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.
Also climbed on 5/17/03 and 4/03/04.
After summitting in less than 2 hrs from the TH, I continued on along the full Robinson Ridge, then continued on to do Broads Fork Twins, Sunrise Pk, and Mt Dromedary before descending via Lake Blanche. A storm front was moving in, and we encountered steady 20-30mph winds with 40-50mph gusts. Overall, Joe and I gained nearly 8,000 ft that day in about 10 hrs RT
1st time: Solo at age 15. Rode the bus from West Valley City to the mouth of Big Cottonwood, hiked up and camped in the snow at 8000 feet. Summitted the next morning.
2nd time: Winter ascent. Completed the rugged West Ridge because Ferguson had too much powder snow.
Nice fun hike. The trail was a little rough, but the views were great. It was a nice suprise to find a summit register on top inside a Geocache
