Began from the Schoolhouse Springs trailhead, through the First Hamongog, then to the North Mountain Trail and up the Lake Hardy Trail. Scrambled from the north side of Lake Hardy, then to the saddle and up South Thunder. The views up there are amazing.

South Thunder  Sucess!

Did it as part of the Beatout. Scrambling along Lightning Ridge was fun. Amazing cliffs down into Hogum Gulch! Awesome views and good to be on the last summit of the day!

Beatout  Sucess!

Made the summit as part of the Beatout Hike with David and Kendrick. The views were among the best I've seen in the Wasatch, thanks in part to some cool, cloudy weather. See "Misty Mountains" trip report for details.

South Thunder Mountain  Sucess!

I did the Beatout Route with Brandon and Kendrick. It was an incredibly scenic route. It was a long day but worth it. (Pfiefferhorn, Upwop, Chipman, South Thunder).

2nd time - From North Thunder This Time  Sucess!

Came over from North Thunder this time. That ridge has a couple tricky spots but we managed to make it with no major issues. Headed down to Alpine via schoolhouse springs for a Little Cottonwood to Alpine traverse. Long, slow day, but gorgeous up there!

Note: Although coming up from Alpine is long, I believe it is much easier than coming up from any of the Little Cottonwood routes.

From Alpine  Sucess!

From Pfeifferhorn  Sucess!

Fun climbing from the low-point of the ridge to where it turns north, then kind of a slog. Continued to North Thunder and down Hogum Creek, which is kind of backwards. Trip report.

slog  Sucess!

As part of WMC group (Sam & Glen) on The Beatout. Too warm for the snow - it was soft & unsupportable.

Really windy and cold (via Alpine)  Sucess!

Ran up from Alpine via Schoolhouse Springs with Craig. Very runnable most of the way up. We did detour down to Lake Hardy (pretty amazing), but should have stayed up and to the left about a 1/4 mile before the lake instead of dropping down to the lake. We were intending to go on to North Thunder but 50+ mph winds and cold freezing hand made it a death wish. I was really disappointed to not make it over to North Thunder but we had a BLAST bombing down the mountain on the way down.
