ApexrockSuicide Chute -> South Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2014

Apexrock

When we reached the summit of Mt. Superior we encountered a surprise white out blizzard that forced to us to try and descend the mountain as timely and safely as possible. Because of this we never reached the summit of Monte Cristo. Too bad the two peaks are listed on a joint page :( Anyways, tons of excellent climbing to enjoyed on this route. Can't wait to do it again in better conditions!

I'm not gonna say we bit off more than we could chew with this one, but we definitely bit off a lot. 45+ degree consolidated snow slopes were the part I didn't count on. There were some places on the eastern ridge of Superior that were pretty intense in the snow. There was more exposure than I was expecting. Definitely not a "beginner" winter ascent. Super fun though. We snowshoed it, and I think we pissed off the a lot of the AT skiers in the area (even though we tried to stay off their skin tracks whenever possible).

Solo via Cardiff Pass and off trail scramble along ridge line topping Cardiff and Little Superior. Started late getting sunset pics over Cristo but missed that summit. Finished in the dark across Cardiff south ridge and realize I may have gone across Hellgate Cliffs getting off trail (not fun or smart in the dark).

Staying at the Cliff for a conference. Had a few hours one afternoon, and thought I'd try to bag this one. Unfortunately I had to turn around right as the scrambling started due to lack of time. Oh well. Maybe next time. I throughly enjoyed the scenery and climb that I was able to complete...

Had a fun day on Mt. Superior/Monte Cristo. Bagged both summits. (Why isn't the register on the true summit?)I think I might have gotten a bit off route though because I ended up having to deal with some pretty intense class 4 stuff that pushed my solo comfort level.

Had a blast flying solo. Scrambling was secure and fun but not scary. Tagged Monte Cristo and headed back East all the way to Mt. Wolverine

The south ridge is a super-fun scramble and, other than a single move, is no harder than class 3-4. You can probably even work around the crux to one side or the other. Tagged Monte Cristo, then picked my way down the nasty, partly-melted-out bowl SE of Superior. Trip report.

Best thing about this peak is the summit view towards the Pfeifferhorn. With a little bit of a zoom you can take a picture that reveals the entire winding trail. A neat little view. Also some nice views toward Lake Blanche, revealing a cute little hanging lake over Blanche which would make a fine spot to camp.

My wife and I topped out Superior, and Monte Cristo with the Wasatch Mountain Club. Fast pace, and only got about five minutes on either summit as we were concerned by large cumulonimbus clouds to the south. The class 3 was a riot! Go Utes!

Great hike! Not to long, but steep, scrambly, challenging, and incredible! Awesome views, and if you go during Oktoberfest, you can hear the music/yodeling from up there. :)

Headed up S slope, picked up trail along ridge. Got rained on a few times and had a painful bushwhacking exit W of Hells Gate. Fun times.

This was the hardest hike to a peak done yet. my sister bruk and my dad started from alta, up to the pass, then up the rocky ridge to the top of Mt. Superior. We had planned on going further to the other higher peak, though dad said the weather was getting worse and Bruk was getting tired. We did go up and over Cardiff peak with the antenna on the way back to alta.
