Getting it done on Lone Peak
Lone Peak near Salt Lake City is just enough of a haul to get there that it limits the number of travelers. Steep granite walls beacon to the climber and hiker alike as the alpine setting with the city backdrop of the Salt Lake and Utah Valleys is a unique experience.
I was over at Summitpost.org and spotted a very well done trip report with some top notch photos like the one above.
This peak is worth the trip whether you are hiking to the summit or climbing its steep walls and despite being within view of a metro area like Salt Lake I've found that it still feels a world apart when you're up there.
