bighornhunterRoute Climbed: Timpooneke Trail  Sucess!


I climb Timp. when I was only 11 or 12 years old. I can't remember much about the hike other than I thought it was a long hike. I hiked it with my friend and his uncle. We used the Timpooneke Trail to hike the mountain.

This spur-of-the-moment hike (decided to to it when my rommmate and I were bored at a latenight pizza party) is what got me hooked on hiking and climbing.

Hiked it again with my brothers and Dad on 7/31/10. See "Best Utah Hike" trip report for details.

With a name like "Everest Ridge" and a crux named "The Step" we just had to visit this route. We were underwhelmed. After gaining the summit ridge by a direct line my parner queried, "What Step?" We were back to the car in under 10 hours.

This is one of the best hikes in the state. It's got a little bit of everything.

It's well worth hiking up this very accessible mountain, and you can probably see the homes of 80% of Utahns from the top. Hiked right through a herd of 20-30 mountain goats.

Hiked partway up and bivied on the Baldy Sadle over night to allow for a quick acent the next day while the snow was still icey. Made up the the Step no problem--we decided the climb was safe enough without a belay. This is a beautiful climb and would do it again in a heart beat.

A beautiful hike. Hiked steadily through the late morning and early afternoon, then enjoyed a windy lunch at the "saddle" to push on to the top. Great views of Utah and Salt Lake counties from the summit.

On the negative side, the trail was very crowded, and I noticed a lot of people uneducated in outdoor knowledge - unburied (or carried out) feces and toilet paper, water consumed untreated from streams and ponds trailside, shortcutting, loud talking, etc.

I was able to complete the route twice, both times it was in Feb or Mar? We went around the base of the rock butress, we used no ropes, The Glissade down was the best part of the trip... Jim Younkin

We camped overnight inside the Emerald Lake shelter and found out that if it is windy you won't get to sleep because it sounds like a freight train in there. Summit was very cold with high wind gusts. I love it!

rockhop23Route Climbed: Both Aspen Grove and Timpooneke Date Climbed: April 19, 2003  Sucess!


I've summited this mountain at least 30 times given the fact that I was a back country ranger for the Uinta NF in my younger years. Still my sentimental favorite.

backpacked to Emerald Lake and, amazingly, spent a beautiful summer afternoon, night, and morning there alone-- summited in afternoon and descended via "glacier"-- except for summit views of the sprawl to the west below the mountain, this was easily one of the most beautiful trails I have ever done

I got a late start at 1:00 pm, but made it to the top. It was Labor Day and there were hundreds of people up there, but we had the summit to ourselves before sunset.

Summited for the third time July 4th 2006 from Timpooneke. I highly recommend this route rather then Aspen Grove, it is much more scenic and not as hard on the legs.

We reached the summit on a beautiful day of hiking! Got an early start and only one other person beat us to the top, but we passed many people on the way back down. This is a beautiful hike and a very inspiring view at the summit.

Also climbed on 8/23/05. Did both as an overnight, spent the night in Timp Basin. Heard 5 large rockfalls that night. Saw many mountain goats, and what a view from the top! Definitely one of my favorites.

New PR 1 hr: 53 min:47 sec from parking lot to tin hut on summit. Conditions were perfect! Up Aspen Grove trail and down glacier. Glacier is solid ice early. Trails were kind of crowded. Only a couple snowfields to cross.

Time from parking lot to summit 2:24:11 hrs. Blew my Aspen Grove time out of the water! I hadn't done this route in about 15 years, and I forgot how cool it is! There is still a ton of snow, This route is much more "runnable" than Aspen Grove (less steep). With the amount of snow this year, this is the easier way to reach the summit vs. Aspen Grove, at least at this point. You don't have to deal with the tricky crossing from the Emerald Lake Basin towards the north saddle, crossing into Timpanogos Basin. I included a picture of this tricky section which is nicely visible from the Timpooneke trail once in Timpanogos Basin. While this is easily done with an axe and crampons or Kahtoolas and a little experience, it may not be for the less technically apt hiker. However, there are still a fair number of snowfields to negotiate. While most are not too steep, a couple of them require some caution.
