4/27/2013 Climbed the CFC to North Timp with the WMC.
4/23/2013 Climbed North Timp via the Cold Fusion Couloir with Moogie737. Great climb, great day, and great cornices on the ridge from the false summit to the North summit of Timp.

Last year (2010) with the WMC. It was fun but just a little to straight forward

I've had this route in my sights for a long time now. It turned out to be the perfect day and I only almost turned back a couple times. :) The 5 mile slog back to the car was much more palatable having successfully summited, and the glissade down was epic! The lower 1/3 of the couloir was especially fun on a Swiss Bob.

This might be the best spring climb in the Wasatch. Views, steep snow, incredible summits, and an epic glissade. CLASSIC!

with vanman798. Tough route, not just because of the 5-mile approach! Especially with such an early start that I didn't sleep a wink the night before, and carrying the extra weight of skis for the descent, which was worth the effort. We had perfect snow conditions: hard on the way up, and for the descent, a bit choppy but very edgeable at the top, creamy corn in the middle, and near-slush only at the very bottom. The snow was patchy near the top of the couloir so I had to downclimb a bit before putting on skis, but my first several turns were in very narrow bands of 45ยบ snow between bare talus. North Timp is a beautiful and awesome mountain; I loved the summit, and this route deserves its status as the trendy thing to do this spring. I had a great time.

I'd been wanting to do this one for awhile, so when I wasn't able to go on a purposed climb May 30, I definately jumped on the chance to do it May 31, 2008. Sean Peckham and I reached the base of the couloir before sunrise at 5:30 am, and had nice hard snow, and clear weather, all the way to the peak. Signed the log book, on the peak, under Grizz (mtn_runr) and Lee (hence the title of this log "Following in mtn runr's tracks!")

After hearing so much about this thing I just had to do it. My buddy, Lee, and I left the Mutual Dell TH at 6:40 with the caretakers St. Bernard puppy in tow (she would not be dissuaded.) We opted to leave the snowshoes, helmets and yak trax behind and had a great (and safe) climb. The puppy followed along until the couloir steepened, then crawled off to the side and whined. When we returned three hours later she was still there! Her owner, the campground host, met us part way up the Bear Canyon trail for a happy reunion. I have to agree with Michael that this is one spectacular climb! Five stars.

#1 4-29-08 At 10:25 Dave, Brent, Lana & I stood atop the north summit of Timp, the Cold Fusion Couloir ultimate goal. What a terrific experience. We left the Mutual Dell TH at 4:30, arrived at the base of the couloir 2+17 later. If you like long and if you like steep, you'll love this trek. Snowshoes, crampons, ice ax are mandatory, and for the Bear Canyon trail take Stabilicers, YakTrax or microspikes. Have fun - we did! #2 5-6-08 Christine, Lana and I did the climb in near perfect snow conditions. I will attempt to write a trip report. At the risk of being redundant I will state once more that this trip is an awesome climb. #3 5-09-09 with WMC. Fab! #4 & #5 April 2010 two more successful trips to the North Timp summit, the second on the 17th with the WMC; everyone made the summit. #6 5-7-11 W/ WMC 9-member team. Record snow year, recent slide in couloir, ferocious winds above 9,000'. Two skiers, Christine and Bob, hauled their skis to the summit and shooshed the CFC. #7 4-7-12 for prep and 4-28-12 with WMC. On the 28th no snowshoes necessary, crampons from the couloir base and a glorious day with 4 others on the North Timp summit. Nine hours r/t. #8 & #9 4/23 and 4/27/13 w/ Sam Grant & WMC respectively. Some deep postholing in sections of the couloir & winds on top. #10 4-17-14 Check-out climb w/ Sam G. Ideal snow. Aber IVD einmal am Tag jeden Tag den ganzen Tag!
