Bruce ChristensenA little rescue
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2007

Bruce Christensen

I hiked the Aspen Grove route with a couple of friends. Since afternoon thunderstorms were rolling in, we decided to turn back at the saddle.

On the way up we found a man and his son stuck up on a dry waterfall. They lost the trail on the way down and ended up descending a steep water-carved channel. We helped them downclimb back to the main trail. Although they were visibly nervous, they both did great for their first bouldering experience. Hopefully their next one won't be so exciting. :)

First time up via Timpooneke trail. Made it to the top in about 2.5 hours. Great views of a storm coming in.

One of the best hikes in Utah and early summer is great for wild flowers and less people. Go for the sun rise and you'll wish you'd seen the sunset.

Weren't even aware of Mt. Timp until a visit 2 years ago. Made a note to come back and climb it. Did that this July on a beautiful day. Great climb in beautiful country. LOTS of mountain goats. Nine and a half PAGES of entries in the summit register the day before. What's up with that?

Beautiful weather. A light rain on the way down helped cool things off a bit (felt GREAT). Saw a herd of about 20 mtn goats near the hut on the way down, and 2 moose almost to the trail head.

Nearly perfect day, the trail wasn't too crowded, and the sun wasn't too hot. The glacier sure is getting small.

I climbed Timp the first time in July 2004 via the Timpooneke trail--came down the glacier and down the Aspen Grove trail. I have climbed it every year since (Aug.'05, Sept.'06, Jul. & Sept.'07), but always from the Aspen Grove side (it's closer to my house). Timp is one of my favorite mountains!

First climbed it on the Aspen trail in 2005. Have done it a few times since then on that trail and tried Everest Ridge this last spring without success. Maybe next year...

I've climbed this 13 times now. It's been a family tradition to hike it once a year. Every time I've hiked it, I've seen mountain goats.

We went up from Timpenooke(?) and went directly up the snow, which provided awesome glissading (and ragdolling) on the way down. Such a great area.

First time I climbed it in late july and was a very fun hike, in may though with the snow cover you can get some awsome glissading in. Also you can come directly up some of the rivers that are wterfalls and rapids later in the summer, saving time and adding fun! Great slides down the "glacier."

Brent & I took the Timpooneke Trail and made it up to the wind-raked summit hut in 3+10. The wildflowers on the north end of the meadow below the summit block were breathtaking. This is without question one of the nicest "mild" hikes in the Wasatch. This was my fourth time at the summit. On October 9, 2007 our small group plowed through 18 inches of snow up the glacier draw and topped out on "Second Summit" at 11,722'. Dave, Christine, Brent, Lana & me. Very windy but not cold. If the activity of the 9th weren't enough, Lana & I took the Timpooneke trail but angled north to intercept the summit ridge at a modest saddle at 11,282' and then followed the snow-icing ridge to the north peak. Nice little mailbox there. What a day and what views looking back south along the entire ridge. Well worth the effort. Lots of snow and some steep attaining the ridge. Have fun! On April 22, 2008, Brent, Lana & I ascended the Dry Canyon trail to a meandering, broad snowfield leading to the saddle south of the summit. Six hours later we were "resting" in the summit hut which was 2/3 filled with snow. This route was excellent. The snowfield is south of the Everest Ridge and is also called the Dry Canyon North Fork. #5 6-1-10 Dry Canyon trail to Everest ridge and to true summit in 5+15. Still plenty of very good snow above 8,300'. W/ Dave, Walt & Christine. Sloppy bookkeeping: a couple of climbs but not dates. #9 (?)10-20-12 Solo 3+07 to top in stiff winds above the saddle to the summit. Wonderful cell reception :) 2+32 down on a sunny fall day. #10 6-15-13 Mit herrlicher Gesellschaft und den zwei mit Energie gefuellten Hunden nach der Zweiten Spitze. Viel suedwestlichen Wind hat es heute gegeben. Schoen. #11 5-31-14 In allen Hinsichten war es eine herrliche Wanderung: der Schnee war gut und die Gesellschaft unbeschreiblich wunderbar. #12 6-20-15 Mit Brooke und Brent. 4+12 up; immer noch viel Schnee hoch und 3 Glissaden auf dem Rueckweg.
