Route Climbed: La sSal Pass - via a direct shot to the peak Date Climbed: Sept. 14 2003
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.
Route Climbed: La Sal Pass Date Climbed: 05/27/2003
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.
Route Climbed: South ridge from Gold Pass Date Climbed: June 20 1998
Wish I had a map! On the climb I was postholing in 2 ft. of snow, then along a long, slow talus ridge. At the summit storms came up and I made a quick decision to head down the other side instead of across the ridge and then try to go around the mountain. I descended talus to treeline, then bushwacked until I found a trail, then a jeep road with no idea where it went. 14 hours later I was in the desert after dark with no water and 20 miles from my car when a camper took pity on me and drove me back.
