From the top of the Summit chairlift, Fantasy Ridge follows a knife-edge ridgeline and leads riders to a number of steep, snaking couloirs through the Honeycomb cliffs as well as open bowls like Silver and Days Fork, and tree lined spines like Murphy's. Walking up Fantasy Ridge hikers navigate the Honeycomb cliffs, one of Solitude's most distinguished terrain features. Along the ridgeline patrol put handrails in the most gripping locations, falling off either side would not be a pleasant experience. The hike reminds me of a snow covered, mini Angel's Landing. Utah might be a conservative state but they certainly have some of the rowdiest trails in the US.
