Mountain melon!  Sucess!

Hustled up after work and before trivia. Made good time and enjoyed a summit snack of mountain melon. Brighton is more fun to ski down than to run down, FYI.

official name??  Sucess!

who mounted the metal plaque? I've done this before the plaque appeared & I didn't know it had a name, official or not. I found someone's camera on the ridge just below high point.

Ridge Run  Sucess!

Did this as part of the Brighton Ridge Run, under a rock on the summit there were literally thousands of ladybugs, I have since experienced this on another peak, it must be where they are born or something.

Brighton Ridge Run variation from Bear Trap Fork  Sucess!

I have been to this peak many times. Today we began our hike at the Bear Trap Fork TH located below the Silver Fork Lodge and between mile markers 12 & 13. Before bagging Preston we also logged the following 10,000ers: Silver, Scott, Guardsman, 10,420', and Clayton. We had parked a shuttle car at the Brighton parking lot. The entire loop took less than 7 hours. Beautiful wild flowers all along the route. 4-21-09 Part of snowshoe extravaganza along Brighton Bowl Ridge including Millicent, Wolverine & Tuscarora, Sunset, Pioneer, 10,321, Clayton and 10,420. #? 4-20-10 Many times; this was part of snow ridge run like last April. Beautiful day except for gusting winds. #8? 12-27-11 Solo Brighton Bowl ridge run in winter conditions. The plaque is still there in all its glory. #9 9-18-15 W/Yz 3rd pk on 1st rehab hike. #10 09-02-19 W/ Lana on Brighton Ridge Run from Clayton to Patsy Marley. #11 07-14-21 W/ Lana & Brent. #12 09-11-23 W/Lana, 2nd peak in Brighton Ridge run.

Brighton Ridge Run  Sucess!

Parked at the gate on the Guardsman Pass Road. Hiked up the west ridge of 10420. Hit 10420, Clayton, Preston/10315, 10321, Pioneer Peak, and Sunset Peak. Descended to Brighton via Lake Catherine. Great snow conditions. We didn't need either snowshoes or crampons. With Anne Perry. My 15th time up here.

Preston Peak  Sucess!

Four of us hiked to Preston Peak as part of the Brighton Ridge Run. Also went to Clayton, Pioneer, Sunset, Tuscarora, Wolverine, and Millicent. This is one of the extra peaks we climbed along the way.

Coldest Camp

I've climbed this rather mundane peak several times. The most notable experience just happens to be that when I camped on the summit during a cold snap, I recorded a -23F which still remains my coldest camp ever. Even though we were camped on the summit of a peak, there was no wind. It is unusual for it to get that cold on a mountain top in the Wasatch.

Along with 3 other peaks  Sucess!

Skinned up from the base of the Crest Express lift at Brighton, to the backcountry entry point at the top of that lift. Of course the ski resort was closed for the season. Went along the pioneer ridge to the peak. It took less than 2 hours one-way. From the peak I back tracked, and continued along the ridge line bagging Preston Peak, Clayton Peak, and Peak 10-4-20. The whole trip, with breaks and everything took 5.5 hours.
