Southwest face from Alpine trailhead  Sucess!

I had an evening commitment, so vanman and I got a 5 am start, and in just under 12 hours climbed S Thunder and Bighorn Peak. The mountain was still snowy even on south aspects above ~9500' and we hardly had to walk on any talus. South Thunder was a very nice snow climb, and has some of the best views in the Wasatch. We had some decent glissading too. There was a mountain goat on the summit as we approached.

Via School House Springs - June 14, 2008:Sean Peckham and I climbed this one via the Lake Hardy/School House Springs route from Alpine. Since we were in the neighborhood, we also bagged Bighorn Peak. We covered over 13 miles, and over 6400 ft of vertical. View our summit video.

Easter hike  Sucess!

Went up and down South Thunder in an afternoon on Easter Sunday 2008. Started from Alpine and encountered excellent snow conditions, though I got roasted by the sun all afternoon. Did the ~11 mile round trip solo in just over six hours.

Through Bells  Sucess!

Climbed with Steve Bohman. We had a great day, although it was very windy on top. We decided to go down the Alpine side, which did not seem any faster and it was very hot and dry on that side. (See trip report)

Beatout Hike  Sucess!

My last summit of the day during a long traverse on the Alpine Ridge. I was pretty tired by the time I made it to the top of South Thunder Mountain. The descent down Bells Canyon took longer than expected due to route finding.

South Thunder  Sucess!

The ridge from North Thunder to South Thunder offered some fun climbing. Hiked with Grizz and Asher as our second peak of our trip around the Quad.

ROUTE: ALPINE TRAILHEAD  Sucess!

Late snow storm dropped 2 feet of snow and we couldn't pass it up. Hiked up Friday night to Lake Hardy, camped above lake hardy about 400' and headed up to South Thunder the next morning. Lake hardy was completely frozen...

Route:Part of Beatout  Sucess!

Exciting to finally get this one since it is plainly visible from my backyard. Very fun scrambling on the lighning ridge. Should have left earlier we got a real late start and descended bells from the upper meadow in the dark, fortunately I know that part like the back of my hand. Can't wait to do N. Thunder from Coalpit, it is next on my list.

Great conclusion to the Beatout before descending to Upper Bells. Can't wait to do N. Thunder one of these days.

Bells Canyon madness  Sucess!

Started with Moogie737 and Brent at 7:30, got to the upper Bells reservoir in 2:45, and had the rest of the trip above there to ourselves. I think I must have drunk over 2 gallons of water going up and coming down. 102F or so when we got back to the car! We smelled terrific.
