About Lone Peak Cirque:

Alpine cirque located high in the Wasatch mountains, with Lone Peak at 11,253'. The approach is long but well worth it. Best times to visit the cirque is mid-June to August, depending on snowpack. Once the snow melts, you gotta pack all your water in. Many local climbers who frequent the area stash gear, water, ropes, and other stuff up in the cirque so they only have to bring water and personal stuff for day trips (don't worry, they hide it well).
Nearest town or city: salt lake city
Directions: Approach from Alpine or Draper. Either way you're in for a haul. Traditionally, the alpine approach has been the preferred way. However, you may want to check out a new route up Cherry Canyon, which is slightly longer but far less steep and loose. Check out for information on the new route. For the traditinal approaches, refer to Rock Climbing Utah's Wasatch Range by the Ruckmans for the full lowdown.
