Ascent Trip ReportThis was the last peak in the Wasatch over 10,000 feet that I needed, somehow I had overlooked it last year. Ironically, I took my new Tacoma up all the way to the mine rather than hiking the loose rocky trail. It was nice to see what the new ride could do and I definitely would not want to push it this hard in a more remote area, but now I know the capabilities a little better. This is a tough trail! I took the NW ridge the rest of the way, fun to learn about all the mining activity and I found the grave of a miner that died in an avalanche in January 1906! They lived up there all year back then, hardmen for sure. Great views of forest lake over on Mill Canyon peak and of Timanogas. I have a new local goal to visit all the lakes of the Wasatch now that I have depleted most of the peaks. Of course I will revisit classics via new routes, as I did with North Thunder earlier this week.
