day hike lamotte peak - July 12, 2009
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.Ascend 12,720 foot Lamotte Peak, the highest peak in the western Uintas. It is about 10-11 miles RT with a 4000' elevation gain. On the way up, we will follow a trail for 4.2 miles and then ascend a couloir on the west side that leads to the summit. On the way back we will follow the northwest ridge and then bushwhack almost back to the start. Participants must be comfortable with bushwhacking, high altitude, and 400' of loose dirt/rock. But, there is no exposure. Expect an early start. Carpool from SLC to the Christmas Meadows trailhead off of the Mirror Lake Highway. Drive time is not quite 2 hours 1 way. Email Judy to register.
