BritaCold and windy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 25, 2012

Brita

It took much longer to get to the hike than to actually do the hike. It was steep and my legs were burning but then it was a quick run back to the car. Seeing some bighorn sheep on the trail was definitely awesome! I've never seen some in the wild like that before.

Drove all the way up to where the gate is---RIDICULOUSLY steep! Parked at the gate and Brita and I ran up to the summit. It may be short, but the road is insanely steep! When we came around the corner to where the summit is in view, we saw 4 Bighorn Sheep with, well, big horns! They were near the summit. I snapped a picture when we got close enough and then they ran off shortly thereafter. It was pretty cold and windy on the summit, so we took some pictures, ate a granola bar and drank some fluid and ran back with the sun setting. It was pretty nice. Easiest peak I've ever done physically, but getting there was a bit of a pain but not unbearable.

Parked near the "Dead End" sign because the winter storms have wiped out the road. i doubt it'll ever be restored since choppers can service the intallations at the top. Dennis and I walked up the road, 6 miles and 2500 feet in two hours and walked back down in one. Don't do this one in hot weather. My second visit to the top but a bit more effort than the last time when the road cut out half the distance and elevation gain.

Got a pre-dawn start to beat the heat. Parked at "Dean's Last Chance Spot". Took me 90 minutes up, 1 hour down. Steep but fun. The views were tremendous and I daresay this is a much more interesting peak than nearby West Mountain Peak.

Did this one with my 13-year old daughter on a warm July morning while taking her to camp. The road is steep and the views are worth it.

I liked this peak but carrying 2 kids up about killed me. Pictures and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah/beaver_dam_mountains/scrub_benchmark_102.htm

This peak was tougher on my car than the hike was on me. The road was pretty steep, but the Jimmy made it. I also hiked this one coming home from Vegas. Greg and I took a little trip to get Charleston and Hayford - picked Scrub up on the way home.

I combined this hike with a drive home from Las Vegas. I enjoyed this hike much more than I thought I would. Did Perkins earlier in the day.
