Ascent Trip Report

I went up twice to this one, once on the 6th and again on the 11th. A friend wanted to do a "workout" hike and this one fit the bill thanks to the snow we had to deal with for most of the hike. I've got an album of pictures at Summitpost at this url:

From the View Benchmark Trailhead, it is about 5 miles roundtrip with 1200 feet of elevation gain and loss considering both ways. From the top of peak 6476, you lose almost 500 feet which you have to gain back on the way out. With a lot of snow on the north facing slope, that is where we earned our "workout". Great views looking north toward SLC and to the east. A nice little hike to combine with a hike to View Benchmark.
