fun outing if you happen to be in Moab. A bit hazy but still with interesting views of Canyonlands

Great directions and info. on the SummitPost page, thanks! It takes ~ an hour from Moab to reach the pass. You could do it without 4X4 but may run into trouble. The trail leads off clearly at the meadow at the pass. However as you ascend into the canyon you enter a long, steep, avalanche wash that is full of trees and debris. Staying to either side may look steeper but will be easier and, having been on both sides, I'd recommend staying to the left. The rest of the hike is steep, constant large Talus, and often without clear switchbacks. The view and the summit are well worth it!

Scrambled up this peak in the 90's. Remember the pica chirping as we were climbing up.

Going solo for the 3 highest LaSals, got Tuk and Peale before Tstorm forced me to descend. The LaSals are beautiful!

The normal route up the couloir was still full of snow and about halfway up the route it really started to snow and blow. We tagged the top and headed down, wishing we had our snowboards for the descent. We couldn't see a thing and will have to return some day to enjoy the peak in different weather conditions.

Highest point in Utah outside of the Uintas. Summitted as part of Middle La Sal Traverse, from Tuk and Razor Fang. I think the Razor Fang deserves its reputation! Beautiful day, massive snowstorm the next day, though.

My wife and I made the top just as a storm built, so we hightailed it down. Our "mini-honeymoon", having been married earlier in the month.

An excellent stop on the way home to Albuquerque from Portland. The climb was longer than I expected and the temperatures were also pretty high (50-60 degrees Fahrenheit). I started at 5:30 am and got down by 12:30 pm.

A memorable trip with Cliff Moser and Ruth Frear. While enjoying lunch on the summit we noticed a fast moving thunder storm heading our way. We made a quick retreat but not quick enough and were caught in a wild storm mixed with rain, hail and Saint Elmo's fire. Electricity was arcing everywhere so we took defensive positions and waited. Lucky for us that lightning didn't break loose and we survived to hike yet another day.

Climbed with Duane Gilliland during our Ultra-prominence swing through Utah and Colorado. Nice day, but cold and windy on the summit. Beautiful area!

Parked at LaSal Pass and spent the night. Climbed this one in the a.m. with Dennis Poulin and son in law, Andrew Davis from Sherwood Oregon. Had a great glissade down the snowy couloir. Mosquitoes were rather abundant and moving fast was the only way to avoid them.

I had originally attempted Peale in early June of 2003. I chickened out at the stream crossing with my VW and hiked up the road instead. Because of time commitments, I only made it up to the base of the mountain before turning around.



In October, I went back and drove through the creek in a rally car style. I ended up ripping off my engine cover...oops. Most of UT had been abnormally warm since early September, so I lucked out in the end of October. It was 55 degrees at the top, near sunset. Whoa buddy. The hike up and down was pretty easy with nary a soul in sight. I saw a coyote that had been killed recently (previous 30 minutes maybe). Perhaps it was a bad omen for someone?

Good hike. Got a little lost on the approach thru the trees, but once in the gully, steep but generally easy climb up talus. Very interesting, small, compact mountain range, outstanding scenery.

Stayed the night at the pass and started out for the couloir as mentioned in the route info on main page. Decided to hit the peak up the throat, should have taken the routes advice, oh well. Made the peak and took Razor's over to Tuk.

It was the 2nd named peak (3rd including the unnamed) out of 3 named peaks (6 including unnamed) along the ridgerun I did that day. Great route, and the bit of snow left was helpful, although in the beginning crampons would have been nice, but I was able to make due chopping steps with my ice ax.

The time estimate for the Razor Fang was pretty accurate, although I never encountered any scrambling above a class 3 on it. I just traversed partway up the rock, but near the base just above the scree, then scrambled on the fairly solid rock to the ridgeline just beyond the exposed portion, thereyby avoiding the class 4 above and the scree below.

The road had just opened to La Sal Pass this past Memorial Day weekend. Drove to just short of La Sal Pass. I ascended the main west couloir. Snow conditions early in the day were ideal. Used crampons on the ascent up the couloir. (see trip report) It was such a nice day, I made the traverse over The Razor Fang to Mt. Tuk. Beautiful summits with outstanding views, although a little hazy.
