weeds19Final UT COHP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2004


This was the final UT COHP for me and my wife. It's a great peak that we could see from our bedroom window. A fitting end to a long adventure!

I car camped at the trailhead in Willard Basin and then climbed Willard Pk the next morning. I saw a nice group of mountain goats near the summit.

Nice hike but I hated the road in from Mantua. Glad I did it on a weekday with very little traffic to deal with. If you drive the road to Willard Basin, you'll understand what I'm talking about.

#1 7-22-05 On a hot summer day, which we had, it was a long exercise in determination. Several snow fields made glissading on the return trip fun. Don't follow the obvious trail to the north and west of Willard Peak or you will add needless time and distance - we did! Instead angle northwest up the ridge line when it looks appropriate and route find to the broad lumpy top which doubles as a summit. Ben Lomond is much more picturesque than Willard. It took us 8+30 roundtrip. Was with my son, Kimball. #2 8-30-14 Solo, after hitting B.L. and taking in the subpeak north where trucks park. Windy the entire day but cool. Many, many mountain goats down below the trail west of the summit block. IVD

This is an easy hike from Willard Basin. We didn't get to the real trailhead because there was still a lot of snow on the ground and the road was muddy. It was still a nice hike along the ridge to the top.

I biked up from where the road starts getting rough from Mantua. It was hot, and a lot of Jeeps were on the road kicking up enough dust that I needed windshield wipers on my glasses. Nerd.

A spring is at the turn in the road where it switches back to head up to Inspiration point: this is where I left the bike and hiked up the relatively short trail to Willard Peak. The crack on the summit is B I G. I accidentally went too far to the South and ended up acending the southern ridge, which was class 3 in spots and 4 in one sphincter puckering moment (definitely not the tourist trail here). It was exceedingly hot at the summit, so I spent little time there. The North ridge was a piece of cake to decend. I lost a bike tube on the way down because of a #@!ing 4" long wood screw puncture. Lame-ola.

My nephew and I combined this with Ben Lomond in one long, hot day. About 20 miles that day. We came up from North Fork.

Took an early Saturday morning to run to Willard and continue the jog over to Ben Lomond. These are easy and quick peaks to grab. Had an interesting conversation with a hitch hiker I picked up on I-15. Way to religious for me but had a great outlook on life.

Climbed in 1998 via Skyline Trail with Ben Lomond...a marathon grind! Re-climbed via the much easier Willard Basin route thanks to a friend with a high-clearance vehicle.
