Short jaunt on same day as 10,420
Climbed solo after 10,420/"Mount Venture". A steep but short slog up from Guardsman Pass rewards one with fabulous views and a neat summit with a weather station and the top of Jupiter lift just below it on either side. Surprisingly enough met a few folks on top of this obscure yet accessible peak. I took a few pics then rejoined the rest of my group, both of whom having skipped the climb, for the remainder of our massive 20-mile hike that took us from the top of Park City to the bottom and eventually saw us walking along sidewalks up to Deer Valley to finish all 20 miles. Very nice little peak, the whole hike was very beautiful, but I cannot recommend anything but the peak in good conscience due to sheer difficulty!
Quick jaunt up the south ridge from the pass. Followed the access road down to the trail after that.
Met a friend at Guardsman Pass to pick up some tables from him and figured I'd get some stellar views. I walked straight up the ridge north from Guardsman Pass and was offered great views, headed down the ridge to Jupiter and also enjoyed great views of the cliffs of Jupiter!
Used this as a quick warm up before attempting Clayton Peak
Been here at least a dozen times on the Brighton Ridge run in some form or another. #13 1-22-16 In combination with Peak 10,420 and Jupiter Hill. Very windy but still great. #14 with Lana. After 10420 twice and Clayton Peak. Snowshoed from closed gate on Guardsman on a snowy snowy year.
I always called this peak Guardsman until now. Did this one with 10,420 and Scott Hill. Good day.
12/13/2014: Along with 10,420. Beat the storm.
12/24/2014: What a way to spend the morning on Christmas Eve. WOW
12/27/2014: Three-fer again today. 1 degree when we started 16 degrees when we finished. BRRRR
Drove up guardsman pass after work to spend a little time at higher altitudes. I walked straight up the hill to the top of Tri-County Peak. It took only a few minutes. I then followed the ridge to Scott Hill and back. The cool wind was nice and the views were great. Not too bad when your car does most of the work.
Very easy hike. Wind was blowing very hard at the top.
A nice, short ski run on the way to another peak.
From guardsman, heading up to10,420 made a detour. Some fun wind drifts around the trees. Respect the boundaries bilers!
A nice after work hike for me and a seven year-old. First summint for my six month-old boy.
Climbed with the WMC as part of a BCC super loop.
1st of 6 along the ridge
2nd Time on 8/3/13 Jupiter Peak Steeplechase
3rd - 8/2/14 Jupiter Peak Steeplechase
Did it in about 10 minutes round trip from Guardsman pass. Went on to 10,420 and Clayton after that. Made all three in a little less than 90 minutes.
done several times before this day too - I didn't know it had a name. last time also on snowshoes too: 3 Apr 2011 with WMC group.
I've been up here 20 times and in every month of the year.
On the way from Scott Hill to Jupiter
At the time I hiked this one I didn't know it was at a point where 3 counties shared a boundary point
I climbed to the peak via the Guardsman Pass road from where they close it in the winter. There was a layer of ice from the pass to the peak. I really had to stomp my snowshoes to keep from sliding off the mountain. It was a fun climb.
