I started straight for summit, first mile almost 1200 ft elevation gain, rest of way was easy to get to summit of Sundance Mountain.
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.
