Awesome, bluebird day on Mt. Raymond. Solid crust on the northeast ridge made for a fast ascent. Skied the east face down to Butler Fork. Nice, soft powder...Mmmmmmm, Mmmmmmmm.

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. Strong southern winds. IVD #36 5-30-15 From Butler Fork mit Sonderperson. Schoen.

Climbed it after school via Bowman Fork, ran across several mountain goats on the rocky ridge near the top. One turned a corner and leaped over the ridge like 5 feet in front of the girl I was with.

pbogenfun hike


Have ascended twice... once via Butler fork and the other via Mill B north fork. Mount Raymond is an awesome mountain to climb and I think it's way more fun than it's neighbor, Gobblers Knob. Did both ascents on weekdays and saw absolutely no other hikers the entire trips. A must do hike in the Wasatch.

Around 11am I summited Mount Raymond with Ammon Hatch, Elessar, and Slade Knightly (non-SP member). It was a beautiful sunny and hot day without much of a breeze even on the summit. It was so clear out you could see hundreds of miles in evey direction. It was a great mountain to practice basic mountaineering techniques!

Had originally planned on doing Gobblers and Raymond, but soon changed our mind and only did raymond. Was at the trailhead by 7:00 (an hour later then planned), and summited at 11:00. On the way down the snow got really mushy making travel difficult through the upper mill a basin. Fun glissading back into Butler Fork. Very clear views of the Uintas and clear out to the Stansburys.

Climbed this peak many times, all times of year, usually in conjunction with Gobbler's Knob to the East. An interesting route is up the little used Mill "A" Gulch, past the Maxfield Mine ruins.

Dawn hike with light, fresh snow to tag this and Gobbler's Knob-- close brush with territorial bull moose on way down-- I felt generous and let him have his space.

A fun peak with great views. Lots of people the day I did it, crowded almost. Bring the bug spray. Dropped/lost my camera down a chute near the summit! Expensive mistake...

Always a fun place to go, my favorite route is to go up Bowman over the summit and down Porter Fork.

This is the first mountain I have ever summited. One of the best experiences of my life. I must thank my hiking partners Heather and Steve of Bambara in the Hotel Monaco! I hope this will be the first of many.

I climbed this peak for the first time in '01from Butler Fork in BCC. Circle All Peak was skirted as I had been there before. The second time was from Mill B North Fork in BCC. After hiking 3.89 miles and attaining 9360' we bush whacked up a steep rocky slope and scrambled to the summit along the Southeast ridge. The third time was from Alexander Basin and Baker Pass after summiting Gobbler's Knob. Always an enjoyable hike any time of year. Awsome views of other surrounding peaks. Am I the only one that looks around and recalls when I stood on other surrounding summits?
