phattyAlmost died...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2007


I completely underestimated this hike. I had no idea what i was getting into. A friend called me up and asked me to go with her. So I just up and left with what i had on. Some levis and a black shirt. I bought a 20oz water bottle and started hiking. I made the water last to the summit, but the scorching 100 degree day was taking its toll. Half way down I talked a hiker into giving me a sip of water. By then i was severely dehydrated... I'm not sure how i made it the rest of the way, i don't remember even getting back to the car or driving to the 7-11. But I do remember how good the 3 frosty gateraids were!

Took the trail up. Place was a ghost town in the AM, but throngs of people headed up around noon as I was getting back to the TH. Saw a rattlesnake near the summit.

Went with the wife...aka Punchline. I think I need to do this peak when there is alittle snow on the ground. Good to get some vertical in for other peaks later.
Looks as if Joe owns this mountain. :^)

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


We thought we were smart to hit the trail at 7:00am! HA - virtual traffic jam at the top and HOT HOT HOT coming down. Unbelievable as it seemed there were people just heading up at 1:00pm, in the 96degree weather with no sunglasses, no hat/head protection and empty 8 oz water bottles... yikes

I enjoyed the climb, pretty at the top. Sweltering on the way down, ran out of water. Overall pretty but I've heard Phifferhorn is better.

asaking11Climbed via the West Slabs Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2009


My buddy from out of town and I started this climb at 2:30am and finished at 1:30pm. We free soloed up the massive west slab route, and then we traversed over the ridge to Mount Olympus and down the main trail. We were almost bitten by two rattlesnakes, and we saw five mountain goats. They are feakin' awesome, I have never seen one before. We decided to do this one on no sleep in the past 30 hours, and by the time we were finished we were dead tired.

Date Climbed: May 9, 2009


Checked another mountain off my list. Arrived at the trailhead at about 8:30AM and had a leisurely stroll up the mountain. Ascended via the usual "Mount Olympus Trail." There was only snow for maybe the last mile of the trail.

Not overly crowded on the way up, but on my way down there were a whole lot of people heading up.

Fun scramble at the end, very steep hike, I ran down the steep section, I don't recommend doing that, Ill probably do this peak every year.

Fmtn2008Sad Attempt to the Saddle
Date Climbed: Oct 19, 2008


This was a very sad, yet spoonish, attempt of mount olympus. did not make the summit, but atleast took a wiz on the saddle, which was fun in its own right. (the trip, not the whizz)

PellucidWombatHappy New Years!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2009


I climbed Mt Olympus with Joe and Shelley to celebrate New Years this year. I sat whimpering at the ice crux just long enough (plus my leg cramp) to miss the last ascent of the year, but I got the first of 2009 at 5 minutes past! Then I spent the night on top - which I highly recommend to anyone who loves winter climbing in the Wasatch.

PellucidWombatRe: Various ascents


You know, if you knock off a few more ascents, we should probably just name the peak after you :-)

alphasteve13 pitches of Dream scrammbling  Sucess!


Hit up the old REI garage sale then scrambled the West slab. Hot on the face in the summer, but easy approach up colouir. I did it in my sandles and used a sturdy stick for snow. (Climbing shoes on the face though) descended main trail down then shuttled with nice folks.

11/16/08 - Still an amazing hike!
11/06/10 - Hiked to the stream with Dean, then summited alone.

That was a nice workout. Hiking just before 9AM, down just after 1PM with a leisurely time on the summit. Next time I'll traverse out to Triangle and maybe Raymond.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2002


Hiked this peak with my friend Jerry on a beautiful fall day in September of 2002. Almost had to call search and rescue to get him down, but with persistence and rest he made it too. What a great view of the Salt Lake Valley from the summit!

Many accents on the trail. Geurts ridge twice, both solo. west slabs 3 times; twice solo and one solo trip was started pedaling from downtown Salt Lake. Most recently in March via the Zeus chute then up the ridge close to the north summit, all topped of with a ski decent down the north face, just east of the apollo chute. Scariest turns I've made; exposed and steep, everything had slid a day or two prior, making the upper portions quite icy and the lower portions were cinder blocks of avalanche debris. This was also done solo.
