Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2012
|Traversed Timp Oct 26, 2012 from Aspen Grove up to South Summit, over to main summit, on to Bomber and N. Timp and down the Cold Fusion Coulior. Took 12 hours 15 minutes.|
April 21, 2012 - Fifth year in a row. This year climbed via the Cold Fusion Coulior. The snow was soft, and there was a lot of natural slide activity from the warm day before. We started at 2:30 am, and reached the base of the coulior by 5:28 am (slow). The coulior which in the past has taken as little as 2 hours to climb, took more than 3 hours, and then 15 minutes to the true peak from the false one. Nice Sunny day. It took under 2 hours to descend the coulior, and we were back to the car by 1:30 pm.
May 16, 2011 - Fourth year in a row, and second year in a row up the Grunge Coulior.
June 15, 2010 - Third year in a row, so this time I used a different route, The Grunge Couloir. Great route, but be mindfull of falling rocks.
May 9, 2009: Climbed via the Cold Fusion Couloir as part of a group of eight from the Wasatch Mountain Club. Made much better time than last year. Round trip was just over 8 hours.
May 31, 2008 : Sean Peckham and I reached the base of the cold fusion couloir before sunrise at 5:30 am, and had nice hard snow, and clear weather, all the way to the peaks. Amazing views from the peaks!

|First time, May 31, 2008 with vanman798. Tough route, not just because of the 5-mile approach! Especially with such an early start that I didn't sleep a wink the night before, and carrying the extra weight of skis for the descent, which was worth the effort. We had perfect snow conditions: hard on the way up, and for the descent, a bit choppy but very edgeable at the top, creamy corn in the middle, and near-slush only at the very bottom. The snow was patchy near the top of the couloir so I had to downclimb a bit before putting on skis, but my first several turns were in very narrow bands of 45º snow between bare talus. North Timp is a beautiful and awesome mountain; I loved the summit, and this route deserves its status as the trendy thing to do this spring. I had a great time.|
Second time, May 27, 2009 with Scott Wesemann and Matt Van Horn. More filled-in in the couloir this time, but less snowy on the summit ridge. Got a later start this time and made better time in total. The skiing was even more perfect this time, started higher, dodged fewer rocks, and had really good corn the whole way.

|4-29-08 and 5-6-08 and 5-9-09. All via the Cold Fusion Couloir approach. Thanks to Lana, Dave & Brent for their companionship on the CFC in April of '08. 5-9-09 was a WMC hike with a total of 8 fine individuals. Perfect weather and near perfect snow. Vorberteitungs Besteigung eine Woche frueher als heutige Besteigung 4-17-10 mit WMC. Also, fuenftes Mal oben auf diesem Weg. Zehn Teilnehmer haben die Spitze erreicht. #6 5-7-11 Mit WMC Teilnehmer. Acht Personen haben die Spitze erreicht. Der Wind war furchtbar. #7 4-7-12 Vorbereitungswanderung von dem gewoehnlichen Anfangspunkt; ein herrlicher Tag mit ein bisschen Wind oben. Begleitung war vollkommen, glaube ich. #8 4-28-12 Mit Klub, neun Stunden Rundfahrt, herrlicher Tag, 5 auf der Spitze mit der Sonderperson bestimmt da als Begleiterin.#9 4-23-13 To check out the Cold Fusion Couloir route w/ Sam Grant. Conditions were excellent except for ultra-deep powder in sections of the mid-couloir (postholing up to mid-thigh). In and out of the clouds on both the false and true summits. #10 4-27-13 With WMC hikers Sam, John B. and Kevin C. Better conditions than the prior Tuesday but lotsa wind on the summit. What's new? #11 4-17-14 W/ Sam Grant as prep for WMC hike in two days, both via CFC. But IVD tief. #12 4-19-14 WMC hike with 10 excellent & enthusiastic mountaineers. Für mich war es besonders schön.|

|Nice route! Fun terrain and beautiful scenery. I love to travel the Timpanogos massif this time of year. The snow provides an alpine feeling and the mountain is totally void of visitors. We didn't see anyone else on the mountain.|

|This route was absolutely amazing and has the best glissade of any route I've ever been on. Climbed with Marauders and Ammon Hatch.|

|May 16, 2011 - Climbed via Grunge Couloir and descended Cold Fusion. Did both the upper and lower couloirs on ascent, rather than the normal approach, which made for a great route. Highly recommended. Awesome conditions kept the rockfall minimized and made for great cliombing. Unfortunately we were also socked in and had poor vosibility. More unfortunately, the descent was terrible and we weren't able to glissade.|
May 12, 2007 - Went up with Marauders and Tatwood. It was a strenuous climb to be sure. It took 3 1/2 hours to get up the col from the Timpooneke road, and 15 minutes to slide back down on my butt :)

|I just came back from Timp. Great weather, no soul around all day and about 2 feet snow. Just another wonderful day on Timp.|

|It is quite possible to be here on a summer day and not see another human being for hours, then head South to that other peak and see four hundred people. I have old summit logs from North Peak if anyone is interested.|

|One of the longest hike for me ever... 12 hours total|
Boy, were we tired! The views were awesome, and once arriving at the saddle, we noticed some people turning around back because they could not cope with the sheer dropoff on the western side. It was a great hike!

|Nice and easy...but it sucks having to lose and then regain all the elevation coming from the southeast along Timp's main ridge.|

|The Grunge is a great route. We started late so the snow was soft and we could kick steps, so we didn't need pro.|
I plan to go back when the snow is more icy.

|Nice peak. Went to the Grunge once too, but it appeared to be too risky that day with rockfall.|
