Descended SW ridge to Anderson Pass.
1st of 5 13'ers in a day.
With Kings Peak.
March 8, 2014: 28 mile solo trip on skis. Perfect day, virtually no wind.
March 31, 2007: Started at the Henrys Fork winter parking area heading for Kings Peak. Skied to Gunsight Pass where I ditched my skis. Everyone else kept their skis on and I didn't think I could posthole all the way to Kings Peak by myself, so I opted for this peak instead. If only I had known they would ditch their skis at the base of Kings I would have gone for it. 13:40 RT
Hiked up on my to Kings Peak from gunsight pass.
Climbed from Henry's Fork Lake. Once we made the summit, it started to hail and rain. This delayed our summit attempt of Henry's Fork Peak until the next day
Climbed West Gunsight after making camp in Henrys Fork on the first day of a backpacking trip.
09/08/11 Lots of LAME rocks but it took me above 13k so thats cool
I climbed Henrys Fork Peak, West Gunsight Peak, Kings Peak, and South Kings Peak in a day from Henrys Fork Trailhead. Round trip was around 12 hours.
Least interesting peak of the four. Ok from the West Descending towards the Kings cutoff was a long tedious scree and Boulder field.
Climbed on the way to Kings Peak during a one day ascent from Henrys fork trailhead.
Climbing this peak in one long day on this date is either a testament to idiocy or proof that it can be done if you want to. Snowshoed from the winter TH. R/T time was just over 18 hours which included 45 minutes of waiting for my friend, Dave, who opted to summit Kings Peak. I had bagged Kings last winter but had never climbed Dome, so Dome had to fall. With snow and ice blanketing the south side I was able to make the steep ascent with patient switchbacking and judicious use of mini-crampons.
Almost had a misfortune with a large boulder sliding on me. Had to overcome the mental games after the slide and made it to the top. Myself, father, and brother made it to the top. Amazing views of Painter, and Henry's Fork Basin. Great weather.
July 24 - 27, 2008 I did a solo trip to the Henry's Fork basin during which I climbed five peaks over 13,000 ft in 2 days. Dome was the third of the five. My route was from Dollar Lake, via the Toilet Bowl.
6/27/09 - A long one day trip that also included summiting Kings Peak.
7/18/08 - After setting up camp in Painters Basin, we finished the day off by summiting Dome. The views of the other peaks in the area are incredible from this summit.
Awoke early and traveled from near Dollar Lake to the top in about 1:45. Very nice views from this peak! Fortress looked AWESOME. Built a new cairn on top. No register.
Anderson Pass (up) Southeast Face (down) from Henry's Fork in August 1991.
I've also been to the area around Anderson Pass (400 feet from the summit) from about every point on the compass, including Henry's Fork, West Fork Whiterocks, Yellowstone Creek, Uinta River, etc when climbing various peaks in the area. All this was done between 1987 and 2001.
