jonnollEarly Morning Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2010
I was in Salt Lake City for a business trip where I worked all daylight hours so I did this one in the dark. I loaded the course into my Forerunner and followed it to the top. I definitely had the mountain to myself.

11/26/2010x4 267-270

5/4/2010 I used to come up here all the time, but now not so much. However, today I made it to the top 4 times for ascents 256-259.

2/22/2008 Didn't need snowshoes today. Finally some bare spots. Not a good refreeze so kind of muddy on the way down. Came up from across the zoo. This was my 233rd time up here since I started keeping track in 1998. In the winter I'm usually up here on a weekly basis. Got into a staring contest with a cow and calf moose on the way up and down. They won.

Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2011


Hiked this one with Greg and Kadee (and Oquirrh the wonder dog). Smoggy down below but a great conditioning hike with 2100 feet of elevation to gain and we did the loop hike which made it a bit longer but more worthwhile.

Sorta lame but has a decent view and is really close to town. I actually had the peak all to myself unlike many other Utah peaks I've been on. Came up in the evening and watched a gorgeous sunset.

Mid-day perambulation with Paul before work. Highlights include almost stepping on a young rattlesnake and the nice breeze on the summit (it was hot).

Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2011


Quick trip up from Pioneer park with my wife and son today. Great work out as this route seems considerably steeper than George's Hollow. Last 3/4 of the route was still under soft & slushy snow. Beautiful day around 60 degrees, but windy and cold on top. Great hike!

Go Utes!

Fleshj27Cold Trip Up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2011


First time up; cool winter day--trail intermittent after snow storm, winds 40-50 mph on top. 1 hour 32 minutes up, 1 hour 10 minutes down. Pretty darn steep after the Bonneville shoreline trail. I must've taken the wrong route; this definitely isn't the tomato can everyone advertises...

Climbed this in heavy snow and rain. Lots of fun. No view at the top due to poor visibility; guess I'll have to come back!

Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2010
Fall colors starting to show! Great short hike. It was fun but a little scary to climb the rickety tower. Hiked via George's Hollow.

2nd Ascent - Trail Run up George's Hollow on Thanksgiving, 11/28/13. Saw hang gliders taking off, ran along the ridge.

Great training hike one of the first peaks that is free of snow early in the year. 4.95 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 2155 ft. Stop by The Living Room for a little break. Great views of the valley.

Climbed this morning with my 12 year old son Liam. Great morning with perfect weather. Ran in to crusty hardpack snow and the base of the first false summit. but nothing too bad. Spent an hour on the summit enjoying the sunshine and the handfull of other hikers that came and went. Climbed the tower too which was by far the scariest part of the day as I am terrified of heights. Celebrated the successful climb with lunch at the Pie. Very glad we made the drive from Ogden to hike this great mountain. Can't wait to get some more!

I hiked this in the afternoon, pretty cool little hike, and a good workout. I hit snow for the last third of the hike. It was too cloudy to have any views.

I've done it several times in fall and winter in all kinds of weather. Seen lots of deer and a young bull moose in the area. My opinion: not a very interesting hike relative to all the other possibilities in the Wasatch. Its popularity must be because of its sheer ease and proximity to downtown SLC.
