March 13, 2005 - Mt...

March 13, 2005 - Mt Timpanogos (11,749') seen from Point of the Mountain (north), a ridge that separates Utah Valley from the Salt Lake Valley. The summit of Mt Timpanogos is enshrouded in the clouds and the prominent summit on the north/close end of the massif is North Peak (11,447'). The two prominent avalanche paths are known as the Cold Fusion Couloir (left) and the Y-Couloir (right). Both of these reach 50o in steepeness. Just to the right of the Y-Couloir is the NW Ridge route.


The canyon in the foreground is American Fork Canyon, and Mt Mahogony (9,001' - foreground, center) and Mt Baldy (8,758' - right) rise between Timpanogos & the Utah Valley suburbs (ca.4600').


Joe, I know that there is a Y-Couloir in LCC, so I might be mistaken with the name here. Can you check your backcountry skiing guide to make sure this is right?

Nice photo and great information!

If you don't know anything about a peak, this kind of captions is excactly what you want.

Re: Great perspective.

Thanks! I was out photographing residential construction materials & techniques in Draper's housing developments that day - I hadn't even thought it would be a good outing for photographing peaks!
