rharrisCrowded!  Sucess!
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.

I echo other people's comments about the beauty of this trail. Three waterfalls, one of which you can walk under...nice cooloff on the way down. Saw mountain goats high up above Emerald Lake in what looked like 5th class territory. One particular goat was comtemplating a move to another ledge above him. Amazing! Still enough snow if you are interested in the glissade, although I didn't go down that way.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2009


First time on the Aspen Grove trail, what a beautiful hike. We saw about 35 mountain goats in the meadows north of Emerald Lake, followed by a walk across the soft, but supporting, snow pack to the saddle. We glissaded down the snow field above the lake before heading back to the car.

Nice hike up the Aspen Grove trail. Busy day on the mountain, despite all of the snow. Temperatures were nice and cool...because it was raining!

Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2007


Great Mountain, attempted it 11 years ago but ended up making out with my (now wife) in the meadows below. Ran out of time and had to hurry down to make our flight home. Returned 10 years later to get it. Another trip grabbed the south peak, Roberts Horn and the East peak.

Our route didn't take us to the true summit. Started at Aspen Grove 6890 ft @ 5am) once we attained the saddle (11,300 ft) we traversed south to the SE summit (11,600 ft @11am, total gain 4710 ft) and skied the East Ridge, an epic ski run, steep the whole way, navigating cliff bands and a bushwhack to the Stewart Falls trail to complete the trip back to Aspen Grove lot. Start time 5am, end time nearly 9 hrs later at 1:50pm.

Great summer hike, very refreshing to be up and out of the heat. Great glissade down the glacier above Emerald Lake, that same day a hiker broke his leg glissading down.

The Timpanooke trail is super easy...go for a walk, summit, and get back home with a great feeling of satisfaction b/c you spent all day out side but didn't have to work very hard to get great views and a nice summit experience.

Probably my favorite peak, I try to climb it at least once a year but I just moved back to Utah so I haven't in a few years. Would love to try an alpine style winter climb someday.

rockthrowjoeAspen Grove route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2002


Started hike from Aspen Grove at 3am. Summited by 6am to see the sunrise. The moon was bright so I didn't even use a flashlight past the waterfall. Since I wasn't using a flashlight my eyes adjusted to the dark so well that at one point I noticed the plants around me and the trail in front of me were all of sudden getting lighter. So I stopped and looked up in the dark sky and saw a very bright shooting star travelling towards the earth at a fairly sharp angle. And I could even hear a slight "fffttt" sound. After the meteor burned up I could still see it's trail illuminated by the light of the moon.

Definitely one of the coolest experiences I've had. Also I did the whole hike up and down with a quart of water. I was so dehydrated. I also got off the trail and lost for awhile crossing the boulder field on the north side of Timp.

That day was my birthday and later on I went water-skiing for the first time.
