day hike - rocky peak in the oquirrh

Rocky Peak (10278 ft) is the 6th highest mountain in the Oquirrh. We will start from Ophir Canyon and take the main drainage to the peak. There is a maintained trail only for the first 1.3 miles. The rest of the part will be off-trail and involves bushwhacking and cross-country route finding. Expect easy scrambling at the last part to the peak. If the group is interested, we can bag Lowe Peak (10,589 ft) on the way back and do a loop. Bring 10 Es and micro-spikes. Due to long driving (1-1.5 hour), expect a long day. This hike will be exploratory. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Oct 18, for the meeting place and time. Registration priority will be given to WMC members.
