West Ridge: 03/10/09,05/23/10
What a great hike, and so close to SLC. The views from on top are just outstanding and I really enjoyed spending a little time on the summit before heading back down. There was a group of five on the summit when I got there and many more coming up when I was heading back down.
Get an early start otherwise it will be too crowded. Easy hike at the Church Fork Route. Trying another route this weekend from the SL Valley foothills.
I could not have asked for better weather. Coolish/warmish and sunny, great day. A little muddy up top and the snow is getting slick, but views of surrounding peaks and the Salt Lake metro are fine.
Climbed it several times from the west and Church fork
Climbed from the Church Fork trail head. First time to the peak.
Climbed via Church Fork while out here visiting my son. Plenty of snow after the saddle, and the view from the top was amazing!!
Beautiful day. We drove down from Ogden for this one. Hiked with my wife and twelve year old son. There was a lot of slushy granular snow for about the last 3/4 of a mile, which made for some uncomfortable postholing (we all had shorts on), but it was worth it. Great view. Spent about 30 minutes on the summit. The warm day (about 70 or so) made the descent slushy and muddy, but it is an awesome mountain, and we had a riot. Can't wait to do it again!
Climbed many, many times but my logging will start from 2010.
Church Fork: 1/18/10, 2/4/10
Beautiful day, great views of Olympus.
Climbed from Church Fork this afternoon. Took the wrong trail down from the peak and had to bushwhack (in shorts) back to the correct trail. After getting all the crap out of my boots, had a nice run back to the car. 1 hour 45 min up, 1 hour 10 min down. Great views of Salt Lake and of the other beautiful mountains nearby!
Not a bad snowshoeing day. Some parts of the trail were pretty narrow and I occasionally got tripped up on some scrub. Once it opened up, though, snowshoes were definitely good to have.
Left the parking lot for the West Slopes at 545pm. Made it to the summit at 7:30. Arrived back at the car at 820pm. A great hike!
I enjoyed this as my first climb of the year. I got my blood flowing and found out how out of shape I'd become since last fall. Nice views of SLC.
Beautiful views of the city and a good warmup for a fun Utah weekend.
I climb it alot, Good place on the 4th for fire works.
I've hiked Grandeur a few times - 02/03/07, 11/10/07, 01/26/08 Nice peak that is close to home and an easy hike.
Easy hike. It was nice to climb and I passed alot of people who went just to the pass. Meet a couple of guys (REI employees) who came up from the West Ridge.
Jun 16, 2008 (TR Included) Climbed it from church fork, with Cousins and Brother, fun but one problem, too many dam mosquitoes and flies
May 23, 2009 Climbed from Church Fork again this time only with brothers, More snow this time, less mosquitoes and less heat! (more dogs though!)
Climbed from Church fork....awesome hike
