mow10Edward Abbey Rules  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2000

Ever since reading "Desert Solitare" at age 17 I wanted the Tuk experience. Arguably the most beautiful mountain in the range. Went on to Peale and almost got Mellenthin in the same day before weather forced me down.

Vagabond ManifestoMiddle La Sal Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2006

Vagabond Manifesto

Unforgettable day, summitted five 12ers in the La Sals in one day. Route up Tuk via Gold Basin, over Little Tuk. Perfect and clear, but the whole range got nailed by a snowstorm the very next day.

The "Island in the Desert" is the most aesthetic of the La Sal peaks.

dillweedsolo summer hike  Sucess!

drove from Salt Lake just to climb it. Edward Abbey's writings drew me to it. It was steep going (from Gold Basin), but not all that far. Incredible views to Canyonlands, Arches, Colorado, etc. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Fun climb and great 360 views from the top. Don't feed the friendly marmots....

FelsbergRoute Climbed: Direct north face gulley Date Climbed: June 11, 2005

Felsberg

a fun route, all hard spring snow. pretty steep - we measured 50 degrees at one point, the crux was a very short section of ice covering a rock band about mid way up. next traversed over to peale and down back into gold basin. down-climbing tuk's east ridge was my least favorite part. the ice crux was my favorite. PICS

Started at cross country ski lot on Geyser Pass Rd. - snowshoed into Gold Basin and then up to little Tukuhnikivatz through very deep snow. Continued along ridge to Tukuhnikivatz's summit and then back the way I came. Glissaded down a lot of the way, but it still took me nine hours roundtrip!! The climb itself was absolutely miserable with the deep powder, but Tukuhnikivatz is probably the most scenic summit I've ever been on!!

Day HikerRoute Climbed: La Sal Pass Date Climbed: 03 July 2004  Sucess!

Day Hiker

I originally planned to summit Peale, but coming from the La Sal Pass parking lot, I did not contour far enough east to find the correct couloir. I reached the ridge just west of The Razor Fang, the wrong side to be if you want to reach Peale. I thought about attempting to traverse Razor Fang, but it looked rather forbidding, considering I was hiking solo, and my Summitpost handle contains the word "Hiker," not "Climber." I decided instead to summit Tukuhnikivatz, and I was not disappointed.

PellucidWombat

Great route, the sliver of snow along the ridgeline was a welcome reprieve from the killer talus and scree. It was the first named peak (2nd total) of a ridgerun that day covering 6 peaks, which included Tuk, Peale, and Mellenthin.

See trip report on Peale's page for details. Made the traverse over the Razor Fang from Mt. Peale. Fun traverse on terrible rock across The Fang.
