jtrainBoth Summits  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2014


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!

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

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.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010


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!

builttospillStandard route  Sucess!


I've hiked around on Y Mountain a couple of times and went to the summit once by continuing above the Y and south. It's not that great of a mountain, but its a good workout and nice enough in the winter.

Snowshoing near the summit actually had a backcountry feel to it. Nice summit, then went over and did Maple Peak. Pictures and map of my route at http://www.willhiteweb.com/provo_hiking/y_mountain_269.htm

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2008


This was actually my second time. The first was in late winter 2008. My first attempt was with Vanman in Oct 07, but technical difficulties with another member of our party prevented my from accompanying him to the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2009


Just like everyone else, I've hoofed it up to the Y on several occasions, but never any farther. As expected the hike to the Y felt more like a death march, however, once past the Y and in Slide Canyon, it was much more enjoyable. There are some great rock formations along the way. Once I found the aspens with the Y Mountain arrow carved into the trunk, and made my way to the meadow is where I first encountered stinging nettle along the trail, and throughout the meadow. It was everywhere. I first took the trail up to the west summit, then went up to the east summit. I couldn't find a trail to lead up there, but route finding to the top of the east summit was fun and easy. Once at the top the view was great, I actually prefer the views of the east summit. I didn't see anyone once I passed the Y.

spengyFun Little Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2008


On a whim, I decided to go hiking instead of doing my calculus homework. I've been around in Slide Canyon before, but never bothered to go to the top of Y Mountain. I figured Y mountain was as good a goal as any for a 6:30 PM hike.

I started at about 6:30 PM - it took me 1.5 hours to get up and probably another hour to get down. My least favorite part of hiking into slide canyon is the hike to the Y. Terrible. All you have to look forward to is some white-washed concrete. It's steep and exposed, to boot.

I only met one guy on the trail once I got past the Y. Had the (west) summit to myself - beautiful sunset. I didn't hit up the east summit because it was getting dark and I did not have a light.
