The Wasatch Mountains sit on the western edge of the Rockies. Stretching south through Utah from Bear River in the north to Mount Nebo in the central part of the state, their peaks dominate the skyline of Salt Lake City and nearby urban areas. Elevations range from 9,000 to almost 12,000 feet, with eighteen peaks above 11,000 feet. All of the 11ers can be summited as a day-hike, without the use of climbing gear.

This guide provides information on trailhead access, approaches, and routes for every 11,000-foot peak. It includes overview maps of major roads, topographical overview maps, and detailed route maps for each peak. There are also total roundtrip mileages, elevation-gain (or loss) figures, and alternate routes to help hikers plan their adventures.

“A great reference for anyone wanting to climb the Wasatch 11ers.”
— David Rose, author of Utah Thirteeners: A Guide to Climbing the 13,000-foot Peaks of the High Uintas. (University of Utah Press 2004)

RANDY WINTERS lives in Salt Lake City. He advises reluctant outdoors people, “Leave now, go hike!”

DeanA welcome addition

Voted 5/5

I was really happy to see this book get published. I love these peaks of the Wasatch range and someday hope to climb every one of them, even though I live in Washington. I have climbed Mt. Timpanogas, Mt. Nebo and AF Twin so far and this book will help me with the others I have in my sights. I put out a Summitpost page on Mt. Timp so you can trust me when I say I love this area and these mountains. This book has fine descriptions of how to get where you need to be, a map of each one and a helpful description that you will find helpful. The author has climbed each of these peaks more than once and is very knoweledgeable with each peak of course. If your intent is to climb any or all of these peaks, this would be a helful guide to have on your bookshelf.
