Climbed it as part of the Timpanogos Ridge Traverse. Beautiful views from the top, well worth the effort, I was going to hit South Timpanogos and The Shoulder but unfortunately I had commitments I had to get to definitely next time, but at least the glissading down the glacier was fun.
Have now climbed Timp via five different routes. Ginsu Ridge in March, Aspen Grove, Timpanooke, West face via North Summit, and West Face directly to summit.
hike up Timpooneke Trail with dad and brother in law Jason. still a bit chilly at the top.
Sneaked Timp in before the cold weather hit. UP #6 in Utah for me. Two left. It was very crowded, even in the late season and as a result I've had better times on other peaks.
Long distance, but easy hiking ... Via Aspen Grove. Even during the week, lots of people. Wouldn't want to do this on a weekend. Beautiful approach and saw a moose in the willows near the TH. Climbed with RB.
Nice hike -- very crowded lot, even on a Friday at 6AM. This is a very popular mountain!
What a great hike! The views were outstanding. We started up at 6:30 a.m., and we saw a lot of people on the trail--some who had started hiking around midnight--but it never felt too congested. The temperature was perfect, and there was the whisper of a light, cool wind to keep us comfortable. We had a great time! Up and back in 7.5 hrs.
What an awesome hike. So many waterfalls and beautiful wild flowers along the Aspen Grove trail. I'd definitely recommend glissading from the south ridge to Emerald Lake- faster and more fun. A+, Timp. Great trail running, too.
Finally got the chance to mount this gorgeous lady since moving to Utah almost two years ago. Headed up via Aspen Grove. Stopped at Emerald Lake so my friend could do a naked backflip. We also saw a heard of mountain goats ambling about on the cliff face below South Timp, sending rocks cascading down. After summiting, we took the ridge toward the saddle between Timp + South Timp and glissaded back down to the lake, where upon the rest of us jumped in. Got off the mountain just in time to miss a storm that had rolled in!
found a camera 8am 6/29 about halfway between Aspen Grove & Emerald Lake. PM me to claim.
Hiked Timp from the Aspen Grove side last June. Great time, but still had to contend with some snow. It was easier going up due to the snow still being frozen from the night before, and a little cumbersome going down. Saw many mountain goats, and had a marmot kick a rock down on me as I approached the saddle. After a few choice words, I continued on and made the summit.
Ammon Hatch, Jason Larsen, Kevin Larsen, Crystal Roberts, Dallin Hunter, Gavin I-don't-know-his-last-name and I climbed Timpanogos via the Timpooneke Trail. Ammon and I did this approximately three-and-a-half days after we climbed Lone Peak. Words to the wise: If your knee hurts after doing Lone Peak, don't climb Timpanogos four days later. You'll feel really hardcore at the time, but also really crummy for months to come.
Started at 10 pm on Friday with several members of the Utah Climbing Club. Summited Saturday morning. Awesome time up the left side of the Hillary Step.
Started at the Timpooneke trailhead around 5:30am and made it to the summit under clear blue skies around 8:00. Stunning views complement this downright awesome hike and helped make for a memorable experience.
Started late afternoon at Timpanokee TH and backpacked to Timp basin Friday with rain coming down hard the entire time - but it kept other hikers off the trail. Woke up to a light dusting of snow the next morning (first of the year). Completed the climb up Timp and glisaded down the snowfield. Great over-nighter - though a little wet.
Climbed with the Wasatch Mountain Club and some friends in cold rain. Made it to the saddle before we turned around in pounding rain and bad visibility. Still managed to have a fun day!
Saturday Fly to Salt Lake City, drive to Timpooneke Campground
Sunday Timpooneke trail to Emerald Lake
Monday To the top, retrieve pack and down Aspen Grove trail
Tuesday back to LA
No water along the trail or in upper Timpanogos Basin. Rained on the way down. Great scenery. Wish I took more pictures!
2011 was my first time summitting. I've summitted 4 other times 3 times in 2012 and once (thus far in 2013). The 2013 summit was a memorable one as I backpacked and camp in the basin below the summit woke up early and arrived to the summit to watch the sunrise. I prefer to do this hike on a weekday later in the season when it's less crowded.
YES! I finally made it up after procrastinating for 2 years. I just had to force myself to make the drive. I ran up in 2:07 and stopped to sign the register, snap some pics, and ran back down. Really great trail and stunning views! Mt Timp is my 60th mtn/peak summit!
Timp's popularity is well-deserved (though irritating at times).
I've had days where, my group aside, there hasn't been another soul on the summit, and other days where it felt like a human highway/wildflower pickers' convention.
I'm hoping to pick some different lines next spring (Everest Ridge, maybe the Grunge, etc.)
While the Aspen Grove route takes the lion's share of water and flowers, I've experienced far more wildlife on the Timpooneke trail; coyotes, sage grouse, mule deer.
