Approached from Willow Heights trailhead. Overnighted above willow lake. Hiked ridgeline to top. Wonderful wildflowers the whole way. Trailless. Why is it necessary to have three geological survey markers on this summit?

Climbed up Scott Hill from the Guardsman Pass road. spent a night on top of Scott with perfect weather. Then hiked down the ridge, checking out the views from 10009, Silver, and Desolation Peaks. Then hiked down the Desolation Lake Trail back to where my truck was waiting.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2009


My original plans was to hike to Desolation Lake via Beartrap Fork, but mistook where I was and hiked to the lake by Mill D. Got to the lake and decided to hike to the top of Desolation Peak and then hiked the ridge to Silver. Came out via Mill D Fork in the dark.

Started at Guardsman and went all the way to Desolation Peak and then out Mill D for a total of 9.25 miles. What a fantastic morning to be in the Wasatch with IMO the best sunrise of the year over the Wasatch peaks bathed in a full moon. Made it to work just after 8:00 AM.

seanpeckhamski tour  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2008


I didn't realize this was named. Shortly after my Avalanche I class, my buddy from the class and I picked this area as an educational but relatively safe place to poke around after a few days of very windy storms. We took the south ridge which we gained from Beartrap Fork (less efficient than just going all the way up Beartrap). Cornice-cutting practice culminated in a huge one being splattered into Dutch Draw, triggering nothing, and then we skied a lap in Beartrap and a couple in what I think people call North Willows.

Date Climbed: Apr 11, 2009


Skinned up on my skis from BCC via Beartrap fork to Peak 9990, then followed the ridge south to Silver Peak, skied down Dutch Draw, returned to Peak 9990 and Silver Peak, then skied down into Beartrap fork. The snow in Dutch Draw was pretty good, but in Beartrap it was very sticky.

The first time I was on 9990 and Silver I cheated by using the lift at the Canyons ski resort, that was February 2(?), 2008.

Date Climbed: Jan 3, 2012


This was my 5th or 6th time to this nice little peak, but my first time in winter. We generally take the Bear Trap Fork ascent, hit Desolation Peak, Silver, unnamed 10009, Scott Hill and move along the Brighton Bowl as long as time permits. Having generous amounts of snow along this ridge is wonderful. #7 on 9-14-10 w/ JP Lewis. Bear Trap Fork and the Brighton Ridge Run to Mt. Majestic. Fall colors making splendid debut for 2010. #8 1-3-12 Solo. Hit Desolation Peak and Scott Hill, too before reversing for the r/t. Not a lot of snow for this time of year. :(
