Description 

Freedom Peak is a little-known peak in the southern Wasatch, between Cascade Peak and Provo Peak. From Provo and Orem, the peak is framed by Rock Canyon.

The Summitpost page has more info and pics.

Getting There 

The most common approach (and the approach for the hiking route and the north face) is via Dry Fork. To get to Dry Fork, you've got two options: The first (and easiest) is to take the Squaw Peak road from Provo Canyon to Rock Canyon Campground. (This road is paved for 4.6 miles and unpaved for 5 miles). Keep driving past the campground for .5 mile and park when you see an obvious trail coming in from the left. There is a small sign there, too.

The second way: Hike up Rock Canyon for 3 miles to Rock Canyon Campground. Go past the campground to the Squaw Peak Road. Turn right on the road and walk for half a mile until you see the above-mentioned trail coming in from the left.

Regular North Face Route 3rd 1- 1 I 1 M 1a Mod. Snow  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Freedom Peak
This is a fun, easy snow route on the north face of Freedom Peak. Head up the snow slopes for several hundred feet to the obvious right-slanting couloir/gully. Follow this until it ends at the ridge and follow the ridge to the top of the peak. There are a couple 3rd class sections near the summit, but they are short and very easy....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
