duke mountain from box canyon (uintas) day hike

Duke Mountain (10605 ft) is in the western Uintas, southwest of Smith and Morehouse Reservoir. We'll reach the top by hiking up Box Canyon, which is mostly trailless but has vast areas of bare, glacier-scoured rock, then doing a minor scramble up a ridge to the summit. If we're lucky, we'll see some aspen color in the upper canyon. This hike is partly exploratory and has cross-country travel with some bushwhacking.
