Kings Peak - via Henry's Fork - March 15-18, 2012

Winter ends march 20, so this is could be the last chance to climb Kings this winter....

I have a trip planned to Kings Peak -via Henry's Fork March 15-18, 2012, but my companions are struggling to get the time off, as such I'm looking for one or more people to join me.

We will be leaving from Orem March 15 at 6:00 am, with the hope to be snowshoing from the winter parking Area of Henry's Fork by 10:30 am. Estimate arriving to Dollar Lake by 6:30 pm before sunset. Each person will be pulling a sled with his gear as opposed to carrying a heavy back pack, and will be on snowshoes rather than skis (skier are welcome however).

March 16, leave camp at Dollar Lake before sunrise around 6:00 am, allowing 7 hours to summit, and 5.5 hours to return to Dollar Lake, again hopefully returning to camp just before sunset.

March 17, Sleep in, eat lots, break camp around noon, and make it out as far as possible with the hope of returning to car, but with the option of setting up camp at the Alligator Lake area, or the summer trailhead area.

March 18, either be home already, or finishing the return trip. This day is really a spare incase things take longer or whatever.

Sorry for the short notice, but please reply asap.

Return to Utah
