|Took my 7week old pup to the top. Nice, leisurly hike where we met a lot of other dogs. Saw Gobbler's Knob and Mt. Raymond from the top. Green the entire way up.|

|Nyle Walton||Route Climbed: south ridge from 33rd South and Wasatch Boulevard Date Climbed: February 22, 1949|
|On Washington's Birthday, Ronald Davis, Ronald DeWaal, and yours truly undertook the first mountain climb of our young lives. Inspired by Richard Halliburton, we tackled the small mountain immediately east of Salt Lake. Suburbia had not reached these foothills yet. Leaving Wasatch Boulevard, we had to dodge deer in their winter feeding ground to assail the first slope of "Mount Halliburton," which we dubbed the mountain since we were not aware of its actual name. It took us three hours to trudge upward through knee-deep snow to reach the summit, a disappointing achievement since we could see higher points further east and south. Nevertheless we unfurled a white cloth on which I had lettered our names and the date. Three sophomores from South High School then posed proudly for pictures before trudging back down to Wasatch Boulevard and home. |
The following year (1950) Ronald Davis and I went on to greater glory on the Grand Teton and Popocatepetl. Subsequently during the following decade, I climbed Orizaba, Mount Rainier, the Matterhorn, Huayna Potosi, and Mont Blanc. In 1971 I completed my mountaineering career in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru by summiting Vallanaraju and attempting Huascaran. More casually I hiked up Vesuvius, Fuji-san, and many of the higher peaks of the Wasatch and Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada. In the early eighties, I enjoyed two three-week treks in the Nepalese Himalayas, first to Everest Base Camp and two years later up the Kali Gandaki and around Annapurna. Now I am too old to climb anything but a few flights of stairs. Why must youth be wasted on the young?

Date Climbed: Jun 13, 1986
|I've climbed a few times when growing up. |
The first trip I remember was probably June 13-14 1986 (?) when I slept on the north end of the very rocky summit with my Dad and brother Mark. It wasn't the best campsite, but I wanted to sleep there.
The last time I was on the summit was with my wife Kimberly on August 30 2008.

|I hiked Mount Aire only. It's a nice short hike, though it's steeper than I had expected.|
