Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2004


I could also have titled this "Don't hike when its 100 degrees outside." Went through my 3 liters of water on the way up. Luckily there was a group at the summit that gave me plenty of water for the way down. Overall a great hike just outside of the city!

Climbed with Susan in April 2005 and June 2006 -- very hot and steep. Although the majority of the trail is not very scenic as compared to other Wasatch climbs, the fun scramble towards the top and the summit views make this climb worth the effort. Looking forward to climbing this mountain in the winter.

Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2005


Can a climb go on forever? That's what we were thinking after about 15 pitches of 5.6. This is a great beginner's alpine climb. It is nice and laid back and had good pro all the way up. We ended up climbing huge full rope pitches on a 70 meter rope. This would be an easy route to free solo, but I don't suggest it. Best to descend the way you came up, we tried to hike off the backside and ended up on a nightmarish bushwhack late into the night. Amazing views all the way up make up for the less challenging climbing that is required.

July last year was my trip up Olympus, it took my legs a little by surprise. Very beautiful hike, I heard a few snakes run off about 15 min after that first little creek. I have done the hike several times after, I hope to do it this week :)

A great run after work. I know a man who has summitted Olympus at least once in each consecutive MONTH for over ten years!

Summited this baby several times back when I was a Runnin' Redskin at the U of U in the early 1960s.

Date Climbed: Feb 26, 2006


I finally got my lazy butt up to Mount Olympus today. My new Yaktrax worked great (on the way up), and I had the summit to myself. I scoped out some of the tricky looking Wildcat Ridge- very rugged! A family of goats came to see me trying to get down the snowy trail from the summit...maybe it was the sound of the metal on the Yaktrax?

First February ascent of Olympus for me. Others in May-November.

The snow was great climbing up. The trail was slick coming down. Crampons or some kind of traction on our boots would have been very helpful.

4/2/2011 - Windy and warm. Snow conditions were completely different from last week. Climbed with Brian.

3/26/2011 - Snow climb with Ammon and Brian.

4/28/2007 - Nice little half day outing with Ammon, Kurt and Rob.

12/9/06 - Failed attempt. We stopped a few hundred feet from the top due to poor visibility and a heavy snow storm.

Summer 2004 - Great hike and a terrific view of the valley. Start early and bring plenty of water. Also, watch out for rattlesnakes around the bottom. I about stepped on two on the way down.

This was my first mountain in the Wasatch and I loved the last scramble to the top, exposure is what makes it fun

-Climbed 2/20/06, snow was nice, but no summit views because of a cloud, I highly recommend it in winter.

Foggy, drizzly day. Couldn't see the valley from summit. Maybe next time.

Did this hike with Joe Bullough just to get out during bad weather. I had to slow down as I hadn't worn my mountaineering boots all fall, but we still made the summit in 2:40. We encountered the worst climbing conditions we've yet experienced on this route, with most of the class 3 portion covered in verglass, which made for a fun/interesting climb w/o crampons or an ice axe!

First long multi-pitch climb. It took us all day I know that, it was 12 pitches. I'm guessing it was between 1,500 and 2,000 feet. It was not that steep, pretty easy climbing but just really long. We were both pretty worn out by the time we got to the top. We headed back down and ended up bush wacking the whole way back, it really sucked. Then had to walk about a mile through the streets back to the car.

My son and I started hiking at 9:00 am and reached the stream crossing an hour later. Above this point all the Maples were vivid shades of red, orange, and yellow. The Oak was still green and fully leafed out. This as most always is an extremely hot hike when the sun is out and today was no exception. We arrived at the saddle shortly before noon and looked around and down into Heughs Canyon. We took our time and scrambled up to the summit. About halfway there I stopped for a few minutes and had some water and something to eat. My son lost the steep trail thru the rocks and went too far west and up an exposed rocky spur ridge to the summit. My son, now 26 had not done this hike for several years. When he was in ninth grade, he and two friends bicycled to the trailhead, and climbed the 4000' to the summit. He didn't remember the trail being so steep. Today we spent about an hour on the summit and partially climbed down the East side toward Wildcat Ridge looking for a way to Triangle Peak for a future climb. All in all a great hike. We made the car a little after 3:00 so my son could be to work by 4:00.
