Probably around 10 times in the winter ski touring. I tend to avoid this because of the snowmachines on the lower slopes and the trailhead road.
Climbed over PT 10420 on the way to Clayton from Guardsman Pass.
Once again a part of the "run." This time w/ JP Lewis. This must be my 8th or 9th time on this bump. Today we hit Desolation Peak and went as far as Mt. Majestic before running out of time. #10 12-27-11 Part of Brighton Bowl run from Guardsman to Twin Lakes Pass. Lotsa snow and exposed boulders. #11 1-11-14 Mit Yz. From Guardsman winter TH. Some westerly winds. Went north and bagged Guardsman Pk and Scott Hill. #12 8-2-14 Part of mini ridge run which included Clayton Peak and Guardsman Peak. Wunderbare Gesellschaft spatter. #13 1-22-16 From the west ridge leading to the sub-peak, then Tri-County Peak and Jupiter Hill in strong south winds. #14 W/ Lana from G. pass after failed attempt to reach Sundial (high water flow). #15 and #16 3-16-19 W. Yadahzoemtn. Snowshoe from gate on Guardsman road, then to Clayton Peak, back and over to Tri-County before returning to car. #17 & #18 W/ WMC like on the 16th but not to Tri-County Peak.
Climbed this with my 2.5 year old daughter on our way to Clayton. We decided since it didn't have a name, and this was her first summit, it should be named after her.
After work trail run up Tri-County Peak, Scott Hill, and Point 10420.
I hit up Jupiter, Tri County Peak and this one today as I had the morning to play with and wanted to hike at altitude. I didn't do Majestic (Clayton) this time around since I had been on the summit of it back in the 90's when I did it during ski season. I'll get back to it and pick up Scott Hill on the next trip however because it looks like a fun one.
I probably summit this peak 15 times each winter. Its just a speed bump on the way to bigger and better places! Love the wasatch!
Did once with my 1 year old. Went back for Clayton Peak with a 1 and 3 year old and climbed it on the return trip. Traversed the west side of the peak on an old trail getting to Clayton but the trail sucked and decided to just go up and over on the way back.

I have been on this summit a couple of times, but it has never been a destination for me. The last time was a combination of Majestic, after I had done the Honeycomb cliffs earlier in the day. This would be a good peak for a workout if you didn't have much time.
7/21/10- Before work with Brother Van Horn.
8/24/11- Part of a 24 mile 8300 ft day that started in Lambs Canyon.
15 times, always in conjunction with some big loop around Brighton. Starting with Silver and ending with Honeycomb Cliffs, I once bagged 10-13 10,000 footers (depending upon how you count) in just over 8 hours.
I climbed this peak several times on the Brighton Ridge Run and while climbing Clayton Peak.
