Did a variation of the Brighton Ridge Run with David, summiting 6 peaks (Tuscarora, Millicent, Wolverine, Patsy Marley, Honecomb Cliffs, and Evergreen) with good views of Lake Mary, Lake Martha, Lake Catherine, Twin Lakes Reservoir, and Silver Lake along the way. We were lucky to do this on a day when the smoke from fires wasn't quite so bad. See "Peakbagger's Delight" trip report for details.
Brandon R. and I decided to try to bag a few peaks at Brighton. We started in the parking lot and went past Mary, Martha, and Catherine Lakes. We then went up Catherine Pass. From there, we hiked to the summit of Tuscarora, then Millicent, Wolverine, Patsy Marley, Honeycomb Cliffs, and Evergreen. On the way down we went by Twin Lakes and Silver Lake. It was a fun a route and a great day in the mountains.
Did in combined with Wolverine and Tuscarora
Hiked up Patsy Marley from Brighton doing the Brighton Ridge Traverse, nice view of the sunrise!
Hit Pasty on the way to Twin Lakes Pass over from Wolverine (via Albion Basin + Catherine Pass). She had pretty views. Fun loop!
Went up Catherine Pass to Wolverine and hit the easy ridge to Patsy. There were a lot of flowers in bloom. It was awesome. We should have gone down to twin lakes pass and to Grizzly Gulch, but we were silly and went straight down the face. This was a terrible decision.
Ran up from Alta and did Honeycomb Cliffs, then Patsy Marley, and then over Wolverine and Tuscarora down to Catherine's Pass and back down Albion Basin to the car. It was an incredible day up there.
Started at Alta, up to Twin Lakes Pass, then up the ridge to this nice little summit.
Early morning ridge hike. Started with Flagstaff and ended with Patsy Marley. Gorgeous day.
Very nice ski run into to the Central Wasatch. Ended up being one of the best weekends ever skiing with my husband.
Great snow and great view, nice quick skin in with the groomed road.
Fun ridge run
Skinned the ridge to the summit and then dropped into one of the chutes along the ridge to Wolverine.
Fun loop after tagging Mt. Superior earlier in the day
Skinned up ridge from Grizzly lot. Nice views of the central wasatch.
9/14/2014 Mini Brighton Ridge Run. From Twin Lakes Reservoir to Mount Millicent, then to Mount Wolverine, Patsy Marley, and on to Evergreen Peak. Interesting scramble/ bushwhack off of Evergreen towards Silver Lake. Kind of sketchy.
9/29/2012 Climbed with the WMC as part of a BCC super loop.
Silver Lake to Twin Lakes Pass to PM to Wolverine, return via Lake Catherine
Climbed amid the construction via Brighton. I saw a mountain goat, fox, moose, and fawn. Beautiful hike! Climbed Honeycomb Cliffs toward Solitude afterward.
