From Big Pass  Sucess!

We climbed Tangent, then Race Benchmark. Camped nearby, then next morning walked across mud flats to Dolphin Island. Race Benchmark has better views than Tangent and is a more scenic hike.

We came in from the North. Entire route was fine for a passenger car. Last 3 miles to Big Pass are bumpy only because of bulldozer tread-tracks on road surface. This area burned extensively in summer 2019, and you’ll see (and hike across) bulldozed firebreaks as a result.

Tangent  Sucess!

Cold, cloudy, and snow on the ground. Beautiful area. Also did 6485, Deadman Knoll, and Broom Mountain.

Tangent from Big Pass  Sucess!

Nice and remote hike. Saw 3 big Gopher Snakes, but no rattlers. From the climbers log on the summit it looks like only a couple people make the hike a year.

Kind of a let down after doing Desert Peak earlier in the day, but still an enjoyable hike. Great views from on top. P2K #56/81.

Windy  Sucess!

I wanted to visit this peak and mountain range for a few years and figured January was as good of a time as any. Beautiful day once above the inversion fog. Very windy (and cold) on top.

Big Pass  Sucess!

I went to Tangent Peak on a holiday weekend. I didn’t see anyone else out there. It was a hot day but the hike is short. Great view of the northern Great Salt Lake. This is a really neat desolate area.

From Big Pass  Sucess!

Had Greg and Kadee as companions. A great day and great companions. Nice to have two vehicles out there as a breakdown was not an option. Despite the isolation, this area has a lot of beauty and the views from the summit were outstanding.
