Thanks to IRman for adding this peak.

Superior Peak is a mass of large weathered boulders. It is usually approached going out of the Salt Lake Valley up Big Cottonwood Canyon and parking at the Mill D Trailhead parking lot. The trail take you up to Lake Blanche which is in the valley below the summit. It is a nice trail to the lake with some steep sections. From the lake the most common route works its way up a small canyon farther east of Sundial Peak and then its a scramble to the upper saddle and farther along the ridge to the summit at 11,040 ft. It is a prominent peak and allows amazing views of both Cottonwood canyons and the Resorts of Snowbird and Alta just below to the South.
