Background Info

The purpose of this page is to keep track of my year-by-year summit activity. Not looking for any votes, just want to clean up my profile page a bit. This will be a work in progress, so hopefully I'll be updating it fairly frequently.

Mill Creek Ridge (Grandeur Peak to Mount Aire) 1/8
Mount Wire 1/15(x2)
Grandeur Peak 1/23, 6/12
Lone Peak failed attempt 2/11
An overnighter with Matt. We reached within about 100 feet of the summit, but with daylight coming to an end, and cold and windy conditions, we elected not to negotiate the final piece of ridge.
Bluejohn Canyon 3/12
Not a peak but a long and strenous day. About ½ way through we met a guy who was hiking up the canyon (wrong way) with only one shoe and his leg all bandaged up. He was a police officer from Denver who’d been hiking alone in one of the adjacent canyons and took a fall. He became wedged in a slot and nearly didn’t get out. He’d spent 3 nights out (COLD) and was trying to find his way up to the canyon rim. We hiked him up to the rim and were trying to decide what to do when 2 search and rescue hikers found us and took over. I think he would have got out on his own, but may have spent another cold night out before doing so if we hadn’t encountered him.
Kings Peak failed attempt 3/26
The temperature was 5° when we left the car. My leg was cramping up, and knowing I'd never make the summit I made the tough decision to turn around a couple miles short of Elkhorn Crossing. The first time I've ever attempted Kings Peak and returned home before dark.
Bluejohn Canyon 4/2
Lone Peak failed attempt 4/23
A failed attempt with Jake and Matt. We ascended via Big Willow and reached within about 100 feet of the summit, but decided not to negotiate the heavily corniced ridge beyond.

Mount Olympus 1/2, 1/3, 1/8, 1/15, 1/22, 1/23, 1/24, 1/29, 1/30, 2/5, 2/6, 2/7, 2/14, 2/15, 2/19, 2/20, 2/21, 2/26, 2/27, 2/28, 3/6, 3/7, 3/13, 3/19, 3/21, 3/26, 3/27, 3/28, 4/2, 4/3, 4/4, 4/9, 4/10, 4/11, 4/18, 4/25, 5/2, 5/15, 5/21, 5/28, 6/4(x5), 7/2, 7/9, 7/10, 7/30, 8/27, 8/29, 9/10, 9/11, 9/24, 10/3, 10/15, 10/22, 10/23, 11/5, 11/11, 11/13, 11/18, 11/19, 11/20, 11/21, 11/22, 11/25, 11/27, 12/1, 12/4, 12/5, 12/11, 12/12, 12/13, 12/17, 12/23, 12/24, 12/31
The 78 ascents were a slight step back from last year's 104, but then I wasn't really trying. The quint on 6/4 was one of the most difficult hikes of the year. On 7/9 the ascent included beer and hot dogs on the summit to celebrate lifetime ascent #300.
South Thunder Mountain 1/9
Grandeur Peak 1/10, 1/17(x2), 3/5, 4/23(x2), 4/24(x2), 4/30, 5/14(x2), 5/21(x2), 5/23, 5/31(x2), 6/13(x2), 6/20, 7/4, 9/6, 12/26
Mill Creek Ridge (Grandeur Peak to Mount Aire) 1/16
Mill Creek Ridge (Grandeur Peak to Church Fork Peak) 2/13
Lone Peak 3/12
Lamotte Peak 3/20
A nice ski trip with Dmitry. The thermometer read 0°F when we left the car at the Christmas Meadows trailhead.
Triple Traverse - via Tanners Gulch 5/7
Gobblers Knob & Mount Raymond 5/8
Gobblers Knob - via Southwest Ridge 5/16
Beatout 5/29
Mount Raymond 6/6
I eased back in to the mountains after my Olympus quint 2 days before.
Mount Raymond to Reynolds Peak 6/11
Scouting out the route from Raymond to Reynolds Peak. I was planning to continue on to Little Water Peak, but it started snowing pretty strongly so I called it a day at Reynolds.
Pfeifferhorn 6/25
Triple Traverse 6/26
Gobblers Knob & Mount Raymond 6/27
Wildcat Ridge 7/2
A long day in the mountains with Matt. Continuing the tradition, I extended this one to Little Water Peak.
Gobblers Knob & Mount Raymond 7/5
Mount Baldy 7/11
Kings-Emmons Ridge 7/16
I started and finished this one in the dark. I had delusions of heading up Gilbert Peak, but upon reaching Gunsight Pass it was dark and I'd had enough fun for one day so I headed for the car. I donated several gallons of blood to the mosquitos in Painter Basin.
Mount Raymond & Gobblers Knob via Bowman Fork 7/18
Storm Mountain to Devil's Castle 7/23
Mount Superior and Monte Cristo - via South Ridge 7/31
Gannett Peak (dayhike, trip report) 8/7
I planned this hike way back in the Spring, and it turned out almost exactly how I'd planned. I elected not to hike anything the following day.
Pfeifferhorn 8/20
Mount Baldy 8/22
Spread Eagle Peak to Mount Agassiz 9/3
It took me just as long to summit Spread Eagle Peak from Rocky Sea Pass as it took to get to the pass from the TH. I descended down the southwest slopes of Mount Agassiz and nearly got cliffed out. It was extremely steep and loose but I managed to make it down.
Pfeifferhorn - via North Ridge 9/25
My second time on this route. The climb up the couloir to the north ridge is incredibly loose and nasty when dry - it was much more pleasant when filled with snow.
Pfeifferhorn 10/1
Broads Fork Twin Peaks - via Robinson Route 10/2
Hematoma Quad - via Bells Canyon 10/16
R2R2R 10/30
Not a peak, but at 47 miles R/T I felt it deserved to be included on this list. This hike led to a sore knee, which bothered me well in to December.

2009 Log

Mount Olympus 1/2, 1/4, 1/9, 1/11, 1/15, 1/16, 1/19, 1/23, 1/25, 1/30, 1/31, 2/5, 2/6, 2/8, 2/13, 2/16, 2/20, 2/22, 2/27, 2/28, 3/1, 3/6, 3/8, 3/13, 3/19, 3/20, 3/21, 3/28, 3/29, 4/3, 4/5, 4/10, 4/11, 4/17, 4/18, 4/24, 4/25, 5/1, 5/3, 5/8, 5/16, 5/28, 5/29, 6/5(x4), 6/12, 6/14, 6/19, 6/21, 6/26, 7/2, 7/3, 7/26, 8/7, 8/22, 8/23, 8/28(x2), 8/29, 9/4, 9/7, 9/11, 9/13, 9/18, 9/20, 10/2, 10/3, 10/9(x2), 10/10, 10/11, 10/12, 10/16(x2), 10/17, 10/18, 10/23(x2), 10/24, 10/25, 11/11, 11/13, 11/14, 11/15, 11/20, 11/21, 11/22, 11/25, 11/26, 11/27, 11/28, 11/29, 11/30, 12/1, 12/2, 12/3, 12/10, 12/12, 12/19, 12/20, 12/24, 12/29
I managed 104 ascents on my quest for a 100-ascent year (trip report). No regrets on this stunt, but it did feel like an obligation at times. The quad on 6/5 was by far the hardest trip of the year.
Grandeur Peak 1/10, 2/15(x2), 3/7(x2), 4/12, 4/19, 4/26, 5/2, 5/10(x2), 5/17, 6/7, 6/28, 12/16
Mill Creek Ridge (Grandeur Peak to Mount Aire) 1/17

North Timpanogos - via Cold Fusion Couloir 5/9
A fun climb with the Wasatch Mountain Club, led by Michael.
Triple Traverse - via Tanners Gulch 5/15
Barronette Peak 5/22
I finally succeeded on this peak after staring at it for quite a few years. The snow on the east slopes was hard as concrete on the climb up.
Mount Olympus - via West Slabs 5/29
Beatout 5/30
A solo run on the Beatout. The Wasatch Mountain Club was also doing the hike on this day, but they were running about an hour behind me, thus I got to do all the trailbreaking duty. As usual I got off-route coming down Bells Canyon.
Wildcat Ridge 6/19
Flagstaff Mountain to Sunset Peak 6/27
Triple Traverse - via Broads Fork 7/4
Flagstaff Mountain to Sugarloaf Peak 7/10
Pfeifferhorn 7/11

White Baldy 7/24
Gobblers Knob & Mount Raymond 7/25
Triple Traverse - via Broads Fork 8/8
Granite Peak 8/14 (trip report, written by Moogie737)
A fairly straightforward route, although the remaining snow in the hidden couloir was hard as concrete. The only casualty on the hike was my car muffler.
Mount Superior and Monte Cristo - via South Ridge 8/21
Mount Millicent, Mount Wolverine, Mount Tuscarora, Sunset Peak, Pioneer Peak, Mount Majestic 8/30
Kings Peak, South Kings Peak, Gunsight Peak, Gilbert Peak 9/5
A spooky descent dodging lightning bolts from the summit of Gilbert Peak. The day included sun, clouds, wind, rain, lighting, hail, and snow.
North Thunder Mountain - via Coalpit Gulch 9/12
Cottonwood Ridge (Broads Twins to Mt. Superior) 9/19
Thanks to Matt for leading me on this Wasatch Mountain Club hike.
Mount Sheridan 9/25
Mount Olympus - via West Slabs 10/17
Haleakala 11/1 (trip report)
I atoned for a failed sea-summit idea from our 2006 trip. Dry socks would have prevented me from walking around with blistered feet for the remainder of the trip.
Haleakala 11/7 (drive-up )
Red Baldy 12/5

2008 Log

Mount Olympus 1/2, 1/20, 2/10, 2/15, 2/17, 2/28, 2/29, 3/7, 3/9, 3/15, 3/16, 3/28, 4/4, 4/6, 4/18, 4/19, 4/25, 5/2, 5/3, 5/4, 5/9, 5/24, 5/25, 5/30, 6/6, 6/8, 6/13, 6/14, 6/20, 6/22, 7/4, 7/11, 7/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8, 8/15, 9/5, 9/12, 9/19, 10/3, 10/5, 10/10, 10/12, 10/17, 10/24, 10/25(x3), 11/7, 11/8, 11/11, 11/14, 11/16, 11/21, 11/22, 11/23, 11/24, 11/25, 11/26, 11/27, 11/28, 12/1, 12/3, 12/5, 12/7, 12/10, 12/12, 12/15, 12/17, 12/19, 12/22, 12/24, 12/27, 12/29, 12/31
The 76 ascents gave me the idea to try for 100 ascents in 2009.
Grandeur Peak 2/8, 2/23, 12/31
Broads Fork Twin Peaks 4/12
Lone Peak 4/26
Triple Traverse - via Tanners Gulch 5/10
Bunsen Peak 5/18
Beatout 5/31 (trip report, written by mtn runr)
A nice day to complete the hike which was aborted by last years avalanche. It was fun walking across the frozen Upper Bells Reservoir.
Wildcat Ridge 6/20 (trip report, written by Matthew Van Horn)
In our ongoing quest to stretch Wildcat Ridge further east, we extended this one to Gobblers Knob.
Cottonwood Ridge (Broads Twins to Mt. Superior) 7/5
Triple Traverse - via Broads Fork 7/12

Sugarloaf Peak, Devil's Castle, Sunset Peak, Mount Tuscarora, Mount Wolverine 7/26
Hematoma Quad - via Bells Canyon 8/2
Mount Raymond & Gobblers Knob 8/9

Colter Peak 8/26
If you find a Garmin GPS Map 60 somewhere on the mountain, it belongs to me.
Kings Peak 9/6 - solo day-hike
Mount Millicent, Mount Wolverine, Mount Tuscarora, Sunset Peak, Pioneer Peak, Mount Majestic 9/13
North Thunder Mountain - via Coalpit Gulch 9/20
I finally dragged Shelley up Coalpit Gulch. We'd been planning to go to South Thunder as well, but it was a rainy grey day with lightning, so we decided to save that trip for another time.
Humphreys Peak 9/26
A long day counting the drive down from Salt Lake.
Lone Peak 10/18
Mount Olympus - via West Slabs 10/31
Mount Raymond & Gobblers Knob 11/1
Mount Raymond 11/15

Mount Olympus 1/1, 1/2, 1/7, 1/13, 1/15, 1/18, 1/28, 4/1, 9/21, 11/9
Notice how my pace dropped off after 2/3?
Little Water Peak 1/6
Lone Peak 1/20 (trip report)
Pfeifferhorn 1/26 (trip report, written by Matthew Van Horn)
Pfeifferhorn failed attempt 2/3 (trip report)
Everyone wants to be written up in "Accidents in North American Mountaineering", right? Thanks to Brian for keeping me alive until Search and Rescue arrived.
Grandeur Peak 3/18, 4/7, 9/3
The 3/18 ascent was my first peak following a 30-day stay in the hospital after the Pfeifferhorn accident.
Frary Peak 3/24
Mount Aire 4/21
Gobblers Knob 6/3
Elephant Back Mountain 7/7
Massive hail storm on the descent.

Pfeifferhorn 8/11
Thanks to Grizz for accompanying me on this extremely slow return to the scene of the 2/3 accident.
Mount Raymond 9/1
Bunsen Peak 9/28
Can you say "wind".

2006 Log

Grandeur Peak 1/6, 3/4, 4/7, 4/23, 6/16, 9/16, 9/24, 12/29
Mount Superior - via South Ridge 1/14
Lone Peak 1/22 (trip report, written by Dmitry Pruss)
Mill Creek Ridge (Grandeur Peak to Mount Aire) 2/4
Pfeifferhorn - via North Ridge 2/11
A bitterly cold but beautiful day - the sign at the bottom of Little Cottonwood Canyon road said 0° when we started the drive up.
Mount Olympus 2/17, 2/20, 2/24, 2/25, 2/26, 3/3, 3/5, 3/10, 3/11, 3/17, 3/18, 3/31, 4/9, 4/21, 5/19, 5/20, 5/29, 6/8, 9/10, 9/17, 10/9, 10/22, 11/17, 11/19, 11/23, 11/26, 12/3, 12/5, 12/7, 12/8, 12/14, 12/15, 12/18, 12/20, 12/24, 12/26
Kings Peak 3/25 (trip report, written by Dmitry Pruss)
A long ski trip with the Wasatch Mountain Club. I fell down more times than I could count. Arriving back at the Swanson's vehicle at the TH, I stopped to report back in and promptly fell flat on my ass - perfect punctuation to a 14.5 hour day. But the crux of the route was the drive home - it was snowing so hard I had to roll down the windows and navigate by looking at the sides of the road.
Broads Fork Twin Peaks - via Deaf Smith Canyon 4/2
A beautiful spring hike with Grizz and Lee. My first time up this route
Independence Monument 4/8
Brian dragged my sorry butt up my first desert tower. On the drive home we stopped at Fisher Towers and climbed the first 3 pitches of Ancient Art, but I weenied out and didn't climb the final pitch to the top of the tower.
Sundial Peak 4/22
Buck Mountain failed attempt 4/29
We climbed the Northeast Chimney, but upon reaching the east ridge and with the hardest part of the climb behind us, I started getting a funny feeling in my head and elected to go no further.
Triple Traverse - via Tanners Gulch failed attempt 5/6
We made it to the base of the Dromedary summit block, but spooky snow conditions led to our decision to bail.
Triple Traverse - via Tanners Gulch 5/7 (trip report)
I returned to atone for the failed attempt from the previous day.
Grand Teton - via Stettner Couloir 5/13
My first time to the top of the Grand. The Stettner Couloir was kind of a spooky place to be (especially with the nearly continuous river of spindrift), but we had no problems and a beautiful day.
Devil's Castle - via Devil's Castle Couloir 5/21
Bells Cleaver & Rocky Mouth Canyon Peak 5/26
Mount Superior & Monte Cristo - via Suicide Chute 6/3
Cottonwood Ridge (Broads Twins to Mt. Superior) 6/4
Mount Raymond & Gobblers Knob 6/11, 7/8, 10/15
Grand Teton - via Direct Exum 6/24
A beautiful and quiet day on the Grand. Brian led all the pitches, and I lamely followed. I never would have been able to climb the Direct Exum without Brian's leading.
Mount Rainier - via Liberty Ridge 6/30-7/2 (trip report)
Mount Hood 7/4
A quick trip up without rope or helmets. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but we never really felt uncomfortable. The day started with Mount Hood and ended home in bed in Salt Lake.
Hematoma Quad - via Bells Canyon 7/29
Bullion Divide (Devil's Castle to White Baldy) 8/5
North Thunder Mountain - via Coalpit Gulch 8/12
Broads Fork Twin Peaks - via Robinson Route 8/13
Triple Traverse - via Broads Fork 8/27
Kings Peak 9/3 - solo dayhike
I was hoping for a sub 7-hour trip, but I was having some bad stomach pains which slowed me down a lot on the descent. It was a relief to see the clock tick over the 7-hour mark and take the pressure off for the final 2 minutes.
Mount Washburn 9/30
Pfeifferhorn - via Red Pine 10/8
Triple Traverse - via Broads Fork 10/14
Haleakala 11/7 (drive-up )
I was hoping to try a sea-summit attempt, but being unable to locate the starting point I settled for a drive-up. I returned and completed a sea-summit climb on 11/1/09.
Great White Icicle 12/1
Pfeifferhorn failed attempt 12/9
We (Brian and I) were planning to go up the northwest couloir, but tons of super soft snow slowed us down greatly. After doing the breaststroke up to the north ridge we'd had enough, and elected not to drop onto the Hogum side to make our approach.
