Apparently they embarrass Norwegian princes. This is probably (definitely) a better afternoon option than CrossFit, though. Much prettier than a bunch of sweaty dudes doing burpees, too.

Some friends and I did this peak in about an hour and a half...for the time commitment it was well worth it. The meadows and lakes are beautiful and the views are exquisite. I highly recommend this hike.

Ran it while a friend waited and then we hit Wolverine together. Good views of Park City. Not a remarkable peak but one to grab while out on a hike of the area.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2014


9/29/2012 Climbed with the WMC as part of a BCC super loop.
9/10/2014 Devil's Castle traverse. From just below Albion Basin I followed the nice trail up to Catherine Pass. From there I went up to Sunset and then on to Point Supreme. From Point Supreme it was a fun scramble over Devil's Castle. I followed the ridge to the saddle between Sugarloaf and Baldy before dropping back down.

leslie78My first official peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2011


Sunset peak was the first official peak I ever climbed! I had just met my now husband days before. I guess you could call this our first "date." It was pretty awesome. Our then 15, 14, 6, and 2 year old's went with us. Excellent hike, with excellent views. Looking back after the hikes I've been on since, this was a pretty easy one, still incredible though. Plus, it was cool to climb our first peaks ever together (Kanyon (6) and I)

Rocky AlpsFun, scenic little hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012

Rocky Alps

We've been up to Catherine Pass from both the Brighton and Alta sides, and I think the Brighton Lakes Trail is the more scenic way. This time we took the shorter approach from Albion Basin, and I jogged to the top while the family ate some snacks and watched the sunset from Catherine Pass. We saw the same two bull moose, along with a cow and calf, that we saw just a few days earlier from the other side, which was cool.

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2009


Hiked up to Sunset Peak, then walked the ridge to Pioneer Peak, and then back to Sunset Peak. Great views of Lake Catherine, Lake Martha, and Lake Mary, as well as Mount Tuscarora. Wind gusts of about 40 mph on the peaks. Had both summits all to myself, didn't see anyone until I was heading back down the Catherine Pass Trail.
