Bun84067A blustery hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2012


3/10/2012 - Second trip up, this time with views! Gorgeous views! My wife made it to the top, as did our little dog Pepper. What a great day. Got to hang out with Kadee and Castlereagh.

2/25/2012 - This was my first time up. The day started out very windy and quite warm, but the winds died down and the temperature dropped. Neither was a major factor, however. (Except that my bottled water started freezing!)
It was fun to see Joe Bullough get his 400th summit! There were ~10 people at the top when we got there, and Joe graciously offered us hot dogs. (Both he and his wife seem like great people.)
Thanks goes to Kadee for helping me prepare, and then accompanying me on the hike. I just wish the clouds hadn't been there so we would have had better views.
It was a great day and a fun hike!

Helped Joseph Bullough celebrate his 400th summit, Bryan's (bun84067) 1st and my 5th. Had a great day and it was fun to see all the SPers at the summit.

A total of 155 times. I love this peak in winter. Where else can you get 4000 vertical feet in and virtually never need snowshoes?

2/25/2012 Had a great time participating in Joe B's 400th ascent although I have to say that cupcakes piled high with gooey icing do not make good mitten food.

12/2/11, 11/7/11, 4/20/11 (with Sam!), 4/12/11, 11/13/10, 6/4/10x2,
5/20/10, 4/24/10, 4/9/10, 4/3/10, 3/4/10, 2/26/10, 2/20/10, 2/13/10, 2/2/10, 1/27/10, 1/20/10, 10/29/09, 4/11/09

4/2/09 I picked this peak to do today because I thought it was going to be easy. Ha ha ha. I didn't bring snowshoes. Not smart. Moogie737, who did, was sinking in a foot and I another foot on top of that, and those were the good sections. I did a lot of crawling. After he ditched his snowshoes on the final steep push, we took turns shoveling the chest high snow out of the way with our hands to enable us to take a step.

03/04/09, 02/27/09, 02/10/09, 12/29/08, 12/23/08, 12/18/08, 12/13/08, 11/17/08, 11/11/08, 11/7/08 plus 120 other times.

21 January ascents, 23 in February, 16 in March, 25 in April, 8 in May, 2 in June, 1 in July, 1 in August, 4 in September, 8 in October, 23 in November, and 23 in December.

Date Climbed: Dec 27, 2011


Great hike up the steep trail. Great views of the city lights the whole way, fun scrambling at the top, perfect weather, and some sliding down the icy parts of the trail on the way down. Finally made it up this one after staring at it for so long.

Main trail in mid summer. Cool on top. Descended off trail unfortunately and passed a few rattlesnakes. Fun time despite the encounter.

DentedvwEasy walk in the woods!   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2011


After a fairly grueling Lone Peak trip, this was over sooner than expected. When we reached the shoulder, I turned to my buddy and asked "is this really it?" I didn't believe it.
Unfortunately, once back to the Jeep, I left my Oregon GPS on the back bumper and drove away. Half an hour later, I returned, but it was long gone. I left my name, number, email and a plea to return it on the startup screen, but I have not gotten a message yet. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as it was well over $400. Drat.
All the way down, nearly everybody we passed asked the same question, "how much longer to the shoulder?" I gave up estimating and gave the same answer after a dozen.

awilk7Mt Olympus Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011
Hiked and scrambled with a friend up Mt. Olympus Trail to the south summit, beautiful summer day. Snow was clear enough to only set foot on it once on the summit itself. Few bugs even with lots of runoff and vegetation. View to the rest of the central Wasatch to the south was striking.

idpeakgirlThe first summit in my life, I think  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1987


Started on a trail not knowing where it went. Somehow got off the trail and climbed the slabs to the summit. Probably not the smartest thing, but hey, kids do dumb things all the time and survive! The challenge of this peak got me hooked on climbing rocks.

voxnihiliNice Afternoon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2011


Left work at noon and was back to the car before dark. Beautiful view. A little bit of snow up near the top. Nothing major, but it made me take the scrambling section more slowly.

Steep, then steeper. It was fun when it was over. Great mountain. Nice assortment of snakes and birds. Scrub oak on side hills about as thick as I've ever seen.

Nice steep grade on this 3,5 miles trail with a beautiful view over the Salt Lake City. Gorgeous weather hiking in the t-shirt! Last third of the hike in the snow up to 3 feet still warm enough for the shirt.
