I am going up the south ridge of mount supiour on Nov. 7th around 4 am. That is this Sat.

Next weekend I am looking at the North Ridge of The Pheifferhorn 13th to 14th.

Thanksgiving weekend starting either Thursday evening or early Friday morning I am starting at Alta at 3am, going up to the ridge and then to Lone Peak and down Bell Canyon. That would be link-up of the Bouillon Devide and the Beatout trail. For this hike I am planning Friday to Sunday night but I do not think it will take that long.

Anyone want to join me?

Wasatchvoyage - thanks for the great pics of Nebo! I've been thinking recently about trying to climb either of the two main E Face ridges shown in your first and last photo as a winter snow climb. Approach from the south doesn't seem to bad if this is done as a Fri-Sat/Sun climb, and I wonder how small those cliff bands get with deeper snow?

Is anyone interested in scoping this out with me when I'm in town over the Christmas holidays, snow conditions permitting?

Very nice pics to all that have posted here. After years of hiking the Wasatch, I still experience sensory overload on nearly every hike or climb I do. I find the mountains to be truly amazing and have since the first time I hiked the north face of Mt. Olympus with a friend 48 years ago. Of course as a couple of 12 year olds hiking alone, we didnt get very far, usually to the mine at the end of the Z trail below the west butress. Starting from home just above Wasatch Blvd. this was about a 4+ mile round trip. A long way to carry the army canvas backpack with the oak frame and steel canteen.

Wasatchvoyage - once again, thanks for sharing your excellent photos from your mountain rompings :D

I'm not sure where the south end of the Nebo road closes, but even if it's closed at the highway, travel is easy and fast enough following the road up the canyon (plus there is very little elevation gain) that an approach should be pretty fast and reasonable if done on a Friday for a Saturday climb, especially if it were done on skiis.

I'm going to be in Salt Lake City from Christmas through the Sunday after New Years, so if conditions are good to get out, I'd love to meet more of the Utah SPers! I have a lot of ideas of things I want to do as winter climbs, conditions permitting.

Sweet mercy guys...I've been MIA on SP for about a week and just saw all these photos. That "windy" photo from East Peak on Timp is killer. Just killer. What glass are you sportin' now? The pics look clean, crisp and beautiful.

On another note, the ice outta be growin' now. It's cold!

On that note I want to get out on some ice this year too. Got my own gear, just need a little mentoring. And long approaches don't scare me. I'm sure one of you will take advantage of the "will belay for mentoring" call.

On another note, I've got a sudden uncontrollable desire to go to Ecuador this winter. I need partners though. Any takers? I know you have some unfinished business Matt... :wink:
