A wonderful autumn day in the mountains. A late start but great lighting just before sunset. There was a good load of mud once I went off-trail and the scrambling became a little sketchy with the loose rock.
First time on this mountain. Loved it! Came up from Butler Fork.
Trail run ascent via Bowman's Fork. Made Gobbler's Knob first and half-piped up to Mount Raymond.
Always nice to get the hands dirty, so to speak, after a lot of footwork on the trail.
I really enjoyed this hike. There were a lot of wildflowers. The view from the summit is impressive in all directions. You can see SLC, as well as many of the other Wasatch peaks. There is a little scrambling to reach the top, but nothing too difficult.
Hiked Circle All Peak, Mount Raymond, and Gobblers Knob from Butler Fork with David. The aspen groves on the way up were some of the nicest I've seen, and the views at each summit were great as well (especially looking south towards Cottonwood Ridge). Mount Raymond was probably the coolest of the three (a couple easy short scrambling moves needed near the top). See "Everybody Loves Raymond" trip report for details.
Super great climb. Loved the snow bridges and the knife edge

Lovely morning hike. Enjoyed the summit views and made it home for lunch.
Went solo with a bit of snow and had a good fall workout. Not sure why this one is so tremendously popular, though it is a fine peak. The silhouette of Raymond looks like a sawblade from Mount Aire, so perhaps people just look up at this one and like the shape.
Rode the East Face before skinning up Gobbler's and out to Millcreek. One of the most beautiful days I've ever experienced in the mountains.
Snowshoed in from Butlers in BC. Clear air and blue skys above the inversion. There are quite a few back country ski tracks but hiking the ridge to the summit is awesome.
Would like to go back again.
Great summit with good friends on a beautiful fall day.
What a great day with some old friends. Glad I did this one.
Simmited via Butler Fork.
5/25/2014 Finished up the Wildcat Ridge traverse on Mount Raymond before dropping down into Butler Fork. Awesome hike from Mount Olympus to Mount Raymond.
6/9/2013 The last peak on the Wildcat Ridge Traverse from Mt. Olympus. Fantastic route with a good group of WMC hikers, lead by Walt Haas.
7/13/2012 Via the Mill B North trailhead. Descended Butler Fork and caught a ride back to my car.
5/29/2012 Via Bowman Fork
7/18/2011 Via Bowman Fork. Also climbed Gobblers Knob.
Ascended this and Gobbler's Knob on the same trip. Fun ridge scramble/hike!
Hiked with the WMC from terraces trail-head in mill creek. Great hike. We had about 30 ppl show up so we went as several groups. Our group hit Raymond and as we came down a nasty cloud came in so we skipped Gobbler's and went back down.
I hike this or Gobblers every year (tend to alternate each year) via Mill A/Butler Fork.
