This is probably the easiest and is still a very scenic way to Summit Beulah, though the drive is longer from Salt Lake than the Allsop lake approach. There is far less talus to negotiate. I summited north Beulah first and there is almost no talus to cross until the very summit. The north slopes above the unnamed pothole lake are grassy and the lake itself is fabulous for a post summit dip and very scenic! Note the next lake to the north after this one is a mud pit and not nearly as pretty. This makes a nice last spot to grab water as well. From the summit of Beulah the lake to the east of North Beulah also looked clear and nice, but it is not on a convenient route to the summit though it does look worth a visit in its own right. From here I scampered down the saddle to the south and made my way up the sometimes massive boulders to the summit of Beulah with fabulous views to Lovenia and surrounding 13ers. I noticed at least 2 gulleys to the weest that could be used to scramble down below the cliff bands on Beulahs east face if you wanted to continue to the south to the Allsop peaks as there is at least 1 break in the cliff at a saddle there. The talus looked nasty though and it might be more pleasant if there is some consolidated snow to cross over. I did not end up doing this and just had a nice time drinking and swimming in the pothole lake on the way down. Great day, no cloads, over 100 degrees in SLC.
