cancelled due to weather george hansen peak - 2 day car camp - exploratory hike - April 30, 2010

2 Day Car Camp to the VERY REMOTE Fish Springs Range in Western Juab County. George Hansen Peak is the highpoint (8523') of the very dry Fish Springs Range. The hike is listed as being one of the hardest in Utah. There is no trail to the summit, plenty of loose rock, exposure, Class 3 scrambling, and even a section or two of Class 4. We will carpool on a Friday evening to the range, car camp, and climb the peak on Saturday. 4WD, high clearance vehicles are required. You must also be in very good shape with scrambling experience. This range is very remote with the closest gas station approximately 75 miles away. If time permits, we will also explore the Fish Springs Wildlife Refuge. Limit of 9 hikers
