edgeCaught in a Thunderstorm  Sucess!


Climbed West Mountain, and I may or may not have climbed Clipper Peak, Markham Peak, and Freeman Peak the same day. Amazing views in between the clouds during a thunderstorm. A bit scary, though.

lcarreauJust a home boy ..  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1973


I grew up in Tooele, with the Oquirrhs and Stansburys' at my

My most memorable experience was when I drove my Mom up to the
summit "parking lot" on my motorcycle back in the late 1970's.

Good time to go : just before the snow disappears, usually in
late June or early July in a good snow year.

Rocky Alps

Drove up just before sunset, and made the short walk to the summit from the dirt parking lot. The views of the Wasatch Front from the top are impressive.

vanman798Drove Up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2010


August 17, 2010 - Drove up and this time did the quick walk to the high point. The views from the high point take in Utah County. It's neat to see Cascade, Timp, Box Elder, Lone Peak, Twin Peaks, etc from that vantage point.

July 7, 2007 -- Drove up to the Bingham Canyon Mine overlook back in July 2007 (don't recall the day, but I think it was July 7). Not sure if that counts as actually summiting, but in the write up it does say "...is the only mountain in the Oqurrih Range that you can drive to its summit."

So the 2 summits are right next to the parking lot but signs definitely prohibited walking up the road to the highest point with the elevation of 9070 (see map). Point 9068 might be ok, I don't remember. I'll have to go back at night and walk up when the security guard isn't eating his lunch up there.
