Little Willow Canyon - Lone Peak

Views of the Wasatch Mountains and the Oquirrh Mountains from Little Willow Canyon.

Sunday January 5, 2004

Looking up Little Willow Canyon toward the granite willow formation.

The willow formation that separates Little Willow from Big Willow.
The highest point visible is actually the rocks on the right,
which are just above the meadow after Draper Ridge.
I took some pictures from the other side, on the way up to Lone Peak.

This Picture is from the page Wasatch Plane Ride - Lone Peak
Taken earlier this year, during autumn.

A view from a plane of the Willow canyons on Lone Peak.
The willow formation is in the middle right of the picture.
Big Willow Cirque is visible in the top middle.
Lone Peak Cirque is just right and above it.
The Question Mark Wall is clearly visible below and to the right of the summit wall.
Below and to the right of the Question Mark Wall,
are the rocks mentioned in the blurb above.

The Guardian climbing wall (Granite slab on the left)
The low point in the frost covered trees is the trail to Big Willow Cirque.

Looking north to Heughs Canyon in Mount Olympus.
The route to Mount Olympus summit is semi-visible, this is a sideview of it.
It follows the diagonal line (with the trees) towards the top right.

Mount Olympus Summit 9,026'. You can see the route from the saddle to the summit.
It's the chute to the left of the summit,
then turns right, then up, then up the spine to the summit.

The Hounds Tooth
Behind is Hobbs Knob on Wildcat Ridge, on the same ridge as Olympus.

The ridge between the two Deaf Smith Canyons that go up to Twin Peaks.

Looking west toward the Oquirrh Mountains.

West Mountain 9,068' and Clipper Peak 9,207' above the Kennecott Copper Mine.
Or maybe this is Markham Peak 8,702' and Freeman Peak 8,627'.
