A hike, mostly on jeep roads, over five easy peaks
Kevin and the slickrock north face of San Rafael Knob, the highest point in the San Rafael Swell.
Kevin on the easy but exposed traverse on the north side of San Rafael Knob. This wouldn't be cool with snow.
Kevin on the upper east face of San Rafael Knob.
Kevin climbing up the final gully on the east side of San Rafael Knob.
View west from the top of San Rafael Knob.
Kevin traversing back across the exposed slabs on the north face. We took a slightly higher line this time and it felt a little more awkward.

I think this interesting peak is UN 7,620. This picture was taken from the summit of UN 7,622 looking to the southeast. I'd love to explore this peak in the future to see if there is a reasonable route to the summit.
UN 7,380 turned out to be a nice slickrock peak!
Kevin descending the northeast slickrock slopes of UN 7,380. UN 7,300 can be seen on the left side of the photo - it looks impressive from here but its a quick, easy, boring jaunt from exit 116 on I-70.
Kevin and I thought that a gnarly tower was the summit of UN 7,672. We scrambled partway up it and found a geocache! Luckily, this wasn't actually UN 7,672.
Funky tower that we feared may be the summit of UN 7,672... luckily it wasn't!
Kevin downclimbing from the summit of soft-ranked UN 7,672. It looked difficult from afar but ended up being 3rd class.
