BritaWindy/Cold Provo Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2012


This is my second time hiking this peak. It appeared to be a nice day but it got windier and colder the higher we went. We had thought to head over to East Provo Peak but I was too nervous as we started down. It felt like I was gonna blow off the side of the mountain and I couldn't feel my fingers anymore. It was a good hike once I warmed up.

runbyu1WINDY! on the way to East Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2012


Went to the top with Brita...took about an hour and 20 minutes. It was ridiculously cold and windy on the summit. We wanted to go to East Provo Peak but it was so windy that it became dangerous and so cold that it was a problem so we turned back. We ran pretty much the whole way down and drove back down Hobble Creek Canyon (we came up from Provo Canyon).

apachedinoBreakin trail from Rock Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2011


Broke trail in upside-down snow from the campground on. Got pretty bad on the lover parts of the west ridge, but mellowed into wind slabs and wind swept rock higher up on the ridge. Looong day that dashed our hopes of also tagging East Provo Peak. Gorgious views.

Went up this mountain with my buddy Jason and puppy Roxie. Driving the camel back road is very pretty especially during the fall.

WildBlueNever made it


I tired to climb Provo Peak twice when I was 18, and failed both times because we got off route and couldn't navigate very well. The second attempt was in the winter and was my first true mountaineering experience. We cut a tent platform into a steep snow slope and staked the tiny tent down with ice axes and snowshoes. Someday I would like to go back and actually get to the summit.

Beautiful morning hike. Wildflowers, grouse, and Clark's nutcrackers were a bonus.

runbyu1Don't go down the North Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2008


Ran all the way up from the Rock Canyon trailhead...it's a long haul. We decided we wanted to see the Cirque (which was AWESOME!) but coming down the North Ridge was a bit hairy and bushwacking through thick briars took FOREVER to get down. Awesome day though.

A quick hike once the road opens. This is a great afternoon workout that gets you on top of a peak. Also, my dog Sophie's first summit!

thigbeeClimbed several times  Sucess!


I've climbed this mountain four times: Once from the Squaw Peak Road (not bad at all! Quite the nice afternoon jaunt), once from Rock Canyon (looooong), and twice from Y Mountain/Slide Canyon (both times in winter). This is a great peak!

kteichertFalse summit heaven!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2009


Absolutely loved this hike. One of the more enjoyable hikes with some of the best scenery in the Wasatch Range. I have always looked at Provo Peak, wanted to conquer it, but never knew the best way to get to it. I tried to start from Utah Valley a couple times and always found myself lost somewhere behind Y Mountain tired and exhausted and running out of daylight, with another couple thousand feet to go. So my friend finally pointed me to the road that gets you right to the start of the ridge that climbs right up the face of Provo Peak. I'm so glad to have finally done it. It was fantastic and I am hooked on SummitPost now and being an intelligent hiker.

aprovanceBeautiful Morning on Provo Peak!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2009


Hit the ATV trail at 6:15am. Made it to the summit right at 8am. Great trail, easy to find and easy to follow. I took some pictures and looked for the summit registry that I heard was in the cairn at the top, but was disappointed to see it was gone. I had a baggy, my FedEx pen, and a scrap of paper to start a new registry. Will return with a more permanent registry.

August 19, 2009

I hiked up to Provo Peak again today and brought a permanent register with me that I placed inside the summit cairn. Hopefully that will last a while. It was a beautiful hike, we made great time, reaching the summit in a little over an hour and twenty minutes, and down in about an hour. We saw a group of deer down in the cirque on the backside of Provo Peak. Fun hike!

GahugafugaW Ridge to E Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2009


Rode my bike from Rock Canyon CG to the standard trailhead. I have no idea why the guidebook says that road is 4WD only. After stashing my bike, climbed to the summit then began the traverse to the east summit. The guidebook fails to mention how dangerously steep and loose the slopes are. It also doesn't mention that you must contour about 100 feet below the ridge saddle to avoid cliffs, adding even more vertical to the roundtrip. It's a pretty nasty traverse for just being "Class 2", but it's still the simplest way to bag E Provo Peak.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2007


Nice hike up the West Ridge, trail a bit tricky to find near the begining. East Peak is an official peak and worth the trip. Full report with pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/provo_peak/utah_county_hiking_183.htm

Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2009


The road in was quite bad - there was an avalanche about 3 miles from the trail head, but we crawled over it in my buddy's pickup without too much drama.

Lots of route-finding before we hit the ridge. After that, just a steep, rough climb in heavy winds (I estimated sustained bursts at 60 mph based on the "head out the window on the freeway" tests). Summited about 7 PM. It would help to be a little more conditioned than I am; I underestimated this one.

Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2009


Hiked up the west ridge. The snow was pretty much gone except for a few patches. I had to hike 3 extra miles round trip because of a snow slide covering the road.
