Part of the Beatout
Started in Alpine at the "Lehi gate". From 1st hamengog, took the Lake Hardy trail up to Chipman, and then over to UPWOP along Lightning ridge. Fantastic views once you hit the saddle between it and Thunder ridge.
Climbed up to Chipman along the Beatout. Awesome views of Box Elder, Timp, and Utah Lake! Still a long way to go after...
Made the summit as part of the Beatout Hike with David and Kendrick. The views were among the best I've seen in the Wasatch, thanks in part to some cool, cloudy weather. See "Misty Mountains" trip report for details.
I did the Beatout Route with Brandon and Kendrick. It was an incredibly scenic route. It was a long day but worth it. (Pfiefferhorn, Upwop, Chipman, South Thunder).
Traverse from Lone Peak, Bighorn, S Thunder. 34 minutes from S Thunder to Chipman.
Beatout w/ WMC. Long day, great scramble. The scramble to the Chipman saddle was the most challenging on the route but still fairly straightforward.
with WMC group (Sam & Glen)
A low priority Wasatch Peak. Nothing remarkable about it. I grabbed it on the same morning as Bell's and the Thunder Mountains and Lightning Ridge just because I was already there. Those other peaks are superior, but Chipman is nice for the numbers too and gives a new perspective on Bell's and the backside of Lone Peak, which is worth a photograph at least. It is just a gentle walk up. Will want crampons early in the season. Great camping between this peak and Bells, about equidistant by a lake. Forget the name, but easily found on the map.
Due to haze from wildfires, the view was very limited. Saw nobody else between Pfeifferhorn and Upper Bells reservoir.

Through on as part of our Beatout Climb
Hiked from Red Pine Canyon. Traversed the south aspect of Pfeifferhorn. Climbed up the southeast face to the northeast ridge. The snow was deep and light which made for a terrible slog, but the views were great. My first time exploring that area of the Central Wasatch. I think the Hematoma Quad is the next goal.
Spent two cold nights skinning up Dry Creek with grander plans in the area. In the end I just wandered over and climbed Chipman with Foweezer and Marauders via the saddle/west bowl. Steep snow climb at the top!
