Awesome Day  Sucess!

There was still tons of snow even in June on the southern facing standard route so it made for a long and sketchy day. Beautiful views the whole day and especially from the top. It's not advisable to do this peak without crampons and an ice axe but you can manage with microspikes if you don't mind traversing down into a steep loose gully and up steep snow to gain the southwest facing ridge to the summit. Fun day with great people in the end!

Ran up with Grant Guise from New Zealand  Sucess!

Had a fun run up with Grant. Still a decent bit of snow on the summit approach which made things interesting. We didn't see anyone else anywhere near the summit. Great views and perfect weather. Ran down quick but easy controlled in about 55 minutes.

Tried to do Willard in the same day  Sucess!

No problem getting to the top of Ben Lomand, but Willard is a whole different story. Too much altitude loss after Ben Lomand and the trying to regain ascending Willard on slippery footing with no trail. No goats today but did see a marmot.

Just a few snow crossings today  Sucess!

Started from North Fork Park. No moose, goat, or grouse sightings today. No need for crampons on these short snow crossings. The summit register notebooks are completely full. It needs new blank notebooks brought up.

From Willard Basin   Sucess!

Climbed Willard and Ben Lomond while mapping weeds. Two mountain Goats greeted us atop the peak. Great views. Went down the Ben Lomond trail to North Fork Park.

South Chute/Face  Sucess!

Spring snow climb, up the main south chute which opens up onto the south face. (edited from a previous unsuccessful attempt in January 2016)

North Ogden Divide  Sucess!

Great trip up from the North Ogden Divide with my wife, son, and James Hamilton. It's a shame dirt bikes are allowed up there as the trail is rutted and trashed in spots. Still some snow on the east face to make things fun. Saw a nice big goat up high. Great day!

Barrett Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the ridge on the left side of Barrett Canyon. Super cool 4th class scrambling above 8,100 feet. Came back down the same route. Great day with members of The Utah Climbing Club.

Ben Lomond the hard way  Sucess!

I've been wanting to go up the front face of Ben Lomond for years. I, and some friends finally did it a couple weeks ago. We started at the trailhead at the bottom of the North Ogden Canyon, ran the trail to the main ravine on the face and went straight up. Nothing very difficult, lots and lots of bowling ball sized scree that was very loose. We had to be careful to not push any down on people below. There is a small rock scramble just before the summit, but nothing difficult. Usually we run the trail from the North Ogden Divide up to the summit. this was a nice change. Weather wise it was a perfect day, sunny, and cool. A bit of a breeze on top, but not bad at all. Time to climb was about three hours, total time was a bit over five. Here's my Strava of the route we did.

Via N. Ogden Pass  Sucess!

7/18/14 - Hiked with my lovely wife. Most of the trail is scattered with small rocks which get old after 16 miles. :) She's not in a hurry to hike it again anytime soon. Still, a great day!

6/28/13 - First time from N. Ogden Pass. Had a good day. Met up with coworkers at the peak for photos.

North Ogden Divide  Sucess!

Climbed from the divide with my wife. We got a late start so we pushed hard reaching the summit in 3 hours and 13 minutes. Spent about 25 minutes on the summit, just enough time to eat a pb & j and take some pictures. Moderate temperatures and nice breeze kept things comfortable all day. Ran into a big gopher snake below the summit. Great day in the mountains!

via Cutler Basin trail  Sucess!

Lots of snow fields to cross which meant the descent was pretty fun with lots of glissades. The weather was great - 60's, sunny. The route is not too steep and has much more solitude than the Ogden Divide route. After resting for a bit on the summit, I went over to Willard and hiked that. Lots of mountain goats on Willard.

Biked and Hiked  Sucess!

I have hiked and biked up this peak from the divide, from grizzly peak trailhead, up the north face numerous times.
