Great quick after work hike.
Multi peak day that included Sundance, Ben Lomand and Elephant Rock.
Crisp morning but a sweet afternoon!
Going up the NE ridge and down the West ridge to reach Balanced Rock Rd, which takes you back down past the reservoirs to the trail head, makes a nice 2 hour loop.
Good hike. A bit tougher than I thought it was going to be but still enjoyable. Had to wear microspikes on the way down.
Quite a bit of ice on the trail made it a bit interesting - thank the Lord for microspikes!
Nice summer climb!
We summitted this peak on a painfully beautiful, sunny day following a fresh dump of April powder. The trail was hard to locate, but once we found it, it's like a magic carpet whisking us to the summit. The weather started to deteriorate (higher winds, snow rolling in), but we lucked out and snuck the hike right into a weather window - best weather of the day! Partner: Terre. Dog: Stimpy.
