Route Climbed: Timpooneke-Aspen Grove Roundtrip  Sucess!

Great day, perfect morning weather, awesome trip. While we sat at the summit hut, a fighter jet buzzed the summit. Very cool. Took a slide down the glacier, and a nice walk down to Aspen Grove.

Route Climbed: Everest ridge  Sucess!

From big baldy saddle there was quite a bit of bushwacking down low and loose shale above tree line. Not a very fun route without snow. Step was very straightforward. Descended down the traverse then glissaded down the snow into canyon to the east of the ridge (Dry creek canyon?)

Timpooneke Trail  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with summitpost members elessar, tatwood, and cougarclimber. We went up the Timpooneke trail starting at around 11:30-12 on the night of the 16th. By the time we reached the Timpanogos Basin, the sun was starting to rise, giving us plenty of light to get up the headwall. There was a lot of snow still up there and it was really steep. Cougarclimber's anklewas giving him issues so he went back down just before the summit ridge. The rest of us went on to the summit, then glissaded down the glacier and returned to the timpooneke trail.

Superb route. I loved the scenery and the surrounding environment. Spring is a great time of year to climb this mountain because the contrast of white on the mountain and green in the valley is astounding. The glissade down was one of the best ever.

Route climbed: Aspen Grove Trail  Sucess!

Set out to hike this one with my older brother Barton, but due to time constraints he turned around above the shelter so I told him I would find a way back to my Provo apartment by begging a ride from someone. I was successful in making it to the summit (12 inches of snow on top) and in getting someone to give me a lift back home.

22 years and one day later, my wife and I were awakened by a phone call from our son Lance early on a Saturday morning. He said, "Guess where I am." He was on top of Timp with his Uncle Eric and his cousin Spencer, watching the sunrise.

I climb Timp. when I was only 11 or 12 years old. I can't remember much about the hike other than I thought it was a long hike. I hiked it with my friend and his uncle. We used the Timpooneke Trail to hike the mountain.

Timpooneke & Aspen Grove Routes  Sucess!

A spur-of-the-moment hike of the Timpooneke Route on 9/18/04 (decided to to it when my friend and I were bored at a latenight pizza party) is what got me hooked on hiking and climbing.
Hiked the same route with my brothers and Dad on 7/31/10 (see "Timpooneke Semi-Loop" trip report for details).
Finally took the Aspen Grove route on 7/18/16, which I feel is the more scenic of the two (see "Aspen Grove Semi-Loop" trip report for details).

Everest Ridge  Sucess!

With a name like "Everest Ridge" and a crux named "The Step" we just had to visit this route. We were underwhelmed. After gaining the summit ridge by a direct line my parner queried, "What Step?" We were back to the car in under 10 hours.

Route Climbed: Aspen Grove Trail Date Climbed: August 1999  Sucess!

It's well worth hiking up this very accessible mountain, and you can probably see the homes of 80% of Utahns from the top. Hiked right through a herd of 20-30 mountain goats.

Route Climbed: Everest Ridge Date Climbed: April 2005  Sucess!

Hiked partway up and bivied on the Baldy Sadle over night to allow for a quick acent the next day while the snow was still icey. Made up the the Step no problem--we decided the climb was safe enough without a belay. This is a beautiful climb and would do it again in a heart beat.

Route Climbed: Timpooneke Trail Date Climbed: Labor Day 1999  Sucess!

A beautiful hike. Hiked steadily through the late morning and early afternoon, then enjoyed a windy lunch at the "saddle" to push on to the top. Great views of Utah and Salt Lake counties from the summit.

On the negative side, the trail was very crowded, and I noticed a lot of people uneducated in outdoor knowledge - unburied (or carried out) feces and toilet paper, water consumed untreated from streams and ponds trailside, shortcutting, loud talking, etc.
