Hike into the Cirque of the Towers. it is about a 6 hr hike into camp passing many lakes and streams along the way. (10 mi, 6 km)
We will climb peaks such as Pingora, Wolf’s head, Overhanging tower, and Shark’s nose depending on the weather and individual desires! Lots of great granite peaks to keep us entertained! The fishing is also really good, and yoga in the wildflowers is fun too!
Hike out (3.5-4.5hr), and drive back to Salt Lake City.

"I remember one time when Todd and I were climbing Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis. I tested a rock by pulling down on it. When I stepped on the rock from a different angle, however, the entire formation came out and I was airborne. My fall wasn't long because the rope had been taut. All I remember saying was 'Well, that's interesting.' Todd said nothing, except later he said, 'That's what a guide and a rope are for.' It was all in a day's work for him. When I think about it, I guess I owe my life to him."
