BKiser90Beautiful March  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 18, 2017


Took the SW ridge up. Parked our car at the Nat. Hist. Museum. Beautiful day but a bit breezy. Temps in the 70s! Descended down the Mt. Van Cott trail to Red Butte Canyon. Easy early season climb.

I like Cephalapod gulch the most, but did a hard run the other day up the northernmost of the ridges coming of the Bonny in 28 min up and 45 round trip. Sore legs the next day for sure!

Scott WesemannBattle Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2010

It took me a lot of work to bag such a little mountain. I took my dog and kids up there on one of the hottest days in the summer of 2009. we had some bad directions, and it took us about an hour of hiking before we ended up in Cepnalopod Gulch. After about 15 minutes heading up the dog wouldn't walk anymore and the kids were crying, so we had to turn back. My kids still call this mountain Mt. Van Hot. :)

Back for more 2/4/2010- I wasn't exactly sure what the best route was, and I ended up going up Battle Gulch, and then getting on the ridge (Battle Creek Ridge) and from there is was an easy hike to the top where I was by myself. I enjoyed the views of the Wasatch and the sunrise. I think I will add a route page because the route I took down was much easier.

4/20/11- With Matt Van Horn, coming over from Ave Twins.
