hiker.dogGreat first climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2013


Hiked Timp from the Aspen Grove side last June. Great time, but still had to contend with some snow. It was easier going up due to the snow still being frozen from the night before, and a little cumbersome going down. Saw many mountain goats, and had a marmot kick a rock down on me as I approached the saddle. After a few choice words, I continued on and made the summit.

eamhatchTimponogos after Lone Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2013


Ammon Hatch, Jason Larsen, Kevin Larsen, Crystal Roberts, Dallin Hunter, Gavin I-don't-know-his-last-name and I climbed Timpanogos via the Timpooneke Trail. Ammon and I did this approximately three-and-a-half days after we climbed Lone Peak. Words to the wise: If your knee hurts after doing Lone Peak, don't climb Timpanogos four days later. You'll feel really hardcore at the time, but also really crummy for months to come.

Started at the Timpooneke trailhead around 5:30am and made it to the summit under clear blue skies around 8:00. Stunning views complement this downright awesome hike and helped make for a memorable experience.

yojimbo722Rain and Snow Overnighter  Sucess!


Started late afternoon at Timpanokee TH and backpacked to Timp basin Friday with rain coming down hard the entire time - but it kept other hikers off the trail. Woke up to a light dusting of snow the next morning (first of the year). Completed the climb up Timp and glisaded down the snowfield. Great over-nighter - though a little wet.

Climbed with the Wasatch Mountain Club and some friends in cold rain. Made it to the saddle before we turned around in pounding rain and bad visibility. Still managed to have a fun day!

NonameiwantFirst Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2011
2011 was my first time summitting. I've summitted 4 other times 3 times in 2012 and once (thus far in 2013). The 2013 summit was a memorable one as I backpacked and camp in the basin below the summit woke up early and arrived to the summit to watch the sunrise. I prefer to do this hike on a weekday later in the season when it's less crowded.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2013
YES! I finally made it up after procrastinating for 2 years. I just had to force myself to make the drive. I ran up in 2:07 and stopped to sign the register, snap some pics, and ran back down. Really great trail and stunning views! Mt Timp is my 60th mtn/peak summit!

HardmanMany Memories on Timp  Sucess!


Timp's popularity is well-deserved (though irritating at times).

I've had days where, my group aside, there hasn't been another soul on the summit, and other days where it felt like a human highway/wildflower pickers' convention.

I'm hoping to pick some different lines next spring (Everest Ridge, maybe the Grunge, etc.)

While the Aspen Grove route takes the lion's share of water and flowers, I've experienced far more wildlife on the Timpooneke trail; coyotes, sage grouse, mule deer.

Started around 11 am with Duc. The geological features of this mountain are amazing. The grand staircase makes for good hiking, beautiful areas to lounge in, and fantastic views. The mountain goats were a terrific sight.

We made it to the top in 3 hours and 40 minutes and back in 2 hours and 20 minutes. Unfortunately, Duc sprained his ankle in the last half-mile.

TonyTheJetGreat First Climb!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2013


For some reason I had never climbed Timp. This year alone I had done Olympus, Big Baldy, Mahogany, Y Mountain, and Spanish Fork Peak, but I always considered Timp "too crowded" for the kind of hiking I like to do. However, the mountain truly lived up to its hype--it was spectacular!

Ten minutes in I saw a moose, and later in the hike I saw a red fox and around 20 mountain goats. The views are incredible, and the glissade down to the lake/pond was a highlight for sure. I'll definitely be going back.

utahguy058Still all the snow   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2012


This was a dry year and we still encountered heaps of snow up in the high country! We did it the loop. Started around one in the morning and headed on up to catch the sunrise on Timp. Had the summit and trail to ourselves! Simply one of the best hikes out there. We came down the Aspen Grove side and maybe saw a total of 8 people. You hear about the crowds, but mid week earlier in the year was the way to go!

Up the Grunge couloir to North Timp, then south along the ridge. This would be a real slog if there weren't at least a sort-of trail most of the way. Trip report.

BJBTimpanooke to Scout Falls  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 2013


Did a partial Timp hike for training purposes. Rode bikes from road closure baracade in AF Canyon to Timpanooke Trailhead, then by 10am we hiked in warm weather up the trail. Hit a few small snow patches 10 ft. from trail head, but half mile up it was completely covered. We all had good boots and either ice axes or treking poles. Trail hard to spot at times so we went directly up two smaller cliff faces. Snow had a thin layer of ice that could easily be kicked through to get a safe foothold. Flat areas above the various cliffs were bare of snow. We turned around below cliffs at final trail to Timp Basin. Slid down most of the way when possible using poles and ice axes to self arrest before hitting trees and rocks at bottom. Fell through to small streams several times. Snow is melting fast. Post holing in most places was unavoidable; should have had snow shoes or climbed earlier in morning to make it easier. Will attempt to summit Timp in 3-4 weeks.
