day hike lamotte peak

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.
