Mount Raymond
Wasatch Mountains
Millcreek Canyon
to Big Cottonwood Canyon

We went from Alexander Basin in Millcreek Canyon, over Gobbler's Knob 10,246, to Mount Raymond 10,241' and down Mill B North Fork which took us to the S Curve in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

We dropped off a car by the S-Curve and then drove Ruojia's car into Millcreek Canyon. A little over eight miles up Millcreek Canyon is the Alexander Basin turnout. This trail is the fastest way to Gobbler's Knob. It only took us about 1:45 to get to the top, and we stopped for 15 minutes along the way. After Gobbler's Knob we hiked down west, crossed Baker Pass and proceeded up to Mount Raymond.
Near the top of Raymond is some exposed scrambling. If you fall off of this ridge, tell God that Darwin sent ya.

We took the route outlined in red.

Here are our hiking times:
Started at Alexander Basin 3:45 pm 1.5 hike
Gobbler's Knob Summit 5:15 1 rest
Left for Mount Raymond 6:15 1.25 hike
Mount Raymond Summit 7:30 1.5 rest
Left for Mill B Trailhead 9:00 2.25 hike
Mill B Trailhead - S Curve 11:15 pm 7.5 total 5 hours hiking
