DentedvwEasy walk in the woods!   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2011


After a fairly grueling Lone Peak trip, this was over sooner than expected. When we reached the shoulder, I turned to my buddy and asked "is this really it?" I didn't believe it.
Unfortunately, once back to the Jeep, I left my Oregon GPS on the back bumper and drove away. Half an hour later, I returned, but it was long gone. I left my name, number, email and a plea to return it on the startup screen, but I have not gotten a message yet. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as it was well over $400. Drat.
All the way down, nearly everybody we passed asked the same question, "how much longer to the shoulder?" I gave up estimating and gave the same answer after a dozen.

This was a rough steep hike. The saddle is beautiful and the view from the top is only unique to Mt Olympus. Glad I took a lot of pictures cause I wont be going back up again

Try to hike it every year. Some of the best views of the valley and the central Wasatch.

awilk7Mt Olympus Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011
Hiked and scrambled with a friend up Mt. Olympus Trail to the south summit, beautiful summer day. Snow was clear enough to only set foot on it once on the summit itself. Few bugs even with lots of runoff and vegetation. View to the rest of the central Wasatch to the south was striking.

idpeakgirlThe first summit in my life, I think  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1987


Started on a trail not knowing where it went. Somehow got off the trail and climbed the slabs to the summit. Probably not the smartest thing, but hey, kids do dumb things all the time and survive! The challenge of this peak got me hooked on climbing rocks.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2011


Left work at noon and was back to the car before dark. Beautiful view. A little bit of snow up near the top. Nothing major, but it made me take the scrambling section more slowly.

Steep, then steeper. It was fun when it was over. Great mountain. Nice assortment of snakes and birds. Scrub oak on side hills about as thick as I've ever seen.

Nice steep grade on this 3,5 miles trail with a beautiful view over the Salt Lake City. Gorgeous weather hiking in the t-shirt! Last third of the hike in the snow up to 3 feet still warm enough for the shirt.

WORST.TRAIL.EVER. 7 miles of stair master climbing. Second time on the summit. I wonder why I did it again. Hurts the knees. Saw some tarantulas, sunset photos from the saddle were spectacular.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2008
Hiked with Jon W. Both our first ascent of Oly and maybe the last. We made summit in under 3 hrs but it was a tough stair master session. We had just gotten laid off from Fidelity Investments a few days prior. Good view of the valley! Had some trouble finding the trail back down initially but a good scramble!

#2. 7/29/15 - Solo trail run attempt. Got lost toward the top. Too damn hot.

One of my favorite hikes....! mostly because it's 2 seconds from my house! I've had a goal for 2 summers to be able to run the entire way but i haven't quite been able to do it at a good pace without stopping...2010 will be the year though!
