Frisco  Sucess!

Drove up to the Charcoal Kilns at the 6800' mark. From there I hiked the road to Morehouse Springs and then worked my way the remaining 2000 vertical feet up the boulder field to the summit. The scramble up the boulder field is by far the best part of this hike, you almost forget you are on a mountain marred by communication towers, DSL cables and all the other ungodly structures that litter the summit and it's slopes.

Frisco  Sucess!

Hiked to the top on a warm day. There was still snow on upper shaded areas of the mountain. The hang glider launch pad was neat and had a great view.

Climbed via 2nd gear  Sucess!

Got up just before dark, was going to camp with the kids up there but it was darn cold that evening. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah/san_francisco_mountains/frisco_peak_104.htm

Frisco Peak  Sucess!

Parked at about 6,800 ft and hiked the road. There was still quite a bit of snow left on the road. Thought the launch pad was very cool.

Cross country up  Sucess!

I know there is a road to the top but I needed some good exercise so I tackled it via cross country. I wouldn't recommend the way I went up but it worked for me. I walked the road back down and it was monotonous and made me wish I had gone back down the way I went up. I found the hang glider spot a bit unnerving. I don't know how you can "launch" yourself into the air from spots like that. The Frisco Peak benchmark is located not far from the ramp and is right in the middle of a road. Weird. Towers dominate the peak but the views from the top are great.
