Waypoint 1
Jacobs Ladder
 Elevation: 6890  Feature: Ridge

Waypoint 2
Enniss Peak
 Elevation: 9298  AKA: Draper Ridge
 Feature: Peak
Notes: It sits at the far western end of the Alpine Ridge, overlooking Alpine and Draper. It was named for pioneer John Enniss for his contributions to the city of Draper.
Waypoint 3
Lone Peak Cirque
 Elevation: 10340  Feature: Cirque
Notes: It sits at the bottom of a 600 foot wall of rock, and a worthy destination for a day hike.

Lone Peak
 Elevation: 11253  Feature: Peak
Notes: You have great view from Lone Peak. When I was on the south peak a few years ago, there were people on the true peak. I hollered at them to take my picture, and email it to me. They got a great shot of me with Box Elder and Timpanogos in the background.
