Not a very difficult peak especially when you start from emerald lake, but the views from the top were amazing. You could see the whole cirque. Its pretty straight forward on the way up, there are a few pretty good social trials and thats what we stuck too.
Great early winter peak!
6 Miles, 4100' ele. gain
Got a bit of a late start on this first day of daylight savings, so I was pushing my daylight window a bit on this cold November day. I started at the Timpooneke TH following the trail towards Emerald Lake before branching off heading up the ridge to Roberts Horn. Great centrally located peak for some fantastic views. After hiking down the ridge from Roberts Horn I went up the snowy, rocky couloir between the south summit of Timp and Timp to the glacier saddle. From there I hustled up and over Timp and down the trail back to my truck just as it was getting dark.
with Paul, Steve hike organized by Barb. Great views in every direction with cool jagged ridgeline!
Started from the summit th of the alpine loop and went up the ridge from horse flat. Summitted Roberts horn, then went down to emerald lake, up the glacier chute to the saddle, summitted south timp, then across to the actual timp summit, down timpanookee and back through salamander up to my car. Great 16 mile, 6.5 hour day.
I had a few extra minutes after visiting South Timp and the main summit so I swung by Roberts Horn. Well worth the detour.
Climbed with the Wasatch Mountain Club. We climbed to the summit ridge from the Emerald Lake shelter and enjoyed a fun scramble to the summit! A couple of inches of early season snow up high! Fall colors were awesome on the lower slopes!
Walked by this peak way too many times on my way to Timp Main. Beautiful views.
#1 7-16-13 Nifty little variation when the main summit becomes hum-drum. Fantastic views of East Peak, the Shoulder, Razorback Ridge, 2nd summit and the Main Summit, then north to Bomber Peak and North Timp. With Brent. Fun scrambling up the west ridge. #2 7-20-13 Reprise of last one meeting Ethan at the Timp Basin saddle! Beautiful wildflowers mityz along the way.
Via Timp divide, down Timponeke via the bomber, crisp sunny October day with a bit of new snow on the ground, memories fade....
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.
Great way to find a little solitude, probably only about 1% of the Timp climbers make their way over here! It was a nice add-on on the way back down from Timp.
Was waiting at the Emerald Lake shelter for some other folks in my party to descend Timp. Decided to give this one a try. Glad I did as I ran into a herd of mountain goats on the NW aspect. Took an incorrect way down and ended up in some steep scree slopes
I have climbed the peak a few times in the 1990's
