OutdoorpartnerLots of goats  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2010


Beautiful day; did not have to worry about changing weather. Lots of goats before the lake and up on top. Took about 130 photos of goats! Surprised to see some of the waterfalls had dried up for the season. No way to slide down the "Timp glacier"; there were more rocks than snow.

TacoJockeyAspen Grove- Summer ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2010


Went up from Aspen Grove, followed the trail of ants to the summit, skied down the glacier. Camped by Emerald Lake and skied again the morning of Aug 1 so I could claim turns for July and August. The glacier was hard, bumpy, and full of rocks.

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2010


Ran up the Giant Staircase with my son Kaden today from the Timpooneke trailhead to the summit. Kaden is 12 years old...his time: 2:13:40 from trailhead to summit. Good job, way to kick Dad's trash. He says he'll be back later in the summer to beat the two hour mark.

Hiked with the Eug to the top in 3.5 hours, including plenty of breaks and idle chitchat with other hikers. Had to shoo a mountain goat off the trail near the summit, but got some sweet paparazzi shots. first time glissading on the way down - the wet ass was worth it!

montyq2good go-to hike  Sucess!
A good hike. My most memorable was from Aspen Grove trail in early spring. My buddy and kicked steps up one snowfield after another then climbed the vertical cornice with ice axes to the saddle.We made the summit then glissaded down half the mountain on the snowfields preserving a year of use on our knees.

Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2006


Did this one via Battle Creek a few years back. The Serac Club was camped at the Big Baldy saddle and I agreed to meet a friend there at about 4 am.

I got off work at 1 am, but managed to lock my keys in my car while I packed my gear in the parking lot where I worked. Worst of all, my car was running! After waiting an hour for my car to be unlocked, I managed to make it to the saddle by 5:30, where my partner was waiting. We followed a nice boot track to the top of the ridge, where almost everyone stopped. I cruised to the summit and back in a whiteout and then headed down as the skies cleared. A good day in the mountains.

Summited via Timpooneke with some scouts. There were looots of people on a Saturday with no home BYU game. But it was still great. I didn't get a chance to slide down the glacier because I needed to guide someone down the north side but I'll be back to do it, someday.

utclimberAfternoon climb  Sucess!
For a spur of the moment ascent of Timpanogos (2006), I left SLC around 1 in the afternoon, and started up the trail mid afternoon. It was interesting watching the hordes of people come down, and this unintentional strategy gave me some solitude where I only saw a few people up high. Lots of goats. Beautiful mountain.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2009


Less than two months out of ACL surgery on my left knee. Took longer than I expected, but no major problems. About 4am we came around a bend in the trail and saw a bull moose only like 10m away! We stopped and he slowly disappeared into the bushes. Also saw a few mountain goats near the summit. Lots of flowers and very green. Beautiful mountain.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2005


The most beautiful cliche in the Wasatch Range. Everyone has to do it once in their living experience in Utah Valley. It truly is majestic. I don't like hiking crowded places, and would rather share a hike and mountain with a few close friends. But my two buddies and I shared a unique September day, where we didn't see a single other hiker, the entire 12 hours we spent on Timpanogos. It felt as if we were discovering this big beauty for the first time. Incredible hike I will never forget.

punchlineGo during the week!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2009


Aspen Grove Trail mid day on Monday - about 15 cars in the lot with very little traffic on the way up. Spent the night by the hut and climbed up the next morning. Smoke from St. George fires made Monday a terrible day for any views but it cleared off nicely for Tuesday. Encountered about 60 - 70 goats - WOW!!

Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2009


If you want to combine a great hike with a unique cultural experience, go hike Timp on a beautiful Saturday in August. The Forest Service folks told us that there were at least 400 people just on the Timpooneke trail. If I had a dollar for each piece of BYU Cougar gear I saw people wearing on the trail, I'd be filthy rich. Despite the crowds, the mountain is simply majestic, and the crowds didn't seem to scare away several bull moose and an entire herd of mountain goats. We went up Timpooneke trail to the summit, then down the snowfield, past Emerald Lake, and back to Timpooneke. Great hike.
