Over 10k and they're still pretty gnarly right now.

Maybe they thin out around 14.6k or so...

Nearly all the rock climbing venues in the Uintas are under 11k...and...get pretty darn buggy when they're in bloom...

Yeah....the mosquitos are terrible right now. I would avoid climbing in the Uintas until at least early september, just to be safe.

I hear the bug situation around the SecrEstwing Crag is OUT OF CONTROL!
People getting swarmed and literally flown away by the bugs to be devoured... Piles of bones littering the base and stuff.
I'd take Brian's advice

BWAH :)

That was advice? 14.6k does not exist in UT. But thanks for your help.

Yeah, in Utah, we bump into the firmament at around 14k. Just enough room to give some clearance for really tall guys on King's Peak.

How 'bout that Clarence King, eh? Makes sense he had more than one wife at a time...

My advice? Take the usual precautions and expect it to be buggy!
