Timpanogos West Ridge

Went out with a buddy and hit a line I have eyed since I moved here. It is a favorite to hike in the summer time due to the wildflowers and the fact there is a permanent snowfield.

We got an early start with a 3 AM wake up to head up the peak. We hiked 6,900 vertical feet according to my GPS watch.


Looking down on Happy Valley, Provo.


Timp is special


Looking towards the summit.


Love shack on the summit.




Joey riding down


Love the corn harvest


There was a bit of walking out unfortunately, but we did find a bunch of dead goats caught up in avalanches earlier in the season.




Timpanogos and all of her glory.

Little video Joey threw together.

Yea we rode down with axes. Up top it was firm and pretty steep. The run funneled into a steep waterfall and there were a few no fall zones coming down.

Nice work and nice edit. How long did those 6900 feet take you to boot up?

Those dead goats explain why I have yet to see one in 3 years of playing in the wasatch. They all go to provo to die!

We went car to car in 11 hours. We really took our time on the way up then hung out trying to let the sun corn the stuff around the peak up for about an hour. If you haven't done Timp in the summer I highly recommend it. You will see goats if you look hard enough. I have every time I have been up there.
