Ascent Trip Report

I had not planned to hike this peak on my trip here, but I had a day open and nothing to do, so I added this peak into my itinerary.

I followed the usual route described in my "High in Utah" guidebook. It's a trailhike all the way. I did not have any maps, but was able to get to the top without any trouble. I was the only person on the trails, having seen no one for the whole ascent. I stayed a few minutes on top, admiring the views.

Then I started down. I got down a couple hundred feet, mainly watching the trail in front of me, then heard some women shrieking... they were hiking topless, then frantically put back on their shirts when they saw me. I suppose they weren't expecting anyone on the hike either. I told them I was fine if they wanted to hike topless. But they were intent to cover up as fast as possible. Reminded me of my college days.

The hike back to my car went well with no issues.
