Overview

Mt Millicent towers majestically over the smaller western portion of the Brighton ski resort. This pleasingly symmetrical peak is easily accessible, yet steep enough to provide a good workout and some quality backcountry skiing. Routefinding on the peak is easy, and climbing over it is a convenient way to access the summit of the slightly higher Mount Wolverine. One variation of the Brighton Ridge Run descends via this peak.

Red Tape

None. Big Cottonwood Canyon occasionally closes due to avalanche dangers, but this is only during and immediately following some large snow storms.


When To Climb

This peak is best climbed as a snowclimb or backcountry ski climb in late winter to early spring. It is best hiked in the fall once daytime temperatures are lower.

Camping

There are many walk-in campgrounds in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Alternatively, free camping is permitted in the nearby Mt Olympus, Broads Fork Twin Peaks, or Lone Peak Wilderness areas as long as it is done at least 100 ft away from trails.
