Hiked to both summits. Sat up there for a while to enjoy the amazing views on both sides.

jgreenerunsAfter work hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2015


It was quite hot at the beginning of the hike on our way up to the Y. We saw a Great Basin Rattlesnake just after rabbit rock. The little jerk just stayed on the trail like he owned it or something.

Despite the little rattler, we made it up in about 2 hours. After a little dinner/snack, we descended in about an hour, running from the Y to the trailhead. What a great time!

Is there still an american flag on top? Nice to do it in the winter, and easy. Not sure exactly what the date was, though.

This mountain is a steady climb, with a nice spot called Bear Flat to stop and enjoy a nice flat spot. This spot is full of voles and I was in heaven. This is the true highlight of the mountain, I could of spent days here. Oh I guess the summit had nice views too, but the lack of voles on top left much to be desired.

Date Climbed: May 10, 2014


We saw a moose. There was a beautiful moose in slide canyon. We saw a lot of people climbing to the top today. Lots of mud and snow up death draw as I affectionately call it. It's a bit of a steep guy. Kinda like the price of gas nowadays steep.
The point is that I have been up here many times and never done the true summit. So I did and I love it, and I'll be back, because saying I'll never be back would be foolish, because it just happens when you least suspect. The rhythm and Y Mountain are gonna get you.

Hiked up to the overlook/west summit last year, but I finally went back to bag the true summit. Much better views! Never want to hike back up to the Y, though. Such a slog.

Took the traditional route up slide canyon with TonyTheJet. We hit both the west and east summits. Great view from the east summit. It makes me wonder why the west summit is more popular.

TonyTheJetRe: Both Summits


Good times. Had the back side of the mountain to ourselves on a 60-degree Saturday. Can't argue with that!

Went to the west summit. I was the only person around past the Y. What a treat to have the mountain to yourself!

Jwp2025West Peak via Slide  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2012
Both times I attempted to climb both summits I found myself at the west peak with the sun already down and a urgent need to get back down. I am planning a slide canyon to peaks to rock canyon hike one of these days.

Slogged up through the snow to get to the top of this one. It was a great winter hike with new boots! Yay for new boots!

jkcookMany times  Sucess!


Climbed this many times while a student at the Y between 2002 and 2006. Good way to escape the zoo for a few hours.

runbyu1Run/Snowshoe Fun  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2010


Ran up with Danny Moody to Bear Flat. The snow got deep enough at that point we put our snowshoes on and hacked it the rest of the way up to the Summit. Saw Stan Ricks on the way up. Took some pics on top with the Flag on top of that tree---how on earth did that get there? Anyone? Had a blast crashing down the mountain in the snow.

kteichertGreat start to a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 14, 2010


Started at 7:15, expecting to be done by 1. Finished at 10:15. Much shorter than I expected, but the views of Utah Valley are incredible from the West Summit. Views of Cascade are amazing from East Summit. Beautiful sunny day and lots of fall colors. Awesome little hike.

Going up to the Y is not the best hike but after that it was pretty nice. There was a big black blob on the Y when looking up from the trail head. Going up I discovered that the entire BYU football team was up there for a photo op.

The view from the top of Y Mountain is my favorite of any of the Provo foothills. It's beautiful!
