Winter Climb  Sucess!

In preperation for a trip to Rainier in a few months, we decided to shake the dust off of our Koflach's with a winter climb of Grandeur Peak. We encountered two large groups of elk, coyote tracks, and waist-deep snow in parts. It was an awesome trip and a pleasant beginning to the 2008 climbing season.

Frosty Morning  Sucess!

An enjoyable climb on a frosty fall morning. The terrain is fairly rugged with numerous trail options to reach the summit.

West slopes and church fork  Sucess!

I've done both routes a few times, but the west slopes plays my knees on the way down every time. I agree with the posting below: best enjoyed sub-80 degrees.

Easy hike, and great view of the valley. It's a good trail run too.

On the way home  Sucess!

My class in SLC was cancelled for the afternoon so I decided to climb this peak before heading home to Ogden.

Finally  Sucess!

I grew up looking up at these peaks... amazingly never did this hike until today. ~5 hour roundtrip from Church Fork picnic area - including a nice long break for lunch and views at the top. Very nice climb with my sons and niece.

West Ridge Route  Sucess!

Did the West Ridge route with The Steve. Made it up in about 90 minutes, with a 75 minute return. The return trip is a killer on your knees (lots of steep downhill). Consider using a car bridge to ascend West Ridge and descend on Church Fork.

trail running  Sucess!

I think this was my first mountain run. My second trip, Oct 2, 2011, was also a run from Church Fork, but this time continued from Grandeur along the ridge to Mt Aire and down to Elbow Fork, ~11 miles point to point (used a bike shuttle). It's a fun ridge for the most part, and was a beautiful day of pink bigtooth maples and yellow box elders and aspens, but the bushwhacking was a bit much for what I was (not) wearing: my legs have never been so scratched up from bushwhacking, and I've run a few other ridges in the area with unmaintained trails while dressed similarly.

Route: West Slopes  Sucess!

At least 10 people were on the summit taking in the views before I headed down via West Slopes and several people were still heading up. Had to make it a quick trip and get my taxes filed.

Crazy with the ice on top  Sucess!

This was a fun hike. We started a little late in the day and it was getting dark at the top. It was very icy near the top and was hard without crampons.

Finally!  Sucess!

Been eyeing the peak since I moved here- finally climbed it. Very easy trail with loads of flat bits and switchbacks. The top was covered in ice, which made moving without crampons tricky- prolly busted my rear 5 times coming down, but had a good time.

3 Routes  Sucess!

First time via Church Fork, then West Slopes which I prefer and then I used the Dragontail Ridge to complete the Millcreek Ridge Run recently. There is some bushwacking, but noot for extensive distances as long as you come back on the faint track before the first knob on the ridge. It is probably the most scenic route on the mountain and should clear up with more use.

Church Fork  Sucess!

This was a fun little hike. Good relaxed Day hike. Great introductory hike for those new to climbing.

West Slopes  Sucess!

A good hike for those times when you spontaneously decide in the middle of the day (or night) that you need to get your heart pounding for a few hours. Best enjoyed in sub 80 degree weather. :)

Fun hike. I can't wait to try it in the winter with snowshoes.
