We climbed and summitted. We had a really good time. As for current conditions, ice axes and crampons would be highly recommended. Clothes to put on to glissade down are mandatory. From the first meadow to the saddle - Timpanooke and Aspen Groove are COMPLETELY under snow - COMPLETELY. From the Saddle to the Hut - all clear. A front side approach would be easier than the back side right now. If you want the normal leisurely walk up the back side, wait until mid to late August.
Ive climbed Timp many times.
Took the weekend off from county highpointing and hit Timp. Left Aspen Grove trailhead around 3:30 am in order to make the top by sunrise. Sunrise, mountain goats, avoiding heat and crowds made the early start worthwhile.
09/01/06 Up one way down the other with Kim, Neo and Samatha
05/20/06 Kim and I joined the WMC to do this one in order to carry some heavy packs in an effort to condition for Mt. Rainier. Great time. And the beginning of many more trips with the WMC
06/21/06 Via Timponeeke. Kim and I and our dogs made it too! (or is that four)
05/31/14 True mountaineering, negotiation of a cornice, got main summit, walked the ridge south, back to main summit, over Bomber and down. One of the best days of my life.
Haben Sie schon einmal wissen, dass Sie mein Held bist
Und alles, was ich sein möchte?
Ich kann höher als ein Adler fliegen
Für Sie sind der Wind unter meinen Flügeln

Seven summits. Most trashed wilderness area I have been to. Avoid crowds by doing winter ascents.
You can't even tell you're gaining elevation. Easy, beautiful route. Numerous mountain goats. Numerous goofballs using their cell phones on the summit.
Liked timponeeke side better--seems to be a moderate climb. Climbed it twice: once in 2000, another in 2008. First large mountain I hiked--but both times I was in horrible shape. Still made it.
I hadn't been up in a few years...since I started running peaks regularly. I was well impressed by the views etc. that I guess I had undervalued in the past. Man this mountain is runnable! Made it from the saddle to the summit in 12:31 and back from Summit to saddle in 6:36. Entire descent under an hour (cruising to the outhouse and then bombing the rest of the way). My first run up was at age 10...this was summit #6 I believe.
1x in 2008,
4x in 2009,
2x in 2010,
2/12/11 via Everst Ridge
00/00/00- via timpanookee with Ben, Eli and Nat. Camped on the first shelf
6/08/13 via Timpanookee with my dog Nebo. 3 hr 5 mins up, 2 hours down
06/14/14 via Timpanookee and down the glacier with Natasha and Nebo
07/30/17 via a ridge by the Grudge, Traverse to summit
10/12/2010 Started at the Aspen Grove TH. First climbed East Peak (10791), then went over to Roberts Horn, then on to Timp, then to South Timp (11722), back over Timp and back to TH. Perfect fall day.
8/2/1999 From Timpooneke with lesdubois.
My wife called my BS when she asked if it was too hard for her to hike. I said yes, so I had to go up again. Awesome hike again
This was my first peak and it was AWESOME! What a beautiful hike. Full of scenery, wildlife and fresh air.
Great summit on a beautiful mountain. Cole's (7 years old) second 11,000' summit. He did great making it to the summit and struggled coming down. Time to make an investment in a good pair of hiking boots for Cole. :) Good friend Rob Seitz joined us and did great.
I've been all over the mountain, and to the shack 4 times - 2005 w/ Nate, 2007 w/ Jay and Chris, 2009 w/ Doug and 2009 again with local scouts.
Started from Aspen Grove and was welcomed by a gorgeous sunrise. The weather was perfect. The billy goats were everywhere at the upper meadows. One of the best hikes in the state. Beautiful place.
awesome hike went down the glacier
Great trail all the way to the top, even through the steep staircase section. Still busy even on a September Friday! Unfortunately didn't get much in the way of views as the Provo side was fogged in pretty good all morning. Made the traverse out and back to the south summit and then went up Roberts Horn on the descent.
Beautiful day; did not have to worry about changing weather. Lots of goats before the lake and up on top. Took about 130 photos of goats! Surprised to see some of the waterfalls had dried up for the season. No way to slide down the "Timp glacier"; there were more rocks than snow.
