WisemtnButler Fork Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2010
Hiked with Caroline via Butler Fork. Ended up taking a couple wrong turns but found the way eventually. Accidentally started up Gobblers Knob. Oops. Pretty windy at the summit. Took about 5 hrs round trip. Fun scramble at the top!

GarfimiBirthday Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2010


This is a great quick hike, with a nice scramble at the top. The trail from Mill B was busy, but had the summit to myself. I went down one of the chutes to connect with the Desolation trail and then back out of Mill B. Good choice as far as time, but I fell on my side and my cell phone took the brunt of my weight and I shattered the screen. Oh well! Literally ran into a HUGE bull moose right above the second small bridge. (I should stop listening to music with headphones while hiking) I have never been so close to a moose. A great peak to summit for my birthday.

bayzingButler to Raymond, down Neff's Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2010


Great hike, beautiful day. Started from Butler's Fork Trailhead... then ascended to the summit of Mount Raymond. If you're approaching from the East there is an interesting scramble (class 3) as you near the summit... really not too bad... but challenging enough that I wouldn't recommend taking a young kid (under 10). We descended down the SW slope and followed a faint trail that traversed the eastern part of the Wildcat Ridge until Lambs Canyon. We ended up traversing across a couple of couliers with some scree... took longer than we thought... but once we got to the top of Lambs Canyon it was easy going. I definitely have appreciation for those do the Wildcat Ridge from Mount Olympus to Mount Raymond in one day... that looks to be an extremely challenging hike! I highly recommend Mount Raymond... and definitely plan on doing this hike again in the Fall when the colors are out.

6-12-10 #57 and #58 From the S-turn via Mill B North. Rained and snowed for the first 2.5 hours but then I got lucky and it only precipitated intermittently after that. On my way down the 2nd time I met a guy coming up the trail who asked me how much further it was to Lake Blanche. Whoops!

Great hike! Not too intense. Can definitely take a less inclined male with you on this hike to show them a thing or two about how beautiful the mountains are. Good, easy hike for sure.

Traversed from Gobblers via the E ridge. Much easier than it looks. Descended into Mill A and out via Butler Fork.

PocketsOfBlueSummer Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007


Hiked up and down this from BCC in about four hours on another beautiful summer afternoon with J. Elected to take 'shortcuts' up and down the chutes. Not recommended, haha, stick to the trail, it's faster and WAY less sketchy. Encountered some mountaineering chipmunks at the summit.

seanpeckhamNortheast Ridge from Butler Fork  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2007


And came down one of the east chutes (I agree with renogurt this isn't the shortcut I thought it'd be). Original plans were for a pleasant afternoon walk to Circle-All peak, but changed my mind after the first mile and did Raymond instead. With my afternoon start, I needed my headlamp on the way down. There was knee-deep snow in a few spots on the ridge, but snow cover was inconsistent. A young bull moose was standing almost on the trail in lower Butler Fork and wouldn't budge, and snorted and thrashed the branches with his antlers when I tried to shoo him, so I ran back up the trail and bushwhacked up and around him, nearly getting cliffed out in the dark.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2007


This is the last part of Wildcat ridge and I was worked. Note tod self: the chutes that come down from just below the summit are NOT a shortcut to the trail.

Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2012


This was my 4th time on top. (Jan. 07), but the first winter ascent. My cousin Brooke and I enjoyed a beautiful, cool day. One hour to Cirle-All ridge, another hour to Baker Pass, and 55 minutes to the summit. Crusty snow. Just under 2 hrs to come down, back into the ugly valley inversion smog. Ugh. Since then two more times to the top, one in late winter and one on 6/15/07. Always a nice mountain. On the 15th we also did Gobblers Knob. Topped out for #7 at the end of the gnarly and grueling Wildcat Ridge hike with Wasatch Mtn Club members. Eighth summit on 8-30-07 from Bowman Fork: 2+35 up. Summit topper #9 on 10-2-07 from Butler Fork TH. 2+07 up (1" of snow). Tenth time at summit but first time from Mill B North trail (BCC S-curve) and scramble up the south ridge. 2+30 up. Leaf colors gone. Make that eleven times (11-27-07), this one from Bowman Fork w/ Lana, and then over to Gobblers Knob. Windy, cold, snow forecast. #12 02-28-08 w/ Zeejay. Wore snowshoes all the way to the summit. 2+50 up, 1+35 down 4+35 r/t. Fabulous snow. Started early from Butler Fork. #13 8-30-08 with Brooke and Brent via Bowman Fork. 2+42 up, 2+21 down, 5+22 r/t. #14 10.23.08 in combination with Gobblers Knob from Butler Fork TH. Crisp fall day. With Brent. #15 2-24-09 With Brent, Dave & Christine. From the BCC S-curve TH. 4+00 up 2+20 down - plenty of nice snow. #16 6-3-09 w/ Brent 2+21 up 2+09 down, appropriate summit log entry. #17 8-11-09 ahead of Brent & Dave, 2+08 from the road; bagged Gobblers Knob for a complete two-fer! #18 11-10-09 W/ Brent, Dave & Christine Mill B North route 2+45 up, 2+30 down. #19 Combo climb w/ ZeeJay; hit Gobblers first, then Raymond. Not a lot of snow considering the date! #20 5-13-10 W/ Brent via Mill B North - snow, snow and more snow 3+55 up 2+30 down. #21 7-24-10 Solo. After bagging Gobblers. 0+57 summit to summit. Down the west side to Mill B North trail for return. Unbelievable wild flowers everywhere. #22 & #23 9-7-10 From Mill B North we bagged Raymond, reeled in Gobblers Knob, & returned over Raymond. W/ Brent, Dave & JP Lewis. R/T time under 8 hours. #24 12-7-10 W/Dave. Snowshoed from Bowman's Fork, then bagged Gobblers. #25 4-16-11 W/ Dave via Mill B North. Record snowpack made for a climb which at times seemed just like work. Snowshoes to the top from the one-hour point. #26 7-19-11 W/ Brent & Dave via Butler Fork 2+20 up. Then to Gobblers Knob. :) #27 2-9-12 Solo. Two-fer w/ Gobblers 1st. In snowshoes the untracked snowy ridge was a real challenge. Cold & windy, too. #28 7-24-12 Surprisingly cool morning for the date; wonderful views. Bagged Nobblers Gob for good measure. #29 7-31-12 W/ Brent & Anne, after bagging Nobblers Gob. #30 2-5-13 From Bowman Fork in Millcreek Canyon: over Gobblers, down to Baker Pass, trailbreak up to Raymond and back down to Baker and up to Gobblers and back to the waiting car. One long day in snowshoes but worth it. #31 7-6-13 From Mill B North and return via Mill A Basin trail. Beautiful wild flowers und herrliche Gesellschaft! #32 8-6-13 Mit "dem Grossen." Via Bowman, then nach Gobblers.#33 9-7-13 w/ Brent via Bowman Fork. #34 6-24-14 w/ B. Bowman Fk, then to Gobblers. Oh how IVD... #35 3-31-15 After Gobblers. SS til 400' below summit.
