dandrewWest ridge ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2006


My wife and I climbed from Camel's Back road. Easy climb, except for having to bushwack through young Aspen groves and scrub oak at lower elevation. Great views! We were the only ones up there, even on a holiday!

dillweedfun, short 11k hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 1998


hiked from "camel's back" road, the west ridge route, so it was short. We made the summit in about 90 minutes, just after sunrise. an incredible view to the east - I didn't know about all the cirques on the east side. There was an incredible columbine patch in the aspens at the base of the mountain - the largest columbine blossoms I have ever seen. I will definately hike this one again.

Date Climbed: Nov 5, 1983


Climbed this one with Mark Cichoski. We parked his Mustang at the head of Rock Canyon and hiked up a mile further to camp the night before. Late that night a car came past our camp and got stuck in the severely rutted road. We helped them get unstuck and they asked us if our car was the Mustang and they described it like they knew it. The next day we discovered it had been broken into and the stereo had been stolen. Most likely we had helped the same people who had ripped us off. The summit was cold and windy with crunchy light snow conditions.

This is my second time climbing the peak in the winter solo. I started once from Rock Canyon, and the second time from the Y trailhead to see if it was any shorter. Rock Canyon is the better start. A nice, simple, climb with a long approach.

rockhop23Route Climbed: West RIdge via the Squaw Peak Road Date Climbed: July 4, 2003  Sucess!


Solo hike. Got lost a couple of times but once on the ridge, no problems. Attempted to descend via the East ridge towards Freedom Peak but came to my senses before killing myself (loose shale on very steep slope) and descended the West Ridge..

I had attempted Provo Peak earlier in the year, but didn't make it. After hiking all the way from the valley floor, we couldn't find the summit trail and were too tired to bushwhack it.

This time, we did our research more and drove up the Squaw Peak Road to the trailhead. We lost the trail and just picked our way along the terraces to the northwest of the summit. Eventually made our way back to the west ridge and followed the (steep!) trail to the summit. Amazing views of Cascade, Timp and Lone Peak to the north.!

Awesome peak. Nothing techincal, just a great, steep hike. One of the more remote peaks on the Wasatch Front. The views are incredible, the wildflowers are intoxicating, and the crowds are totally nonexistent. Good ski bowls down the north face.

A little bushwacking, but a trail exists above 9k feet.

Fun winter mountaineering adventure. Not very technical, but still a good work out.

MrWasatchRoute Climbed: West slopes, south ridge Date Climbed: 6/27/99  Sucess!


Did this climb with the Wasatch Mtn. Club. Not quite as easy as the west ridge direct, but still fairly easy class 2 climb up steep grass slopes and across terraces to ridgeline south of summit. Once on ridge, a trail appears, and is easily followed to summit.
