Climbed with my friend Scott on a perfect fall day. This one was a little harder then expected, but a nice scramble
I climbed up the East Ridge with Dmitry. We watched as the clouds circled around the summit as they went over the top of Sunrise Peak from Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Joe Bullough and I bagged Sunrise Peak after climbing Storm Mtn & the BF Twins on our way to the Cottonwood Ridge, which turned out to be a day with 9,000 ft of elevation gain!
Also climbed on 7/26/03 via West Ridge from Broads Fork.
Ascended via Storm Mountain and 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. The class 3-4 ridge/chimney scramble to the summit directly up the ridge from the Sunrise-BF Twins col was great! Climbing got to class 4 as I got off route.
Been on this peak many times. It's a classic. There is still a summit log (actual) on top (old Wasatch Mountain Club aluminum mailbox.)
Nice peak, beautiful scramble :) Nice stop along my variation of the Triple Traverse - came up Broad Fork Twin Peaks from Lisa Falls in Little Cottonwood Canyon (class 4-5?), did the traverse, and descended down Broad Fork.
I have to try this peak in the winter : )
Is it just me, or are most of the Utah peak summit logs signed by the same 5 or 6 people?
Nice peak. Not quite the toughest in the Wasatch (North Thunder and the peaks east of Dromandary are tougher), but a pretty good challenge.
Since my trip to Washington got squashed I decided for a pleasant day in the Wasatch Mountains.
Great day and weather. See trip report for details.
