Mt. Peale is the highest peak in the LaSal Mountains in southeastern Utah. At 12,721 feet it is also the highest peak in the state outside of the Uinta Mountains. A good dirt road leads to LaSal Pass at just over 10,000 feet making the standard climb relatively short. The ascent is via a trail at first that leads to a narrow, rocky gully. Ascend this gully, which holds snow well into summer, and walk the easy ridgeline to the summit. Outstanding views.
