kteichertAdventurous day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2015


Started from the summit th of the alpine loop and went up the ridge from horse flat. Summitted Roberts horn, then went down to emerald lake, up the glacier chute to the saddle, summitted south timp, then across to the actual timp summit, down timpanookee and back through salamander up to my car. Great 16 mile, 6.5 hour day.

edgeFun Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2015


Climbed to the summit of South Timpanogos from the Aspen Grove trailhead. Took longer than expected due to snow or lack thereof in the glacier area. Beautiful views from the top over to Timp and the massive thunderstorms over the Uintas.
edit: 07/19/15- Climbed South Summit again, not because it was so fun but because I missed yet another shady low-prominence 11'er: Southeast Timpanogos (11608ish feet), luckily I climbed it and I've officially completed all the 11'ers on the Timpanogos Massif! The trip up to the top was worth it because the scenery combined with low cumulus clouds was perfect!

I went back up before work to finish a traverse of the Timp massif that I had to abandon a few days earlier. Great views.

apachedinoRazorback Ridge/Finished Wasatch 11ers!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2013


Finished all of the Wasatch 11ers finally with a spectacular hike up Razorback Ridge. If it is in condition then highly consider taking these what appears to be seldom used route. This was the cusp of fall colors and a fine way to finish a long project. Feel so lucky to have spent so many great hours in these mountains. Their proximity has definitely helped shape my life.

scgrantSouth Timp  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2015


8/16/2015 As part of an epic day with Ben Stokes. Starting at the Aspen Grove TH we first summitted Elk Point. From there we followed the Razorback Ridge to the "Shoulder" and on up to the South Summit. From the South Summit of Timp we continued heading along the ridge to Timp's SE summit before ultimately traversing around the cockscomb ridge that frames the massive Big Provo Cirque. We worked our way down through some fairly major cliff bands to the top of Sundance Ski Resort and followed service roads down to the base of Sundance.
7/21/2013 Via the Timpooneke trailhead. Traversed over from the main summit to the South summit. From South Timp I traversed back to the main summit and onto Bomber Peak before dropping back down into Timpanogos basin.

seanoN-S traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 26, 2013


Starting at Timpanookee, up North Timp, then along the ridge. This peak is close to the Timp glacier descent, and has a nice view of Timpanogos; I'm surprised not many people seem to visit it. Trip report.

BritaSouth Timp  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012


We started at Aspen Grove and it was a busy day on the trail. We implemented a run rule for whenever we encountered anyone and that meant we ran the entire way to Emerald Lake. From there we headed up the glacier and I usually HATE snow but this was well packed and easy to climb. My wimpiness kicked in after the snow during the finally push to the top. I am not a fan of feeling exposed. It was warmer at the top than I expected and of course the view was a great reward. We saw a mountain goat chilling in the snow, very camouflaged. It was fun to have a few guys join us on the run down, that doesnt usually happen. :)

runbyu1South Timp from Aspen Grove on a gorgeous day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012


Ran up from Aspen Grove to Emerald Lake and then we scrambled up the glacier and piles of rocks up to the saddle (the little trench on the right is much easier than the "trail"). Took about 25 minutes from Saddle to summit moving easy. Summit was gorgeous and weather was great. Came back down and saw a mountain goat less than 5 meters away just sitting on the glacier---never moved! Ran back down to the car, great day.

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009


This was either my second or third time at Second Summit. Hiked it with Dave & Christine. The Razorback Ridge route is by far the hairiest way to get to the top, hands down. I didn't realize that Second Summit had its own page. :) #4 6-15-13 Im Schnee und mit Steigeisen zum Sattel, dann spaeter die Hauptspitze mit wunderbarer Gesellschaft und zwei begeisterten Hunden!

Made the out and back traverse over from Timp's main summit. Surprisingly good trail all the way to the saddle at the top of Timp Glacier then some steep class 2 to the summit.

Starting from the Aspen Grove trailhead, I hiked up the Timp Glacier to the South summit. From there, I traversed over Timpanogos, Bomber Peak, and North Timpanogos. Car to car time was about 8 hours, 20 minutes.

vanman798Via the Snow Field  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2012


The first snow in the valley took place Oct 25, 2012 so I decided it would be a good day to climb timp the next day so I could have the place to myself. The snow didn't fill in as much as I hoped amounting to maybe 8 inches or less at 11,000 feet. Started at 6:45 am, made it to Emerald Lake at 10:09 am. By 11:25 am I had crossed the snowfield and climbed to the saddle. From the saddle it took 35 minutes to reach the south summit. Everything was covered in rhime ice. Next it was on to the true summit which I reached at 1:40 pm. I continued on to Bomber peak arriving at 3:26 pm, and from there to N. Timp by 4:28 pm. I took the Cold Fusion Coulior down which was tough going with the snow just enough to make it slick. It was close to 7 pm when I made it to the dirt road, and was lucky enough to hitch a ride with some hunters.
July 4, 2010. Went up the snowfield from Emerald Lake. Took 45 minutes to reach the saddle and another 15 minutes to reach the peak.

Was on top before 9 pm and was able to catch the sunset. The views were amazing. I could see the Great Salt Lake to the NW, Utah Lake to the West, Jordanal Dam to the NE, Deer Creek Resevoir to the East, and Mt Nebo to the south.


August 9, 2008 - Went up the Aspen Grove trail to Emerald lake (that took 1 hour 45 minutes), continued on to Roberts Horn (from the lake this took 1/2 hour). Descended back to Emerald Lake and climbed the snow field to the saddle (Lake to saddle took 1/2 hour), then I summited South Timp (in 15 minutes from saddle), then descended and ascended Timp (in 40 minutes from saddle). I returned via the snowfield and the Aspen Grove trail. Big day and another of my solo trips.

seanpeckhamRoute Climbed: ridge traverse from Bomber Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2008


Approached via Timpooneke and camped in Timp Basin. Descended via the "glacier". I had to hurry to the peak and back from the glacier saddle because of questionable weather. Saw a herd of mountain goats at Emerald Lake that let me get close-up photos.
