DescriptionIf you are looking for a good day hike in the Uintas, this may be it. Allow for 2.5 - 3 hours to the summit.
Follow the approach info to the Iron Hayden Wall. From the base of the wall head right and up into a wide couloir. Hike up this couloir until it ends staying mostly on the left side and following a staircase of mostly solid rock. At the top, climb a short 4th class step on the left to get out of the couloir. Continue up a ridgeline heading for the summit (South) ridge. Follow the South ridge to the summit.
Descent: Reverse the route.
