Great weather. The glissade down the couloir was the highlight of the hike.

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.

Amazingly loose talus! This peak is best done with snow. Trip report.

Part of the Middle La Sal traverse w/ Tuk. Summited about 4:15 after leaving the trailhead after crossing Tuk and the Razor Fang. Was going to hit Mellenthin on the way back to Gold Basin but chased off by thunderstorms.

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.

Did this with Mellenthin, and Tukuhnikivatz. Was a great day. Made it to the top of Peale in 1 hr 15 mins from the dirt road that heads north just before Medicine Lake and La Sal Pass.

Deep snow on the approach from the trailhead. After a fun climb up the couloir, we started toward the summit. Decided to turn back when storm clouds gathered early. By the time we made it down, lightning lit up the slopes. Next time I'm in the area I'll try the Tuk/Peale traverse via the "razor fang." Looks like it could be a great route given the right snow conditions.

Climbed Tuk first and then traversed over to Peale. Beautiful clear day with views made hazy by smoke from a controlled burn in the central part of the state.

Had a wonderful time in the wilderness today on these two peaks. The best part was the time when the rotten rock of the razor fang tried to eat me.

An easy Utah peak with very different scenery than the Wasatch. Camping out it can feel like an expedition to a different country even though the mountain is little more than an easy hike.

Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2011

PhenomenalWoman

Strike One: Attempting to access Mt. Peale via La Sal Pass from the west, only to find it impassible and covered in snow. (Google maps has a funny way of choosing the "best" directions.)
Strike Two: Breaking in my new crampons and ice axe climbing the snow filled couloir to the ridge, only to turn back when the weather got nasty. Making it to the truck just as lightning lit up the sky and stuck the ground where we had just made our descent. (Instincts, check.)
Strike Three: Heading down to the lower campgrounds to escape the storm and attempt again in the morning, only to wake up to find a huge aspen blocking the road from the storm the day before, and black clouds building before the sun made an appearance. (Lucky that we weren't trapped on the other side of that aspen!)
Mt. Peale may have beaten me, but I still had fun trying to summit and enjoyed my time in the range. Very nice area and I hope to return!

Great climb. Probably easier to start from the road just east of the pass. Sea Level to 12,700 in 27 hours! Could just see Mount Sneffels which I climbed 22 years earlier.

I camped at Medicine Lake the night before. There was intermittent rain and lightning the whole night until 5:00 am. I didn't think I'd be able to climb with the weather, but it finally cleared out. I started from the trail head off La Sal Pass Rd at 6:15. I hiked the trail until I met the 4 wheel drive road and I then followed it until I met 2 cairns on the right. I followed them up the gully. In the last quarter of the gully, I chose to climb up the east side, rather than follow it to the ridge. I followed the ridge east, and reached the top of Peale by 8:05. I had it all to myself. After 20 minutes on top, I started the descent. At 9:45, I returned to the Medicine Lake camp. My favorite part was a gorgeous green field at the top of the gully. I could have stayed there all day. Thank you Mt. Peale for giving me good conditions and further convincing me that mountain climbing is my absolute favorite activity.

Hiked Waas the night before, arriving near the pass around 2:00 am. Got in a couple hours of sleep and started up the trail as the eastern sky turned pink. Loved the view from the top with Canyonlands and the Henrys to the west and the San Juans to the SE.

Had the summit to myself, but ran into about 12 people on the way down. Not bad for a holiday weekend.
