N-S traverse  Sucess!

Up the Grunge couloir to North Timp, then south along the ridge. This would be a real slog if there weren't at least a sort-of trail most of the way. Trip report.

Timpanooke to Scout Falls  Sucess!

Did a partial Timp hike for training purposes. Rode bikes from road closure baracade in AF Canyon to Timpanooke Trailhead, then by 10am we hiked in warm weather up the trail. Hit a few small snow patches 10 ft. from trail head, but half mile up it was completely covered. We all had good boots and either ice axes or treking poles. Trail hard to spot at times so we went directly up two smaller cliff faces. Snow had a thin layer of ice that could easily be kicked through to get a safe foothold. Flat areas above the various cliffs were bare of snow. We turned around below cliffs at final trail to Timp Basin. Slid down most of the way when possible using poles and ice axes to self arrest before hitting trees and rocks at bottom. Fell through to small streams several times. Snow is melting fast. Post holing in most places was unavoidable; should have had snow shoes or climbed earlier in morning to make it easier. Will attempt to summit Timp in 3-4 weeks.

Timp  Sucess!

This was the first peak I ever climbed back in high school, summer of 2000. I was not a hiker or a runner then so I am not sure what possessed me to do it. I went up with my cousin Hannah and uncle Maurice. It was hard and I really had to push myself. I remember being so impressed by the beauty and being so happy once I accomplished it. I am glad I believed I could do it even though it was so far outside my comfort zone.

Great Autumn experience  Sucess!

The leaves where perfect, no snow (on the trail). A little chilly, but a great day for timp!

Aspen Grove  Sucess!

Climbed today with my wife, and the Wasatch Mountain Club. The most goats I have ever seen. Lots of people today too. Shared the summit with about 15 others, while we watched more people ascending from the saddle. Summit was cold and windy, but not bad enough to prevent us from eating lunch and taking pictures. Great day on one of Utah's classic mountains! Go Utes!

First summit of Timp  Sucess!

Myself and a group of co-workers took to the summit today via Aspen Grove trail. We started at 7:00 am and it took us 4 hours and 30 minutes to reach the summit. We spent a little time on top then made it down the trail to the car in 3 hours 15 min for a total time of 7 hours 45 minutes.

We saw a young bull moose and a couple mountain goats. It was a perfect day to hike and we had a great time.

One of my favorites  Sucess!

I've climb Timp four times now and I still love it. I prefer the Aspen Grove Trail as it passes by Emerald Lake and the snowfield, but the Timpanooke Trail is fun too. I love the last part of the trail from the saddle to the top. The last time I went there was still tons of snow on the boulder field (the 3rd week in August, 2011) which made the hike a bit trickier but still doable and tons of fun.

beautiful climb  Sucess!

Pretty hot, but really great weather for hiking. Took Timpooneke trail and had to park outside the campground and got in trouble with highway patrol when I got back to the car. Whoops

Great day  Sucess!

Great day for a climb; the wildflowers were amazing. Saw a coyote and 5 mtn goats. One goat faced me head-on. I had to retreat down the trail until he decided on a different direction.

Timpooneke First Timer  Sucess!

Went with my son, this was our first time on Timpanogos. The Timpooneke trail was awesome! One of the most beautiful trails I have ever been on.

Challenging Date  Sucess!

My buddy and I took two girls who were ill prepared for this climb. They cried a good portion of the ascent and the last 4-5 miles of the descent. In the end, (several months later) they thanked us for one of the greatest experiences of their lives.

Timpooneke  Sucess!

I went with my now wife on our third date. She obviously enjoyed it so I knew I had found my life hiking buddy:). The top gets really crowded on weekend/holidays be careful.
