Council High Adventure Camps - Yesterday and Today
The most unique mountain range of them all is the High Uintah Mountains. The Uintahs are only one of two mountain ranges in the world that runs East to West. There are over six towering peaks reaching over 13,000 feet. In 1952 the renowned Mt. Everest climber, Sir Edmond Hillary, traveled to the Uintahs and utilized King’s Peak to acclimatize for his Mt. Everest climb in May 1953.
Tenzing Norgay, Edmond’s Sherpa mountaineer, accompanied Sir Edmond in 1952 to the Uintahs, spending the entire summer there. This author and his family, had the distinct privilege of meeting Sir Edmond and contracted to pack all of his equipment into the Uintahs on the south slope. Originally, Sir Edmond was going to utilize the Tetons for this experience, however due to constant recognition, he chose Utah’s beautiful remote King’s Peak and Uintah Mountain range instead.
