The Record Continues  Sucess!

Summit 352 bagged today, continuing the lifetime summits record. Climbed the mountain over 30 times this summer. I think I'll go do the ridge trail for a while . . . something a bit more runnable. I'm tired.

excellent hike  Sucess!

Via Timponooke route. Saturday, so very crowded but a beautiful hike, probably the best I've done so far. Look forward to a future ascent via aspen grove in the future... and on a weekday. Wildflowers galor.

Timpooneke Trail  Sucess!

Beautiful day! Began at 7:15, clear weather till 12:30. The meadows were in full bloom, and convinced me to add this hike to my calendar for both August and September of this year. The weather was hot, and I look forward to future fall hiking.

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.

Route Climbed: West Face: May 19, 2006

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.

Route Climbed: Timpooneke Trail  Sucess!

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).
