The ridge from South King was not a great time, took an hour 40 minutes. Made it to the summit around noon
We traversed from Kings Peak to Trail Rider before descending to the south side of Painter Basin. This route turned out to be a very aesthetic line when done from Gunsight Pass. We summited:
Kings Peak - 13,528
South Kings Peak -13,512
Painter Peak - 13,387
Trail Rider - 13,247
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.
July-7-2009 Hiked Kings Peak, S Kings Peak, "Painter Peak", and "Trail Rider Peak" in one long day from Henrys Fork.
#1 8-15-13 w/ Brent. This adventure is worth the effort. This was the northern 4 (5) day. Thanks to ZeeJay for posting her stats and pics regarding this one-day Uinta rollercoaster peak-bagging marathon. Warning: this is not for the faint of heart, the short-of-breath or the fearers of eternal boulder hopping. #2 7-25-16 With Signe on the long day making up the Kings-Emmons Ridge run. Whew!
4th 13'er in a day.
I hiked this one and Trail Rider Peak with my brother Eric on a very windy day. We were attempting Kings Peak from a southern approach but got turned back by the wind and the fact that it was taking much longer than we planned.
Long 35+ mile day running the ridge
