Route Climbed: Church Fork Date Climbed: May 19, 2002  Sucess!

Hiked on a very hot day. The trail is short and follows switchbacks up to the ridge. There were tons of people out hiking because the trail is very popular. Grandeur Peak can be climbed all year.

Route Climbed: Church Fork Date Climbed: 1985-88  Sucess!

Hiked many times. I have watched the sunset, fireworks in the valley on the 4th of July, and opened my mission call on this peak. Views of Mt. Olympus or mighty fine.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: January 2nd, 2005  Sucess!

Ascended Grandeur Pk w/ Joe Bullough before heading on to Church Fork Pk and the Mt Aire saddle. We experienced some very deep snow drifts that made the hiking hard on Millcreek Ridge

Route Climbed: West ridge up, Church Fork down Date Climbed: February 13, 2005  Sucess!

I felt bummed out that I missed the previous day because of weather. I put on some running shoes, gaiters, and ascended the West ridge in about 1:35. Some windblown snow probably within 300 vertical feet of the summit, and more on the East ridge heading to Church fork trail. Very slushy almost all the way down to Churchfork TH from the saddle. Ran down the canyon and back to the original TH for the West side. Very fun! 3:55 for complete traverse, with about 35 minutes of breaks.

Route Climbed: West Slopes Date Climbed: December 30, 2004  Sucess!

In order to sneak in a little more vertical for the year, I hiked up this with Joe after work. The high winds made it interesting (some mountain gusts were reported as high as 80 mph, but ours probably didn't exceed 70?), especially at one point when a rear gust carried me up the hill and I had to run with my legs for a few yards in order to keep from toppling over!

Time up: 1:20

Route Climbed: Church Fork, West slopes Date Climbed: numerous  Sucess!

Hiked, run and even skiied for 30 years...A great place, especially in order to get away from SLC's inversions.

Route Climbed: From Church Fork Date Climbed: February 2003  Sucess!

Snowshoed this in mid-morning. Chilly views of mountain mist across canyon. SLC only slightly visible from top because of cloud cover. Could see eastern ranges all snow covered. Peaceful. Followed the ridge back down to the trailhead in knee-deep fresh powder. Sweet!

Route Climbed: Church Fork and West Slopes Date Climbed: many  Sucess!

Great spring hike if it's not too crowded. Church Fork route is much nicer, west side is brutally steep in some spots.

Route Climbed: many routes Date Climbed: Many times, all seasons  Sucess!

This is a nice peak to climb, although for some reason flies love to hang around the summit in the summer. I'd say my two favorite ascents were from the northwest ridge and snowshoeing up Church Fork in the winter.

I'm kicking myself yet again since this is another peak that I'd been thinking of doing a page on for a while.
