April 6, 2014 - hike black crook peak

Black Crook Peak is the highest peak in the Sheeprock Mountains outside of Vernon Utah. Our route up Black Crook Peak will be via it's Southeast ridge. There is no trail to the summit so plan for some cross country travel, some minor bushwhacking, and class 3 scrambling along the ridge. Even though this route gets a lot of sun, and typically there is not a lot of snow accumulation on the ridge, this is still an early season ascent so microspikes or some form of studded footwear is recommended. If you are interested in joining me on this hike send me an email and we can hammer out the details then.
