Description [Suggest Change]

This proud peak in the Central Wasatch is often hiked/summitted via the west or east ridges which are pleasant summer scrambles or fairly arduous ski mountaineering objectives. On the "snow ramp", which slashes through the NW Face at about mid height, we found a fixed 6mm rope. This was probably left over by Andrew McLean during one of his bold winter ski descents. We found no signs of any other previous climbers/visitors on the NW Face. The rock quality was better than expected, but typical for the tops or summit ridges of most Wasatch mountains, loose rock may be abundant in places and rubble heaps await the climber as one tops out.
All in all, not as good of rock as say, Lone Peak (Quartzite on Dromedary typical for Big Cottonwood Canyon prevails), but certainly better than Devil's Castle!

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Broads Fork is the most obvious approach. About 3 hours to the base of the route. Tanners Gulch from the south may be the quickest access, depending on conditions. Spring conditions seem to facilitate access from both options.
