We made it up to the top. The last 15 minutes or so is a little slippery with all the snow it. The view up top was incredible this time of year.

apachedino4 times, three routes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2006


Climbed 4 times, twice via the standard route, once in summer once in winter. Once on the north face to the north summit and then traversed to the south and down the standard route it's a great route up top but horrible bushwacking for the first bit plus lots of rattle snakes I almost got bit by one in a stream bed, and most recently up Geurt's Ridge by far my favorite route, although it is recommended to rope up it is really not necessary except for the two rappels.

Since the trail faces West, this is one of the first summits you can hike in the Wasatch. I climb it a few times each year.

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!

mtn_pikaMt. Olympus Trail  Sucess!


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.

HighCountryWest Face 5.5-5.6  Sucess!
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!
