First Time on this One  Sucess!

04/01/17: With Michael, Sharon, and Nancy. Love this one. Tried to get Kelsey but a sketchy part turned us around. Went back over Corn and to the summit of Lowe and down. Long day.

From Ophir Canyon  Sucess!

#1 4-19-16 With Brent. Took the drainage leading directly up the south face of the peak. Learned that a better way would have been to angle to the ridge east of the summit and head up from there. 3+43 up on good consolidated snow. I headed over to Corn Peak and then bagged Kelsey Peak before returning over Corn and dropping down the ultra steep snow to the eventual merge with the trail. Had the snow been much harder we would have needed crampons and ice ax. #2 4-1-17 No fooling! W/ Lana, Sharon & Nancy. 4+01 up, ss to the ridge and ice ax and boots the final 200 yards. Strong NE winds.

Rocky Peak  Sucess!

From Butterfield Canyon Pass, along with Butterfield Peaks, White Pine Peak, Kelsey Peak, and Lowe Peak. Long, fun day in the Oquirrhs. Fairly simple, but still very fun scramble up to the summit. This peak is aptly named.

Backcoutry ski summit  Sucess!

Climbed on my skis from Ophir Canyon. Winter road not plowed very far this year. Total was about 11 miles round trip. Great views of miles of untouched snow. Skied the south face then bushwhacked out of the canyon.

Awesome Hike  Sucess!

Climbed from Soldier Canyon. One of the best trails in the Oquirrh's I have ever been on. Lush waterfalls. The cornices overlooking Rocky Basin were massive. Started hitting snow at about 7500 feet.

5 peak loop  Sucess!

Lowe, Rocky, "Balboa", East & West Bald Mountains. What a loop. Even better might be to be dropped off in Ophir Canyon and picked up in Butterfield Canyon grabbing the Kelsey and Butterfield Peaks.
