For some reason turned north at a fork in the canyon and bushwacked up to a saddle beneath the peak - a decision that on the climb down by the correct route looked obviously wrong. The drop off at the top was horrifying.

Found the trailhead, but am not sure I was ever actually on route from there. A mile from the car, I never saw anything resembling a trail (or even a use trail, for that matter) until the last 15 minutes to the summit.

The summit views were awesome. The summit cairn was a work of art - cool.

Beautiful hike up the south route. Cool canyon -- even in July -- and a better view than the Grand Canyon. Descended the northern route. Hard -- see my comments on route info and the topo map. It took a leisurely 2.5 hours to reach the top and a fairly grueling 3.5 hours to get down. Go south, young man.

Nearly died on the scramble to the peak - not for computer geeks! Fantastic view, though, and really a nice hike through the canyon. The drop-off at the peak is absolutely stunning.

Sawtooth Canyon (June 19, 1999) - Great mountain. My favorite part is the huge cliff that drops from the summit for 4,000+ feet - amazing! Read in the register that its a favorite place for hang gliders to jump off. I don't think I'll be doing that anytime soon.

West Sawtooth Canyon (April 30, 2006) - This is a nice hike. It was even more impressive to see the huge northwest face of Notch Peak from the base of the mountain than from the summit.

An absolutely awesome desert peak. The "notch" has to be seen to be believed. Next time, the northwest arete! Ha!

Long drive from SLC but a great, remote hike with staggering scenery! Pictures don't do this peak and it's cliffs justice.
