Yet another one of my beginner hikes. Unfortunately I only did Mount Superior and was too tired (lazy) to do Monte Cristo. I hadn't really realized the concept of peak bagging yet.

Skinned up below the power lines from the church at Alta. Dropped down into a bowl and traversed over another ridge, then caught some turns into a bigger bowl below the North face of Superior. From there we skinned up to the East ridge and booted up to the summit. Skied the chute off the saddle to the East -- great conditions for June!

  • August 3, 2012 -- Followed the south east ridge to the peak, took 2 hours 25 minutes. Here is a break down: From car to base of White Gully 16 minutes, to GasEx pipe #1 28 minutes, (don't go to GasEx #2), to Suicide chute 1 hour 9 minutes, to peak 2 hours 25 minutes, to Monte Cristo 12 minutes. Return via east ridge and pole line pass 2 hours 3 minutes.
  • Feb 21, 2009 -- Skinned up the pole line pass, and all the way to the peak of Mt. Superior took 2.5 hour to ascend. Skied down the North face into Mill D. Skinned up Cardiac Ridge, skied down, skinned up Cardiac Bowl, and then down into Mill B and over to BCC.

  • May 16, 2008, Up the East Ridge with Sean Peckham -- Round trip, with breaks, and jaunt over to Monte Cristo, took 6 hours. The descent, on skies, via the southeast face was fun, but a bit to soft.

    vanman798 and I got a 6 or 6:30 am start, skinned to Cardiff Pass and a bit beyond, and booted up the ridge to Superior. We left our skis there, put on crampons, and traversed to Monte Cristo and back. Ran into Bob Athey and a couple who had just climbed the south ridge, and then skied the awesome southeast face from the summit, though because of our delay from tagging Monte Cristo, the corn was past its prime and down low was more like mush. I can't wait to ski it again without the side trip to catch it in ideal conditions.

    Once a long time ago I also did Superior only in the summer. Nice to have taken care of the unfinished business.

    3/30/08 Great day for climbing; lots of snow. I do this route almost every year!

    6/29/08 I pieced together couloirs and small rock steps on the SE Face and joined the S Ridge about 200 yards from the summit. A good solo climb on a very nice day.

    Ascended via the South Ridge. No ropes necessary and you can make the route as easy or difficult as you choose. Incredible views from both summits. The trail down from Superior to Cardiff was very easy to lose (which we did again and again). From Cardiff Pass down to the road it was easy to follow. About 6 hours round trip.

    What a fun scramble. Summited on a day with very poor visibility due to the largest wildfire in Utah history burning 120 miles south, with a southerly wind.

    Hiked with Scott (climb14ers). Fun, quick scramble with unique views of the Cottonwood Ridge at this time of year. The north side was snow covered, and the south side was melted out with fall colors still present. It was a beautiful contrast of fall and winter split along the Cottonwood Ridge.

    9/5/08- Climbed via the South Ridge with Matthew Van Horn. This has to be one of the best routes in the Wasatch. The exposure is great and the scrambling seems to never let up. There are a few tricky exposed moves, but the climbing is fairly easy all the way.

    10/12/06- Climbed Superior and Monte Cristo with Mauraders from SP. This was a PERFECT day and we only saw one other person on the trail the whole hike..weekdays in the Wasatch are the way to go! The views from this peak are just incredible and I will try and come back and do this hike every year. There was some snow, but not much at all on the ridge and the scramble was enjoyable, although I did pull off a large rock that banged my shin pretty good.

    6/7/12- via the South Ridge with Matt V. and Jun32.

    As stated with Renogurt below, pretty much no visibility at the top, but still very fun. Lot's of cornices. Came back on Sept 3 2007 to do the South Ridge, very fun variation, wanted to continue on the Cottonwood Ridge west to peak 11,033, but it will have to wait until another time.
