via Catherine's Pass, after work one evening. We were going to go over Millicent too, but it was getting late, so we dropped off the ridge, crossed a boulder-field, and jogged down the trail to Brighton from Twin Lakes, arriving at the parking lot just as it was getting too dark to see.
Edited: did these peaks again Oct 14, 2007 this time including Sunset Peak and Millicent; see this album
Another update: in December 2010, skied from Grizzly Gulch over Patsy Marley, then skied off Wolverine (to the northeast) and Tuscarora (west face) then did two laps on Sunset Peak's north face. Summitted again in spring 2011 as part of a few laps in Wolverine Cirque - skied the west couloir from the summit (awesome).

Hiked the Brighton Ridge to Millicent, Woverine, Tuscarora, Sunset Peak, and Pioneer Peak. Tremendous fun! Millicent's NE ridge is easy snow hiking. Wolverine/Tuscarora is easy snow hiking as well. Sunset is a bit harder because there is a Class 3/4 rock spine in the middle of the ridge. I chose to bypass the rock spine onto a 38 degree, north facing slope which brought me back onto the ridge. Only use that bypass under total stable snow conditions. Pioneer Peak was a beast. 3' snow drifts on the ridge about every 20 feet. Hiking down off of Pioneer was 2' of soft powder all the way to Brighton. Good workout! Views are oustanding. Highly recommended.

Nice easy hike to take a lady on, but still get some nice exposure on the cirque traverse. Very interesting views on each side it both these peaks look so different. Nice to stop at the lakes on the way down for a lunch.

Four successful times. The Silver Lake/Catherine Pass/Marys Lake r/t is about 4 hours. Fantastic views. Another loop on 9-14-06 included both Honeycomb Cliff summits and Millicent. This was also about 4 hours. Two snow climbs (3-15-07, 4-27-07) provided many spectacular views of surrounding summits and the Wolverine cirque. Thanks to Brent, Christine, Lana and Kim. Well, make that five times, and today was in early season snow (10-23-07) and lots of it. With Dave, Michelle, Christine & Lana. #6 7-22-08 w/ Brent as part of Silver Lake loop including Sunset and Pioneer Peaks (4.5 hrs r/t). #7 on 1-31-09 w/ Brent on a windy, blue-sky-everywhere day. 2+21 up, 1+31 down (snowshoes all the way) #8 on 4-21-09 as part of Brighton Bowl ridge run including Millicent, Tuscarora, Sunset, Pioneer, 10,321, Preston, Clayton and 10,420'. 6+45 car to car. Began at Nordic Ctr at Silver Lake. #9 3-16-10 From Nordic Ctr over Patsy Marley. 2+15 up, nursing a recovering knee injury. 1+35 down, snowshoes the entire trip. #10 4-20-10 With Brent, Dave & Walt. Next to last 10er as part of Brighton Ridge Run on snow for this spring. Great in spite of gusty winds and a few crotch-deep post holes. #11 on 10-19-10 as part of Alta Ridge Run w/ Dave (Cardiff Pass to saddle east of Sugarloaf, etc.) #11 3-13-14 W/ ZeeJay via Grizzly Gulch & Patsy Marley on SS. 1+40 up. #12 8-23-14 1st snows.

Up and down the same way from Catherine Pass starting at Alta. Fun and on the easier side, with some cool views of the surrounding peaks.

(if you are on your way from Wolverine to Catherine Pass.) A great hike (or run) is to go up Grizzly Gulch to Twin Lakes Pass, climb Patsy Marley to the South, follow the rim around Wolverine Cirque to Wolverine, Tuscarora, Catherine Pass, and descend Albion to your start.

Bagged these two peaks as part of a loop from Silver Lake, over to Catherine Basin and down past Lake Mary. An easy hike with outstanding views, and I loved the Wolverine Cirque. Saw a bull moose on the trail to Twin Lakes.

Wolverine and Tuscarora are two really nice mountains with a short approach. I climbed them during the Brighton Ridge Run. There was a thunderstorm to the north of us that made us descend down the ridge in a hurry.

Bagged both of these on a snowboard, pre-splitboard days - postholing with fellow ski/snowboard school instructor Ken. Tuscarora Chute was amazing, very few tracks!

Short, easy hike, but what a spectacular view of the Cottonwood Ridge and the Albion Basin. Mt. Tuscarora has an equally wonderful view of the Catherine Pass area down to Brighton. The morning was beautiful and there was so much wildlife at the base of the headwall (southwest end of the Twin Lakes). I will definitely head back to this area again and again.

One of the most enjoyable peaks in the Wasatch. Summited many times, a wonderful half-day peak from various sides.
