OverviewThese are all the 13’ers in Utah that have over 200 foot prominence. Peaks without official names are in quotations. Names were taken from benchmarks, usage in guidebooks, or from the nearest named feature (such as a lake or peak). Peaks with mountain pages and photographs are in bold.
One thing that makes Utah's 13'ers different, then say the Colorado 14'ers, is that the distances from the nearest roads are usually much greater for the Utah 13'ers. Tokewanna is actually the closest 13'er in Utah to any road, but it is still over 15 miles from the nearest road round-trip. Some of the peaks along the Kings Emmons Ridge are around 40 miles round trip from the nearest roads!
Interestingly, Kings Peak, the highest of the 13’ers in Utah is also the easiest of the peaks. Equally interesting is that the lowest of the 13’ers, East Lovenia is also the hardest of the 13’ers. All the 13’ers in Utah are from class 2 to class 4 by their easiest route. By far the vast majority are class 2+ to class 3+, and there are only a few exceptions. There are some vertical faces, but technical rock climbing is seldom done on these peaks due to the fractured nature of the rock. I know of no technical climbs that have been done on the higher vertical faces (such as the north face of Henrys Fork Peak or the north face of Wilson Peak), and this is for good reason. Plan on more scrambling routes than technical routes on the Utah 13’ers.
