day hike - spread eagle peak via naturalist basin in the uintas - August 28, 2021

We plan to bag Spread Eagle Peak (12,540 ft) via Naturalist Basin in the Uintas, weather, conditions and situation permitting. Those who prefer a shorter hike may turn around at Jordan Lake (6.5 miles, 765 ft gain). From Jordan Lake to the peak, the distance is 2.8 miles with 2000 ft elevation gain. I have hiked to Shaler Peak (above Jordan Lake) but not to the peak. There is a trail to Shaler Lake. Then, there is a game trail until the very last part to the peak. The last part will involve class 2+ scrambles. Exploratory. Please bring 10 Es. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Aug 27, for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info. Limit 8. COVID-19 protocols will apply.
