Drove up to the parking area described by Dean in his write up on this peak. Very enjoyable cross country hike to the summit. The last 1000 feet or so, had very nice consolidated snow to walk on. The summit PVC pipe is bashed in and the summit registry is completely soaked and destroyed. If anyone reads this and is heading up in the relative future, it sure could use a new log and container.

I parked at the gate and walked the road. I might have been able to drive farther, but I just got the suspension fixed on my car so I decided to be nice to it. I went to both Stookey and North Stookey (8845) and decended via the ridge north of Big Canyon. The way down was not quite the cake walk I had hoped for as there were 5 small cliff bands to deal with. Other than that it was a nice route.

The smashed register is still there. I couldn't get the lid off. The road leading to the gate does have some ruts, but they were easy to straddle.

You are really amazing. DeadOx one day, Stookey the next. Hopefully someday I'll run into you on a peak and get to meet you. Keep up the great works you've been doing, I'm a big fan.

Weather held out long enough for me to climb Stookey and North Stookey. Came back over to Stookey for the descent. Road was very rutted as someone had recently drove on it in the mud. High clearance vehicle is a must. The summit register was smashed (both the PVC tube and glass bottle inside) and the resultant register was completely saturated. Doing the Stookey - North Stookey- Stookey loop ended up being about 3400 feet elevation gain

Ken Jones wanted to do a good p2k with a good workout and this fit the bill. 2100' of elevation gain in a bit over a mile is a fairly decent workout. The road in seems a bit rougher than I remember but I parked at the same spot as before. We had a nice day to enjoy the views from the summit.

Great info using Dean's route. From the summit follow ridge north to get North Stookey. Should have returned by going back over the main peak but tried to traverse the north face. Bad idea and I got one of my first Utah bushwacks. Pictures and a map of the route at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah/great_basin_mountains/stookey_benchmark_016.htm

Followed Dean's route described on the main page. Fun, straight forward hike. It was crappy weather on our drive out there, but once we got to the peak the weather was perfect with blue skies.
