Hey guys In my never ending quest to get away from the sheep pen, Im wondering if anyone has any beta on this area:
The area pictured is the backside of the Wasatch that is probably commonly referred to as Bountiful's portion, viewed from I 84/Morgan. My Falcon guide has some info on Francis peak, but it is accessed from bountiful. Im guessing winter access is limited but there are a bunch of FS roads going up the canyon. Its a shitty picture but I was there again today and the snow has since melted up to those rolling foothills, Im guessing 6k. Since most of those peaks top out in the low 9's I think it is very manageable, vert wise if you can get close enough. There is a lot of cool looking cirques up there along with a bunch of long consistently pitched slopes of varying degrees of steepness. So whose been up there...?
