Took the ridge from Robert's. Saw a couple of mountain goats along the way. Nice day but the smoke started to pick up
August 13, 2016 I backpacked into the Chain Lakes, and camped. Next day I backpacked to Lake Beard above Lake Atwood. August 15 I backpacked over 5 peaks, namely Trail Rider Peak (aka Ramp Peak) at 13247 ft, Roberts Peak (aka Pyramid Peak) at 13287 ft, North Emmons (aka Pinnacle Peak) at 13068 ft, South Emmons (aka Glacier Peak) at 13170 ft, and Mt Emmons at 13440 ft.
From Emmons I dropped down to Oke Doke Lake and camp above the 4th Chain Lake.
#1 9-19-13 From Swift Creek TH. Solo, single-push effort to make this summit first and add on Roberts Peak before returning to the trailhead. My route was similar to that of ZeeJay's August 11, 2009 hike. Deep blue skies, by Uinta standards light breezes and touches of fall colors made for a pleasant if not tiring day which began and ended in darkness made lighter by a full moon. #2 7-25-16 With Signe as next-to-last peak of the Kings-Emmons Ridge Run. Had to wait 10 minutes at the base of the long summit ridge to see if a thunderstorm would blow directly on us. It didn't and we were able to continue.
July-15-20010 Hiked Kings Peak, S Kings Peak, "Painter Peak", "Trail Rider Peak", "Roberts Peak", "N Emmons", Mount Emmons, "S Emmons", "Owl", Lost Benchmark, and Flattop Benchmark in one 21 hour day. Started at Henrys Fork on the north slope and ended at Dry Gulch on the south slope.
August-11-2009 Started at Swift Creek TH and took the trail to East Timothy Lake. From there, first went to North Emmons and then followed the ridge to Roberts. Descende NW, almost to the 12744 saddle, then went x-country back to East Timothy Lake and then back to the TH.
Climbed as part of the Kings-Emmons Ridge Run in August 1997.
