"Fantastic hike. The summit is the smallest I've ever been on, about the size of a couple kitchen tables, complete with 600 foot cliffs on three sides. Incredible view. Long hike, took myself and my dad about 10 to 11 hours round trip." - Ecaello, Sep 3, 2016
"Started from Orson Smith trailhead, went up Cherry Canyon Logging Trail past the Outlaw Cabin and up to the peak. From the peak, we descended on Jacob's Ladder until we got to a spur trail that took us back to Cherry Canyon and back to Orson Smith." - tomsenreed, Jul 16, 2016
"Left the trail head for Jacob's Ladder at 6:15 AM in the pitch black. After passing through a meadow just east of Enniss Peak, route isn't necessarily clear. Luckily, we ran into a camp of climbers that told us to follow the cairns up toward the west ridge. That made the trek much easier. We made the summit in less than 5 hours. Amazing views at the top!" - Apcook, Sep 20, 2015
"Left from Jacob's Ladder trailhead at 7am. Long day of hiking in beautiful terrain. Reached Lone Rock and began the long slog up to the ridge. Enjoyed the views from the meadows immensely. Had a hard time keeping to a trail after that and found ourselves much too close to the wall of the cirque when we finally entered it, had to down climb to get back on the right path. Stopped for lunch before taking on the last major ascent to the final summit ridge. The last bit of scrambling to the top was pure fun, one of the best summits, if not the best summit I've ever experienced." - chilledsausage, Sep 19, 2015
"Trail run via Jacob's Ladder. Round trip in just a shade over 5 hours. Easily one of my favorite climbs in the Wasatch. The scramble from the northwest was much, much easier than it is made out to be. Obviously, the cirque is where you can split hairs when it comes to climbing grade, etc." - Hardman, Jul 26, 2013
