Took our party 2 hours to complete the hike up and down. We stayed at the top for a good several minutes. The views were exciting. Th Neebs was looking good as was the chief Tintic peaks to the south, all covered in snow. Everything to the west and north looked brown and angry. We should probably start sacrificing dogs named Jane so Thor will send us more of the white stuff. Oh yeah, this was a fun little hike. There is absolutely no trail so if you like bush whacking then this is would definitely be your thing.

I found this mountain delightful. I was bummed I didn't need to pull out the crampons I got for Christmas, but still enjoyed the scramble up some rocks and the snow. I also was rather taken by the assortment of rodents. I enjoyed a nice mouse, but a bunny would elude me. All and all a good day. P.S. I think Rodents and Pachyderms are synonyms right?

The aptly named Pinyon Peak was gorgeous. It had a little bit of scrambling, some snow, some steep, some shale, some sexy scenary. Basically all the important S's. This was the hardest of the Tintic Mountains I have done, and was rather pleasing! Go have some phun ASAP!

The road to the trailhead was muddy and a little icy. The hike from the pass was snowy but not too bad in winter. Pinyon Peak via the southwest ridge was a nice route.

Last year I did Lime choosing it over Pinyon because of building thunderstorms. Went back to scale the great Pinyon. Carrying both kids was a killer (pack weight up to 70 lbs now). Kids were having so much fun they didn't want to leave summit. So I cleared the summit area of dead wood, rebuilt the summit carin with a 10 foot pole sticking up and built a rock lined trail the last 100 feet. Also saw tracks in snow on top, turns out to be Wasatchvoyage one day before! http://www.willhiteweb.com/tintic_mountains/pinyon/lime_peak_234.htm

My wife and I climbed it from the south side and right from the highway on our way to Delta. There was some postholing, but we didn't need snowshoes.

Went up the west side and encountered more snow than expected but went down SW ridge, which is the way to go.
