over 10 acents  Sucess!

I've climbed this 13 times now. It's been a family tradition to hike it once a year. Every time I've hiked it, I've seen mountain goats.

Good times  Sucess!

We went up from Timpenooke(?) and went directly up the snow, which provided awesome glissading (and ragdolling) on the way down. Such a great area.

Route Climbed: Timpanooke 2x Better in May

First time I climbed it in late july and was a very fun hike, in may though with the snow cover you can get some awsome glissading in. Also you can come directly up some of the rivers that are wterfalls and rapids later in the summer, saving time and adding fun! Great slides down the "glacier."

Timpooneke Trail  Sucess!

Great Climb. First time, couldn't beleive how beautiful the area was. Can't wait to do it again.

Various routes, various summits  Sucess!

Brent & I took the Timpooneke Trail and made it up to the wind-raked summit hut in 3+10. The wildflowers on the north end of the meadow below the summit block were breathtaking. This is without question one of the nicest "mild" hikes in the Wasatch. This was my fourth time at the summit. On October 9, 2007 our small group plowed through 18 inches of snow up the glacier draw and topped out on "Second Summit" at 11,722'. Dave, Christine, Brent, Lana & me. Very windy but not cold. If the activity of the 9th weren't enough, Lana & I took the Timpooneke trail but angled north to intercept the summit ridge at a modest saddle at 11,282' and then followed the snow-icing ridge to the north peak. Nice little mailbox there. What a day and what views looking back south along the entire ridge. Well worth the effort. Lots of snow and some steep attaining the ridge. Have fun! On April 22, 2008, Brent, Lana & I ascended the Dry Canyon trail to a meandering, broad snowfield leading to the saddle south of the summit. Six hours later we were "resting" in the summit hut which was 2/3 filled with snow. This route was excellent. The snowfield is south of the Everest Ridge and is also called the Dry Canyon North Fork. #5 6-1-10 Dry Canyon trail to Everest ridge and to true summit in 5+15. Still plenty of very good snow above 8,300'. W/ Dave, Walt & Christine. Sloppy bookkeeping: a couple of climbs but not dates. #9 (?)10-20-12 Solo 3+07 to top in stiff winds above the saddle to the summit. Wonderful cell reception :) 2+32 down on a sunny fall day. #10 6-15-13 Mit herrlicher Gesellschaft und den zwei mit Energie gefuellten Hunden nach der Zweiten Spitze. Viel suedwestlichen Wind hat es heute gegeben. Schoen. #11 5-31-14 In allen Hinsichten war es eine herrliche Wanderung: der Schnee war gut und die Gesellschaft unbeschreiblich wunderbar. #12 6-20-15 Mit Brooke und Brent. 4+12 up; immer noch viel Schnee hoch und 3 Glissaden auf dem R├╝ckweg. IVD #13 7-25-15 Fantastiches Ereigniss Mit Yz. #14 9-28-15 W/ Anne, Paula & Brent. Pleasant weather & eye-pleasing fall colors. IVD #15 10-27-15 W/ Brent. 3+52 up. Brutally cold winds from the saddle to the top. IVD #16 8-5-16 W/ Brent & Lana. 4+30 up, spectacular wild flowers in the upper meadow. #17 10-25-16 Solo. The most amazing rime ice decorated rocks, plants and the walls and rigging of the summit hut. Joined Trevor Taylor in the hut; we both marveled at the roiling clouds and occasional vistas. 3+52 up. #18 7-14-17 W/ Dave, Lana & Brent. 4+34 up from Timpooneke TH. Lots of lingering snowfields. Used crampons and ice ax for one stretch below the upper lea. #19 9-30-17. W/Yadahzoe. 4+36 up. Fierce winds from saddle. Wind chill @20 degrees. Icy trail from big early snow one week ago. #20 6-2-18 W/ Yadahzoe 6+20 up. Lots of snow from 8,800'. Crampons, ice ax, hairy traverses but awesome glissades coming down. Bluebird day, wild flowers in abundance already. #21 09-28-18 W/ Brent & Lana. 4+08 up on a scenic fall day, autumn colors awing the senses. #22. 02-08-19. W/Lana. 4+58 up. Still tricky snow patches to traverse. Quite warm.

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.
