Cascade Mountain is located south of Mount Timpanogos in the South Wasatch Mountains. Cascade Peak is a rugged, gorgeous mountain from every aspect. The north and west faces are the most famous. Both faces are steep, gnarly, avalanche-prone, and lined with 1,000-foot cliff bands. The north face holds Bridal Veil Falls, a world-famous area for ice climbing. The west and south faces are visible from all of Utah Valley and displays massive limestone cliffs and narrow, steep couloirs. The east face is 6,000 vertical feet of pure backcountry skiing bliss. Each face of Cascade Mountain contains serious avalanche danger, so skill and experience is necessary to summit this peak. The shortest routes to the summit of Cascade Peak are the steep couloirs on the west face. Additional routes to the summit exist on the North Ridge from Bridal Veil Falls, the East Face through Bunnell’s Fork and Big Spring Hollow, and the South Ridge from Dry Fork. Each route is long, steep and difficult. Skill and experience are recommended.
