Mt. Wire has become a regular part of my training routine. It is a perfect way to get in over 2K in elevation gain in under an hour and it is so convenient and accessible. I have climbed it in all seasons and conditions. I have enjoyed peaceful sunrises and sunsets as well as raging storms. I’ve had several incredible wildlife encounters, including a herd of elk running a few yards ahead of us as we ran down from the summit and a close call with a rattler. I spent almost an entire day in Nov 2010 on this mountain with some great friends bagging the summit 5 times. This is a perfect training hike/climb/run for all seasons.

Fastest time up: 39 minutes.
Total summits: 61

On March 31, 2009 Dave introduced Brent & me to this pleasant little elevation gain of 2,300'. Surprisingly there was over a foot of new snow on top and scores of deeper drifts en route. Wildlife included a herd of deer and a large coyote. No snowshoes required today but they would have been nice to have for about 1/4 of the climb. 11-26-10 4x multiple ascent day, beginning at 6:45 a.m. W/ Matt, ZeeJay and Scott. Total time for quadruple ascent and return was 8+40. Snow all the way. #6 12-16-10 Solo. New snow on icy tracks - slippppery! 1+06 up. Then did Grandeur Peak. #7 2-19-11 Solo, 1+06 up, then did Grandeur Peak and 2/3 of Mt. Olympus. Light rain, light snow. #8 3-8-11 w/ JohnP Lewis. Broke trail literally the entire way from parking to summit - one foot of new snow! 2+03 up. #9 4-30-11 Solo. 6" new snow 1+07 up. Did Grandeur west route afterward. #10 6-4-11 First peak in the Triple Play (add Grandeur and Mt. Olympus, in that order) 0+58 up, dry. #11 11-3-11 1st leg of another Triple Play, w/ ZeeJay & Brent, 0+58 up again! #12 11-18-11 Had to go here because Mt. Olympus trail was closed because of bad automobile rollover accident. #13 12-13-11 Chilly, windy but no snow. 5.55 a.m. summit. #14 3-20-12 W/ ZeeJay, very little snow or wind, 1st day of spring! #15 4-21-12 As last leg of Reverse Triple Play w/ Gristle. 1+05 up, 0+45 down. Parking was a zoo because of Hogle Zoo attendees. #16 3-26-13 First peak in the Triple Play 1+23 up, 1+08 down Very little snow but tons of canyon drainage wind early on! #17 11-5-13 First leg of abbreviated Triple Play in 4" fresh snow. W/ Brent. #18 5-28-14 W/ John Lewis. 1+08 up. IVD sehr.

When I lived by the U I did as part of my standard workout routine, making counts would be out of the question.

Climbed it from pioneer park yesterday with by bros. Whoa, it was a killer! thank god it was so short and we were at the top in about an hour and half. the descent took about the same amount of time. overall it was an excellent (if somewhat steep) hike and amazing views.

gotta try Georges Hollow next time :)

i hiked this without snowshoes or crampons despite the recent heavy snow we had this week; it was totally fine UNTIL i got to the trees at the false summit; from there to the top was a big snowdrift and it was slow-going. i made it though.
my wife had a telescope on our deck and could see me at the reflectors, that was cool.
i'll be back for sure, it was super accessible and an awesome view.

Climbed several times. I go to pharmacy school at the U and sometimes have long breaks between classes, that's when you get really productive and go hiking! This and Mount Van Cott to the north are nice short hikes with easy access, for me. Especially enjoy them in the spring.

This is a very nice hike, and I bet the views would be fantastic but as it was I had 100 feet of visibility. I went up the ridge from Red Butte and came down Georges Hollow, which was a gorgeous fall/winter wonderland with an inch of brand-new snow dusting the pink, orange, and green leaves and the tiny Gambel oak canopy enclosing the trail.

Edited to add: I did this hike again by the same route under blue sky March 22, 2008.
Another update: In summer 2010 ran a 14.5 mile loop in 3:45 from Georges Hollow over this peak and to the end of the Emigration Canyon/Red Butte Canyon ridge, then down Emigration Canyon.

Need to relax after a long day in the office. Headed up Red Butte and then moved on Mount Wire. Came down by way of Georges Hollow. Great early spring workout.

I see this peak every day at school, so I decided to knock it off my list on a wonderfully warm March day. I went up the Georges Hollow trail, a very nasty mix of mud and slush. Went down the Pioneer Park route (goes between the beacons)- this route was clear of snow but VERY steep. Lovely hike with a nice burn in the legs.

I use this hike as a training run several times throughout the summer months. Sometimes I start from Red Butte Canyon and sometimes I start from Wakara Way (or whatever it's called). Steve The Dog loves this hike, too.

I was looking for a low elevation winter climb and thought that Big Beacon would be a good choice. Nice view from the top.

One of my favorite spring hikes in the Wasatch, free of snow early (esp. Pioneer Park route), kind of like a little Mt. Olympus. A wonderful half day (if even that long) hike.
