Elev Gain


Starts off steep then gets has lots of mellow ups and downs once you're on top of the ridge. You can walk as far as you would like along the ridge which is why there are such varying elevation profiles online (700m-1400m). Not exposed unless you scramble up the last bit of the ridge. Be aware there are climbers below so please don't throw anything off the ridge! Beautiful 360 degree views as soon as you gain the ridge!

Getting Started

Park at the Wasootch day use area and hike up behind the picnic table - should go up immediately, do not follow the creek!
