Cold, Windy Day on Frary  Sucess!

Decided to skip skiing and go bag Frary. Even though my wife and I were bundled up the 30 degree wind chill was palpable. Wonderful views from the top and we had it all to ourselves! I love the Great Salt Lake!

Uparalleled Views  Sucess!

Hiked this wonderful peak with three of my friends. We started late, a little after 10 A.M., after driving out along the scenic if incredibly buggy causeway. The first section of the trail is phenomenal, with sweeping views of the Great Salt Lake and neat rock formations all around. Took a break to scramble up a few rocks, including a very cool little Class 3 chimney, then began the unbelievably green second portion. This part was rather tedious, but the gorgeous scenery made up for it, and the false summit is fairly quickly attained. We left the trail for the last section to the true summit, instead following the amazingly fun northern ridge of Frary. There was some optional Class 3 scrambling we took, and views really opened up along the mildly exposed ridge. The views from the summit, once the ridge was done, were simply indescribable. The Northern Wasatch dominated the E, with the Promontory Range to the N, the western desert ranges to the W, the Stansburys and Stansbury Island to the SW, and the Northern Oquirrhs to the S. The descent was less enjoyable, but I still very highly recommend this simply gorgeous little peak.

Frary  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this hike. I went with my wife a 2 daughters. It was much more scenic than I expected...and green (I guess March was a good time to go). It was pretty with nice views of the Great Salt Lake and the surrounding mountain ranges almost the entire hike. There were a lot of interesting rock formations as well. The last quarter mile before the summit was a bit muddy and slick, which made my wife and daughters a bit nervous, but they did it and were happy they made the summit.

Special little mountain  Sucess!

We left the airport, had lunch downtown then headed to Antelope Island for this hike. What a gem of a trail! Great hike, amazing views. The damage from the July 2016 fire is pretty startling, though. Lucked out with cool weather - only 82°F!

Frary Peak Trail  Sucess!

Did this as a fun little family outing on my birthday, when we were fortunate enough to have a window of warm enough weather for a snow-free summit. It offered some very unique scenery. See trip report for details.

Excellent Hike  Sucess!

Great climb. Made for a rigorous season starter. Near the summit the trail split and became confusing, but we did reach it in just over 2 hours.

Frary  Sucess!

Standard route with Bobby the boxer. A little bit of lingering snow. Lots of people on the trail in the afternoon once the sun came out.

Frary Peak Trail  Sucess!

Hiked this one solo; however, there were 3 trail runners coming down as I was hiking up and more than 75 people hiking up as I was hiking down so I was not alone. Nice temps for early March.

Otherworldly Place  Sucess!

Really like Antelope Island, this was my first visit to it with snow and first time to the top. Hauled snowshoes, but despite there being a foot plus of snow up top didn't really need them as the trail was already pretty well blazed. Departed the normal route at the radio tower for a little snow scrambling along the summit ridge, largely horizontal with a couple ~10' vertical sections.

Bike/Hike  Sucess!

I can see Frary Peak from my bedroom window. Looking at it, I got the idea to travel there under human power. So, on a lovely Saturday in August I rode my bike to the trailhead, ditched my bike for hiking boots and climbed to the summit. It's a stunning view of both the Wasatch mountains and also the Great Salt Lake. It took me 6 1/2 hours doorstep-to-doorstep, including 45 miles of biking.

Winter Hike  Sucess!

The one awesome day in the Winter this year we made the trek. It was a great hike to the top, no snow, steady wind, not a lot of people.

Antelope is an interesting place.  Sucess!

Weather in SLC sucked all memorial weekend but out on the island it was almost full sun. Nice easy trail which gets a little tougher the last 1/8 mile and the final 100 feet up is even a tad more sketchy. The amount of people we saw without any supplies whatsoever was dumbfounding. I was coming down the steep section from the summit and a guy coming up said, "looks like going down is tougher, am I almost there?" I looked at him and all he had was a 16 oz bottle of water in his had which had one sip left. I said " you better hope so if that's all you have." Fun day and a nice escape of the rain.

Wet Desert Peak  Sucess!

Overcast along the Wasatch front. The shadows of the clouds stopped at the island, which made for a wonderful sky above this unique natural feature.

Black Frary Friday  Sucess!

Summited with 2 of my brothers right at sunset. We had the warmest Thanksgiving in 70+ years (so I was told). Had to take advantage of great weather and get a peak in. The parking lot was nearly full. Very popular hike if the weather is nice. Will have to come back and take the scramble route next time.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Excellent views of the Wasatch and Oquirrh mountains. Pretty good rest day hike. Next time I'll try the scramble route. No wildlife on the trail today.

Unfortunate day for me

Unsuccessful day for me. Was trying to break in some newer approach shoes and ended up with a large blister on the back of my right heel. Luckily it didn't stop me from summit into Grand Teton the next weekend. Will definitely have to make it back to Frary this summer.
