Climbed from Church Fork  Sucess!

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!

Church Fork  Sucess!

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.

Good views, good times!  Sucess!

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.

Church Fork

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.

Church Fork  Sucess!

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!)

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.

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.
