Took ropes, didn't use them. Bolts everywhere on slab. Also, couloir was easy with just approach shoes. Long summit ridge to true summit, then down the rugged trail and found new connector trail that traversed back to car at Bonneville trailhead in neighborhood. Saw a gopher snake. Fun times.

Hiking up Mount Olympus is one of the coolest things I've ever done. Reaching the summit was exhilarating; I've never felt a rush of emotions quite like I did up there.

It was a gorgeous day to hike, and even though I got a late start (11:00 am) I made good time both ways. It's a grueling hike, so steep on Blister Hill that it's a slog up and a knee-punishing trek back down. There wasn't much snow down low, but it was packed snow all the way to the summit scramble once I hit the switchbacks. The scramble was wet with snow melt, dry in places, and snowy in places.

I was worried about the summit scramble, as I've never done anything like that before. And partway up, I got scared; there were a couple of bits I found hairy. But I kept my head, assessed the situation, and decided that I wasn't in danger -- I was just psyching myself out. Not quite sure how I was going to get down what I was going up, but confident I'd figure it out, I kept going. And as it turned out, it was much easier going down.

Up top, I managed to put my foot through what appeared to be packed snow and in between two boulders, but I had my poles out and was able to keep it from going in too deep. A good lesson for next time!

This was my highest solo summit, first 9,000-foot peak, and first YDS Class 3 hike. The view from the top is the best view I've ever had of the Salt Lake valley, and after nine years living here, looking up at this mountain and assuming it wasn't something ordinary folks climbed, driving around the valley will never be the same -- I'll always remember standing on top of it.

Nice approach and fun climb, traversed below the ridge then up a chute to the top. Down climbed alittle then rapped a small tree to the saddle between the N and S summits. Then up a chute to the main summit, which had a nice Mountain Goat on it's north face. Hiked down the trail (I think the climb would be easier then hiking up the trail) to my bike, to get back to the car. Cool mountain, to bad the city is so close. Another one bagged with my wife.

No need for the laundry list.

Last climb was in winter. Despite the recent snowfall, the trail was trodden down and frozen over. Ran up to the saddle overlooking Heughs Canyon, donned gaiters, and made the short scramble over snow (surprisingly, no one had made the true summit since the storm)to the summit.

Still haven't made the north summit via the West Slabs. If anyone is interested, feel free to PM me.

If you trail run down, I highly suggest not falling. On the plus side, if you DO fall, the blood dripping down your leg will look really super cool, and everyone will move out of your way so you can keep running uninterrupted! (Or perhaps it's because they're afraid you have a highly communicable disease...? Whichever.) My only regret from this day is not hula hooping at the summit. Learn from my mistakes, friends!

Can You Say Up Up and Up. This hike has a lot of elevation in a short time, but it is very manageable, the final scramble to the top was a lot of fun, a lot more intimidating than it actually is. The views are gorgeous! Totally worth the climb as Miley said.

Climbed it with a co-worker today. It was hot for early June--95-96 degrees! Had a great time, and made it up in just over 2 hours. We saw a rattlesnake on the way up.

Going down I always seem to take the wrong route and have to scramble a bit more than necessary, so if you aren't a regular on this mountain, be sure to kind of take note of the route you use to get up to the summit. It will save you from some sketchy areas getting back down to the trail.

We got up early this morning and started before the sun came up. The last section from the saddle to the top was my favorite part. Going down to the bottom sucks, I only fell once. There were tons of flies at the saddle area today.

I had 4 hours to spare so I hiked the west face of Mount Olympus. I didn't follow any specific trail which made the ascent pretty fun.

The hike had amazing views and some scrambling areas about half way up. I didn't quite make the summit as I ran out of time but if I go back to Salt Lake, I'll definitely hit it again if I have time.
