Traversed Timp Oct 26, 2012 from Aspen Grove up to South Summit, over to main summit, on to Bomber and N. Timp and down the Cold Fusion Coulior. Took 12 hours 15 minutes.
Made a push for Bomber Peak on Oct 11, 2008 via the Aspen Grove Trail, but alas the strong winds once we reached the 11,080 ft saddle turned us back. Fresh snow was falling and wind loading was previlant.
So... I went back on Oct 18, 2008 and bagged the peak. There was still plenty of snow. We went up the Aspen Grove trail to the saddle, then traversed around the west aspect of the mountain heading north to Bomber Peak. On the descent we dropped down the east aspect and hooked up on to the Timpanokee trail and headed south to the intersection of the Aspen Grove and Timpanokkee trails near the saddle. At the intersection of the two trails we caught the Aspen Grove trail and back tracked down. We started hiking at noon, and returned in the dark to the parking lot at 9:30 pm, the descent was very icey in spots.
Bomber to 2nd Summit ridge hike Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2008
We camped in Timp Basin just under the north face of Timp, and went to the saddle by the usual route, then followed a trail north to Bomber Peak and back, before going to the Timp summit and then the 2nd summit and down the glacier back to camp. Saw a herd of mountain goats by Emerald Lake that let me take close-up photos.
