Personnel: Brent, Eli, and me
East Provo Peak is directly .5 miles East of Provo Peak and is often overlooked. It is a fun scramble from Provo Peak to East Provo Peak, while the hike up to Provo Peak from Squaw Peak road is a straight forward hike, yet very steep. I cruised up Provo Peak in exactly one hour and waited on my buddies to catch up and when they finally did, they decided to stop at Provo Peak and forgo the scramble over to East Provo Peak.
So I pressed on alone, while they watched from above. I made it down and up the following ridge to East Provo Peak in 30 minutes and was back to Provo Peak in one hour. I occasionally heard rocks cascading down Provo Peak and intermingled screaming (it was Brent and Eli using their time wisely on Provo Peak). We then all hurried down and back to Provo for game 7 of the World Series! Go Cardinals.
Car to Car: 4 hours.
