george h hansen peak, keg mountain, drum mountain hike

I'm planning a trip to climb George H. Hansen, Keg, and Drum peaks in the western desert area. My plan is to meet at the intersection of US 6 and UT 174 about 10 miles east of Delta around 11 AM on Saturday. We will drive to Keg and climb it that afternoon. Keg is a relatively easy climb of 3 miles roundtrip and 1,200' of gain. After that, we will drive to the George Hansen trailhead and car camp. Sunday we will we attempt Hansen, which is a tough desert bushwhack. Hansen will be 10 miles roundtrip with 4,200' of gain. Return to SLC on Sunday evening. I am planning on climbing Drum Mountain on Monday if you're interested in that. Drum is a relatively easy climb of 3 miles roundtrip and 1,800' of gain. The Summitpost links for these mountains are attached.
