Used microspikes in the couloir, was pounded by a thunderstom on descent. Still loved the hike though!

technicolorNHNot as good as Tuk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2016


After hitting Tuk I tried the ridge line but went lower on the south slopes after the going got a little too spicy for me. It wasn't until afterwards that I read the 'Razor Fang' entry and it's aptly named. There were a couple of very jagged gaps on the ridge. The descent off Peale reminded me of coming down Mt Bross in Colorado. Once out of the avalanche chute some routefinding was required to get back to the trailhead.

UdinkMount Peal, from the couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2016


I had a fairly easy time going up the snow in the couloir, but at first almost got into trouble trying to bypass the snow on the talus. I'd wanted to cross the ridge over to Tuk as well, but one of my dogs had issues with her paws on the talus so I had to descend the couloir again--what a fun glissade! I wrote up a trip report on my blog here: http://udink.org/2016/07/11/mount-peale/

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2014


Did the Peale - Tuk traverse today. Went under the fang rather than over. Overcast day kept the temps comfortable. Had gotten rained out of our CO 14ers trip, so backtracked to the La Sals....made for an excellent Plan B mountaineering day. Beautiful aspens on the way up. Forested gem in southern Utah.

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2014


From La Sal Pass. This completed the Utah County Highpoints for me. I needed Mount Waas and Mount Peale going into 8/7/2014 and did Waas on 8/7 and Peale on 8/8. From La Sal Pass I went up the obvious couloir to the ridge and then on to the summit. From Mount Peale I followed the ridge over Mount Laurel to Mount Mellenthin. Returning the same way I got to the three way junction on the ridge for Peale, Mellenthin, and Tukuhnikivatz and then headed over Peale's NW peak and on to Tuk. This was a fantastic two days in the La Sal's where I was able to stand on the top of 10 different 12,000' peak.

utahjimkvia Medicine Lakes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2014


started at campsite Medicine Lakes, to La Sal Pass & standard route up snowy couloir as described. With Dennis, Matt, McKinley & Mohamed. We then bagged Mt Tuk, and descended the prominent north/south shoulder between the peaks back to La Sal Pass. A leisurely ~8 1/2 hour hay of hiking. Beware the marmots on top of Peale: they will chew unattended packs, pole handles etc.

Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2012


Came from the southern pass after camping out below. Brilliant fall colors in these very splendid aspen stands. Large by Utah standards. scrambled up into some slipper snow covered talus and then into the cloads. I did not get the far reaching views I hoped for, but the swirling opening and closing of the clouds gave me glimpses below every so often that were dreamlike.

Climbed the mountain via the south couloir. Reached the summit just a few minutes ahead of a rain squall that was giving off a bunch of lightening and thunder. Got off the mountain as quick as we could.
