Went via timpanooke trailhead, very nice hike, taught me to stretch beforehand and get better shoes.

And other than Bomber peak, this is the easiest summit along the timp ridge as well as the highest and most crowded.
Came up timpanoke trail and it was pretty easy. My first Wasatch 11ender and Im glad to have started here.
08/16/20 w/Cory Martin. Hazy and hot, but a stunning and impressive peak
Great day with Sam & Greg. Cloudy and little wind. Started climbing Big Baldy and bushwhacking to the route. We opted for the cliffs at the crux (snow was too hard). Great day out- thanks guys!
Left the trailhead at 5:30 am, it got real cold near the cabin but warmed up a ton later in the day. Gashed up my shin on the way back, looked a lot worse than it was
Got turned back by huge amounts of snow in early July (couldn't even find the trail after 3 miles). Made it just in time, as there was already a few inches of new snow in early September.
Probably my favorite mountain to hike around Provo. Amazing views from the top. Headed up with a group of experienced runners who really pushed the pace to the top. Started around 4am and made it to the top with a quick push. Fun scrambling at the top. Bombed down in great time, but one member of our party took a little tumble and got pretty cut up. Ended up having to get stitches. All in all — wonderful hike and definitely worth it.
Took the Timpanookee trail. Sorry I spelled it wrong
Climbed mountain with my father and my son. Son was six at the time.
Left at about 3 PM, hoping to make the summit for sunset. We encountered more snow than expected, and this slowed us down significantly. A little snow and ice 3 miles in and 6-8" of snow 4 miles in. We made it up to the ridge at about 7:30 and caught the tail end of sunset, still excellent views. Turned around and hiked down in the dark.
Glad we started early (5 am) only the last bit coming down the heat got to us. Still very cold on the west side of the ridge though. Glad to have brought a sweater, wishing I had a hat and gloves.
Aspen Grove trail. Total time 8.5 hrs.
Great summit with Brandon Stanger and Kaden Robinson. Lots of people and lots of goats on the descent.
Climbed via Timpooneke for the first time with Liam Grover and Kaden Robinson. Cold and windy from the saddle to the summit. Awesome day with two great dudes!
Climbed it again today, started on the trail at 2 AM. Waited on top for sunrise, views of the valley at night were unbelievable, the sunrise was gorgeous. Stopped for a quick dip in frigid Emerald Lake on the way back down. Still one of my all-time favorites!
Great hike to the summit via Aspen Grove and back down on a lovely (and ultimately toasty) August day. Enjoyed a big ham & roast beef sandwich on top as I took in the 360 degree summit views. Hiked with my brother and friends Joe and Chelsea. Saw ~2 dozen mountain goats over the course of the hike.
Four hours and five minutes from the theatre parking lot area to the top and an hour less going down. It's a good introductory peak to alpine areas in summer and early fall although that also means people cutting switchbacks too.
When I was a kid I would stare up at Timp from the swing in my uncle's backyard in Pleasant Grove, directly below the "G". I would ponder its size and what it would be like to stand high on its slopes and look down.
It wasn't until years later that I got into mountain climbing and could appreciate Timp for what it was. I have struggled to find a mountain in the US that rises so steeply and with such relief above a populated area. The local relief of Pikes Peak above Colorado Springs comes to mind, but the steepness does not compare. Whitehorse Mountain in Washington is steeper above Darrington, but doesn't have quite the local relief. Timp is one of a kind in this regard.
As a life-long Washingtonian, opportunities to climb the mountain were few and far between. I finally got a chance with some family members on a short trip to Utah. It turned out to be a great hike with a beautiful and dynamic trail (Timpooneke in this case). Thanks Timp! I'll need to do a west side route in the snow some day...
