day hike/hayden peak/wait list only

Hayden Peak is the monarch of Mirror Lake Highway. It's hard to drive by and not want to stand on its rocky summit. The mornings should be cool and afternoons pleasant in August. The hike starts close to 10,000 feet and requires class 3 scrambling and exposure. The Uintas are known for loose rock and scree. We will ascend a small ledge to the summit ridge. Helmets are required. This hike is exploratory.
