Alex WoodWrong Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2013

Alex Wood

We were trying for Tuk but got lost in the woods on our skis. Ended up popping out on treeline below Mellenthin and decided to climb it! Left the skis about 300ft above tree lins because it was scoured pretty bad (lotta rocks). I guess we went up the "west ridge". The final 200 yrds to the summit were pretty cool; it was a narrow, corniced ridge. The winds were in excess of 50 mph and it was definitely sub zero. Totally worth it though! We could see Castleton from the peak (we climbed it the day before. It was around 6 hrs round trip for us

Did this in a combo with Peale, and Tuk. Did Peale first in 1 hour 15 mins from the dirt road just before Medicine Lake. Then did Mellenthin in 1 hour 15 from the top of Peale. It was a LOT steeper than it looked from Peale.

Crazy, gusting winds made the Moab valley a dustbowl and the final bit painful as bits of snow and dirt were stinging all the way up. Attempting the winter route for Peale, but the amount of snow forced us to change plans and hit the much easier Mellenthin.

Date Climbed: Nov 21, 2009
Started at Geyser Pass Winter Parking, followed the road to the pass, and climbed through deep snow to the North Ridge of Mellenthin. Traversed over to Peale next. After that I scrambled over the Razor Fang to Tuk, and descended north into Gold Basin and back to the car.

Mucho pot holing, wished I'd had ski's like the two we meet on top, had a great glissade though down the north face in a great shoot. I tried to do the triple in July 97, made Tuk and Peale but the thunder bumpers got to intense by about noon.

Climbed NW ridge, but left skis at base of rock section. Got to summit and thought 'dang how stupid were we?'as the North face looked to be full of consolidated stable powder. Sadly downclimbed to skis and skied through Horse Gulch back to Geyser Pass. But - beautiful sunny day on a summit in La Sals in the winter, with the desert below - can't ask for more.

Climbed the large shale all the way up the west face to the peak. A lot of effort, but it was probably a unique way to go.

We were heading towards peak 12271, but got on the ridge heading directly to Mellenthin, so we decided to just scramble up the west face. It was great weather and a great hike. We were too tired to do Tuk and Peale that day.

Vagabond Manifesto

Summitted as part of Middle La Sal Traverse, last peak of the day, summitted at 6:30 PM. Perfect weather all day. Herd of domestic (not mountain) goats at the summit, staring curiously. As you would expect given the late summit time, bushwhacking below treeline in the dark was interesting. Don't miss nearby Mt. Laurel!
