I've climbed Squaw Peak a bunch of times via a bunch of routes. I think in the last year alone it's been 6 times. I finally finished my mega project that goes up the cliffs on the south face. It took me 3 years to complete the stupid thing, but I guess it was all worth it in the end :)

Several years ago I climbed this peak via the west face starting near Rock Canyon.

Ran up with Brita---clouds obscured the views of the higher peaks which was a bummer, but an otherwise gorgeous day on top.

I've been up to the top many times via "The Pines" and by Rock Canyon. Summitted with Joe Morton and it was great. My Dad Hawk later went up and found mountain lion tracks in our footprints for over a mile---he noted that unlike us, he was alone!

I actually was just messing around in rock canyon near the water tank about 1/3 mile into the canyon and started going up a rock chute and climbed for about 30 minutes to the top of the chute. At the top of the chute there was a faint trail that seemed to go to the peak. I decided to follow that for a while. After about 600 vertical feet it disappeared and I figured that I would just bushwack to the top. It was a lot harder than it looked, but was still fun. I was pretty sick of shrub oak at the top so I decided to go down the standard route. It took about 3 hours to climb up and 1 hour to jog down.

This is such a nice hike. The first mile is right next to the stream and is gorgeous. On top there was some meadows with yellow wild flowers. I highly recommend it if you have a few hours on a summer morning.

Never got around to doing this one until now, but it's a surprisingly nice hike and (of course) has great views of the valley. Had the summit to myself for about an hour, during which I took a great nap.

I've climbed Squaw Peak over a dozen times. I've gone several times from Rock Canyon and several times from the Squaw Peak Road, which sucks but is faster. I'm currently working on a sport climbing route that goes up the south face of the mountain. So far I've got 14 completed pitches and, when completed, it will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-21 pitches. I'm also trying to keep the route under 5.11. Stay tuned. It should be finished by the end of summer 2010. Let me know if you'd like to contribute financially to the bolting process (them bolts are expensive!).

It is a beautiful, scenic hike, that took about 1 hour 45 minutes to the top from the Rock Canyon parking area. Great views at the top! It was much more pleasant than my previous trip. I did this same hike for the first time a little over a month earlier in mid April. Due to the exceptionally cool and wet Spring we've had this year, the east side (backside) leading up to Squaw Peak was covered with four to five feet of snow shortly after making the left fork. "Postholing" was a common occurrence, but it was sunny enough that despite all the snow, we felt comfortable hiking in shorts and a t-shirt. It took about three hours to make it to the top back in April.

Good hike with awesome weather conditions. Make sure you stay in the rock slide area, otherwise it's a mess of scrub oak that will tear you up pretty good.

I feel like I'm spamming the climber's log for this mountain!

My brother and I snowshoed it today. It was a lot of fun.

I thought I posted this already, but here it is March 2009 and I forgot.

I hiked Squaw Peak for the second time on November 1, 2008. It was a good way to relax and forget my troubles on a windy saturday. Weather was nice, but windy and cold at the top. There was not a significant amount of snow anywhere on the mountain at this time.

Left my car at 7 pm and made it back at 10 pm on the dot. Plenty of shade on a hot summer evening and a great view of the southern wasatch from the peak made this a very enjoyable hike.

Great conditioning hike that you can do in a few hours. Coming down the west face is faster, but scree covered.

Hiked from Rock Canyon. Took me approximately two hours from the parking lot to the summit. Probably took me an hour to get down. I spent about an hour at the top taking pictures and enjoying the 2500 ft. drop down to Rock Canyon.

Fairly fun hike. There is still a lot of snow towards the top at this time of year! You can't see it from the valley floor, but when you get up towards the top, it is there in abundance on those east-facing slopes. I was wearing some Vans tennis shoes, so my feet got a little wet. Nothing to worry about, as the weather was nice - probably 55 degrees. perfect hiking weather.

My one complaint against this route is that the 'trail' (more of a road) in Rock Canyon before the fork is composed largely of loose rocks - what a pain. It gets better once you get out of the canyon.

We were not exactly sure how much snow to expect since the west face had already melted, but we found at least four or five feet all the way up the east side. No snowshoes meant postholing every other step, which was sort of fun, but also quite tiring and the going was slow. Good hike though! Despite the snow, it was quite warm, and the views were fantastic.

I took a quick hike from the Rock Canyon trailhead to the summit via the First Left Fork "Squaw Peak Trail" route. The leaves were beautiful, but the weather was not. It was raining lightly when I started, and the rain turned to snow at about 7000 feet. Visibility at the summit was perhaps 100 feet, so I definitely didn't get a good view of the Utah Valley panorama.

TH to summit: 1h30m
Summit to base: 1h10m
