Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2009


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.

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!!

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.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2009


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.

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.
