I love it up there above Broad's Fork, WV. That ridge is an old, familiar friend.

The South Ridge: A perfect cardio workout.

Brent doing some alpine athletics: Three hours of aerobics.

Like you said on the TR, the evenings are coming fast now. I was up near Hayden Peak yesterday on a bike and the evening caught me off guard. I was huffing and puffing to make to back to the car with some daylight. Crazy to think the mountains are blazed in gorgeous color now, and in one day they will be blanketed in snow.

Anyone see those clouds part around 9am down here in Utah Valley. Timp was lookin' good! Only about 6 inches or so, but just to see the snow return is exciting! I'm ready for some good 'ol skiing and winter climbing.

Heehee! Snow makes me giddy.

I'm looking for partners for a few early-season alpine ice climbs in the Wasatch:

I'm interested in the ice climb on the East Face of Robert's Horn. I was just up there Sunday looking at the colors. You can see a big streak of water coming down the cliff bands from the summit ridge down the entire east face. I think it's called Timpanogos Couloir, or something like that in the Utah Ice Climbing book. Should be an awesome climb when it's frozen and fat. Keep in touch on this one as conditions improve. I'm should there would be a group interested in this route. Probably Brenton, Brian, Glenn, Daniel, etc.

When the clouds parted, did you happen to see 'MOCKBA" anywhere on the slopes ???

Glad to know the snow has returned to the Wasatch. It's been a very long summer, indeed.

AWESOME pics! I love the snow speckled against the rock and fall colors. Especially the second photo where you can see Timp and down to Silver Lake Reservoir area. I gotta get up there one more time before the snowpack. Thanks for the motivation.

Summit of White, west view.

Looking at Red Baldy just above the White Pine/Red Pine junction on the way back.

Fun stuff, though the slight snowpack made the boulder hopping very interesting descending White Baldy down to upper Red Pine Lake. Looks like we need a Fall Mountaineering Thread now. :)


Awesome awesome awesome pics. Way to get out! I agree with Matt.
