Cool views of Broads Fork Twins and the Wildcat Ridgeline, a good way to spend a chill Sunday.
Climbed 8 times: 6/28/15, 7/23/10, 7/17/09, 7/23/05, 9/18/04, 4/3/04, 5/17/03, 6/10/01
fine way to spend the last day of Spring. did my share of branch-breaking up and down (getting overgrown with shrubs)
6/30/2013 Climbed with the WMC via Ferguson Canyon. Traversed from Storm Mountain to Twin Peaks. As a group we had intended to continue on to do the Triple Traverse but fairly extreme heat slowed us down and wiped us out. I did the same route 5 days earlier and did in over two hours faster that day.
6/25/2013 Climbed via Ferguson Canyon and continued on to Twin Peaks. Descended Broads Fork. Awesome ridge between Storm and Twin.
Fun hike, on a perfect autumn day for it, with a crack'o'noon start. Ferguson Canyon is really nice and the scrambling on the west ridge was pretty good.
Storm Mountain = 9,524 foot Stair Master. It was harder than Olympus in my opinion. It was extremely hot. Hiked with two buddies and my wife.
Did this one twice in the same month, storm rolled in second time, not a good place to be.
06/12/06 Jan lead Kim and I and our dogs up this one. Neo was reluctant in some spots on the scramble but finally figured it out.
12/9/2006 Made it to the summit armed with a shovel, but didn't find geocache.
1/3/2007 Again made it to the summit. This time with a shovel and small crowbar, but still didn't find geocache.
6/12/2007 Made it to snow free summit with lesdubois and he chanced upon the geocache nowhere near where it should have been.
Summitted with my buddy, Lee Johnson, on this bludebird day. Lots of snow. Round trip from Ferguson Canyon TH.
Multiple times, Usually passing on the way to the twins.
This is a very nice hike with a little of everything. Climbed with Matt from Ferguson Canyon.
08/22/2008 Ferguson Canyon with J Anderson
08/16/2008 Ferguson Canyon, continued to BF Twins
#1 Fall of 2007 W/ Brent, Kim & Lana. Snow at increasing depths above 7,000'. The fall colors in the canyon contrasted with the fresh snow and the effect was magnificent. Fun scrambling for the final 200' yards of the ascent. A wonderful way to gain 4,300' in the Wasatch and enjoy the beauty of autumn. #2 9-1-09 with Brent & Dave. Via the west ridge. Went on to climb Ferguson Peak. #3 9-18-10 W/ JP Lewis & Brooke. Approach from the "saddle" and follow up to FerguUson Peak. Fall colors showing off but still in early stages. #4 2-15-11 W/ Dave via a snowy west ridge. Then to Ferguson in snowshoes. About 6 hrs to Ferguson but only 2+15 down to TH. #5 6-26-12. Solo. Via West Ridge in 40-50mph winds. 2+40 up, one hour to Ferguson Peak and call off the trek to BF Twin Peaks because of continued high winds. They were scaring me... #6 10-4-12 W/ Anne. 3+00 up, 2+05 down. Fall colors fading fast but still gorgeous. #7 9-2-14 W/ Brent. Fall colors beginning. Via west ridge. 2+57 up. IVD #8 4-21-15 Via west ridge. Saw a shaggy mountain goat up close before he lost interest in us.
An enjoyable half day hike after work. Long, steep and hot with a great reward of views into Stairs Gulch and BCC.
Came all the way from the valley, although it is mostly trail there is some nice ridge scrambling on the top, kept going to the pinnacle to the north of Broads Fork Twin which is easily seen from the valley. Could be its own peak? I don't know it is fairly prominent though and really fun to get to after getting out of the upper Ferguson Meadow. Great views of the upper deaf smith basin as well. Wonderful exposure. Lot's of loose rock on the ridge though.
Beautiful canyon and peak. Started the hike at 2pm and got cooked on the way up! On hot days, start this one early. Had total solitude once I passed the climbing walls. Really enjoyed the final scramble to the top.
On the way up to Broads Fork Twins. Really fun and great views
Joe Bullough and I bagged Storm Mtn early in the morning on our way to the Cottonwood Ridge, which turned out to be a day with 9,000 ft of elevation gain!
Gnarly Hike over rough terrain. after the second major stream crossing be sure to stay on the trail. If you're ascending some scree covered granite slabs, you're off route, go back before it's too late. We had to bushwack and then scramble down to the river. luckily, there was a tree to cross on right where we found it. Also, don't wear chacos... you'll regret it.
