Date Climbed: Nov 9, 2012
|Ran up from Alpine via Schoolhouse Springs with Craig. Very runnable most of the way up. We did detour down to Lake Hardy (pretty amazing), but should have stayed up and to the left about a 1/4 mile before the lake instead of dropping down to the lake. We were intending to go on to North Thunder but 50+ mph winds and cold freezing hand made it a death wish. I was really disappointed to not make it over to North Thunder but we had a BLAST bombing down the mountain on the way down.|

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2008
|I had an evening commitment, so vanman and I got a 5 am start, and in just under 12 hours climbed S Thunder and Bighorn Peak. The mountain was still snowy even on south aspects above ~9500' and we hardly had to walk on any talus. South Thunder was a very nice snow climb, and has some of the best views in the Wasatch. We had some decent glissading too. There was a mountain goat on the summit as we approached.|

|Climbed with Steve Bohman. We had a great day, although it was very windy on top. We decided to go down the Alpine side, which did not seem any faster and it was very hot and dry on that side. (See trip report)|
