Started in Mineral Basin and headed up a bit of the Speedboat course, in preparation for the race. Headed up Sugarloaf, instead of Baldy. Very east summit and popping with wildflowers. It was awesome. Decided to go over to Devil's Castle after.
early season snowstorm closed the road up to Cecret Lake so I hiked/ snowshoed up from the base of Alta. The last section from the Baldy/ Sugarloaf saddle up the west ridge was quite unpleasant with unconsolidated snow. Good views from the top of course
This is a nice pretty quick peak. Did this with my 2 1/2 year old on my back and with my 4 year old boy and wife in tow. My 4 year old was able to make up to Cecret Lake and above pretty easily. Once we started the steeper sections of the ridge my wife was there to help him, but we all made up. Fun little climb!
Nice quick climb; Cool morning with frozen streams on the mountain. Winter is almost here.
Climbed 9 times: 8/30/15, 7/19/09, 7/10/09, 7/26/08, 7/19/08, 8/5/06, 7/8/05, 6/25/04, 6/28/03
Hiked up from Cecret Lake and hit the climbers trail between Devil's Castle and Sugarloaf. Made the summit in just over. A great mountain to hike up after work on a weekday when the parking at Cecret Lake TH is ample and you still have daylight to work with. Saw several moose during the descent.

Light snow dusting made for great views.
Climbed with CLS on a beautiful fall day from Cecret Lake. Very first peak after living at lower elevation for a while. It was great to get back into peak bagging.
Took some students up to Cecret lake, to the top of the sugarloaf ski lift, and up the hikers trail to the top. Aspens were all peaking this weekend and a light dusting of snow on a lot of the peaks made it especially pretty.
10/25/2014 - Climbed again Cecret -> Baldy -> Hiden -> AF Twins
Did it as an afternoon hike. Nice views of Albion Basin and Devils Castle! I'll have to go do Devils Castle someday.
With Mark Duffy
From Cecret Lake to Red Top then back to the tram. Almost were in a commercial filmed by helicopter set up by a fellow hiker trying to promote his business. Pretty good day with amazing views.
Super gorgeous day on the trail! Not another person in sight once Cecret was behind me. A+.
After several visits to Albion Basin and Cecret Lake with my family, this time I finally went to the top of Devil's Castle and Sugarloaf Peak with David. The views were nice, and there were bright wildflowers of every color all around.
I did this with Rocky Alps as a little side trip after Devil's Castle. Albion Basin is a very pretty area.
First step on Bullion divide
On Bullion Divide traverse. Trip report.
Meh to look at and meh to hike it, but grab it while doing Devil's Castle, and the summit view towards Timp is fine. There were golden flowers growing among the summit stones when I went.
