Ascend an exhilarating knife edge of snow to the summit of Mount Tukuhnikivatz (12,482 ft)

From the parking area at La Sal Pass, follow a well defined but unmapped trail though meadow, brief forest, and then switchbacks up the prominent ridge just east of the summit ridge of Mt Tuk. Once on the ridge bear west (climbers left) along the ridge as it narrows. Depending on conditions the ridge could vary from an unenjoyable heap of rubble to an exposed knife edge of hard snow.

From the summit you can see everything from Fisher Towers, Arches NP and Canyonlands NP.
