UT Peak suggestions - SLC area

by Luciano136 » Fri Oct 15, 2010 5:54 pm

I once posted this question a few years ago but it disappeared with the new forum upgrade I believe.

Anyway, looking for some good peak suggestions for this time of the year. I understand there will be some snow already, which is fine. Looking for some day outings or maybe an overnighter if the peak is worth it. Probably looking to go light without rope, so class 3ish max, a very short section of easy 5th class should be ok as well. Snow ok.

I might potentially spend 4-5 days in the area.

Thanks for your suggestions :) !

Mt. Timpanogos, White Baldy, Pfeifferhorn, Broads Fork Twins, and Lone Peak would all give you a nice taste of the area.

If you have not done it the South Ridge of Superior fits your description excellently. Start right from Snowbird and very straight forward ascent and descent. If I had half day/full day in SLC, thats what I would do.

the Triple Traverse

For overnight, I would do the Alpine Ridge from Devil's Castle to Bell's Canyon or Lone Peak. Hitching a ride is super easy. I've done that a few times.

or you could try going up and down Olympus 5x's in one day...cuz it's less than 6x's.

Return to Utah
