Cecret Lake.
This is one of the most crowded areas in the Wasatch this time of year,
because of the density of wildflowers.

Looking southeast toward Devils Castle

Two climbers on the last pitch of "Black Streak" a 5.11a climb.
There are 6 pitches (Rope Lengths) on this wall.
This is the only routed rock climb on Devil's Castle.
This area has some of the densest layers of sea fossils I've ever seen.

Looking north toward the Honeycomb Cliffs, Twin Lakes Pass,
the other side of Mount Wolverine Cirque, Mount Wolverine, and Mount Tuscarora.

Looking south over Mill Canyon Peak (Left) toward Provo Peak,
Cascade Peak and Mount Timpanogos.

A telephoto of the very summit of Mount Timpanogos.

Looking south down to Pittsburg Lake.
Behind, in the far distance is Provo Peak, Cascade Peak and Mount Timpanogos.

Provo Peak (Closest to center) and Cascade Peak (Right)

The Sugarloaf as seen from the saddle between it and Devils Castle
In the distance is Mount Superior and Monte Cristo.

A telephoto of Cottonwood Ridge, the ridgeline peaks are:
Unnamed, Monte Cristo, Unnamed, Mount Superior

Another view of the same ridge looking more westward.
From here you can see all the way to Sunrise, Twin Peaks and Dromedary.
(The three tiny peaks on the far left)
The white/gray area in the lower right is the limestone "Hellgate Cliffs"
- A classic climbing area.

Looking west toward American Fork Twin Peaks

Box Elder Peak

Dozens of different shades of red, purple and orange Indian Paintbrush.
The Sugarloaf sits in the background.

The rarest color of Indian Paintbrush - Yellow.
