Despite the urban trailhead, it is actually a really cool hike and mountain. 1:44 from car to summit. It was really steep!

Climbed this with a hiking group early in the morning. Another group member and I blasted up to the saddle in 2 hours and waited 40 minutes for the group to gather before we all finished the neat scramble to the summit. We chilled, soaked in the amazing views, took pics, and noted a small rattler relaxing in the shade of a small rock before starting down. A different group member and I sped from the saddle to the bottom in a little over an hour, and we passed a climber being carried down on a stretcher just before the trailhead. A solemn reminder of what can happen even to the best of us. We waited for the rest of the group to finish the very hot descent before loading up in the cars and heading out. An intense climb well worth the effort!

Climbed up via the trail. Left late in the day so most of the crowds were heading down on our way up. Saw a good sized rattler on the lower slopes. The trail was definitely steeper than I expected. A dang good workout. As soon as we scrambled to the top a storm came through forcing us to descend sooner than we would have liked to. Great views back into the Mt. Olympus Wilderness.

Free solo climbed the West Slab route in 102 degree heat. After reaching the top of Olympus I decided to downclimb the West Slabs due to the fact that I did not have a shuttle car and the trail would have spit me out several miles away from where I parked. The route was not too bad to down climb although it was a bit more difficult than the ascent. Saw a huge beehive at the base of the slabs(climbers right on the way up). All in all a great easy climb, even if it was ridiculously hot.

Took our pups with us, they made it even up the final scramble. It was strenuous going up, but once to the saddle, we were able to make good time to the summit. Beautiful sunset on the way down, as we hit the bottom of the trail, it was full dark and the view of Salt Lake City at night was stunning.

I was able to summit in a record time for me, despite the very crowded trail. It seems that Sunday has become a more popular hiking day in the last few years.

This trail always has a fun vibe, though, with a good mix of people out on the trail.

I had to do something with myself after tearing my A2 pulley. I figured it be a good time to get back to my roots of pure exploration. Packed snow on the trail with somewhat sketchy melting slabs on rock higher up. Saw a small slab avalanche on the way down.

A fun but run out route. I think we pitched it out in 8-9 leads. definitely this would be a great spring training climb for bigger alpine objectives. the decent was maybe a bit harder than the climb. I was able to rappel with a single 60m rope and was glad to have brought it.
