Date Climbed: Oct 19, 2003
|East Ridge - October 19, 2003 - Hiked to Cardiff Pass and then went up the East Ridge of Mount Superior and Monte Cristo.|
Cottonwood Ridge - September 24, 2005 - Went with Mockba, Glenn Merrill, fowweezer, Paul, and Tracy. The ridge west of Monte Cristo is the best part of Cottonwood Ridge. A fun ridge traverse.
South Ridge - October 15, 2005 - Climbed the South Ridge with Glenn Merrill on a windy but sunny October day. Nice scrambling along the ridge and easier than expected.
Suicide Chute - June 24, 2006 - I decided to climb this variation of the South Ridge after reading about it on Joe’s page.
Cottonwood Ridge - September 21, 2008 - Hiked Cottonwood Ridge while starting at Alta.

|The south ridge is a great climb! I summited with the others that just signed the log. I'll have to try it in summer too.|
I agree with PellucidWombat that it was "easier than expected, but the crux was harder than expected" The crux was probably the only 5th class. Our pace up the ridge was slow, but that made it enjoyable. At the bottom third of the route I would highly recommend climbing the rock to the ridge proper and doing the narrow ridge like we ended up doing.

|Truly an excellent route. As a whole it was easier than expected, but the crux was harder than expected, but still not too bad. Overall the route was a beauty, with just enough exposure to warrant a few belays and simul-climbing, but nothing too serious. Perfect for learning rope handling in the alpine environment.|

|Incredible mountain. Some intimidating exposure, and strong winds, but well worth it.|

|One of the best scrambles in the Wasatch. Some exposure and loose rock makes it interesting. The various summit views are outstanding and this is a must-do peak for any serious Wasatch peak-bagger.|

|Nice easy hike and scramble. Some exposure, but nothing too bad. It was much nicer than when I tried it 3 weeks ago. Although the peak was still covered in snow, I kept sinking in to my knee caps and would get stuck and tripped on the hidden logs and scree! I'll have to try it with snow again sometime; maybe earlier in the spring.|
Great winter dayclimb!
