Timpanogos via Everst Ridge

Postby Katie » Mon Mar 05, 2007 6:17 pm

Has anyone here climbed this route in the winter? I am wondering how strenuous it is and any other general info that would be helpful. Thanks!

A guy I've climbed with a few times did Timp in Feb a few years back. Here is his trip report. He's known for some extreme death marches, and this looked to be one of them. So if you're up for a long day with lots o suffering, go for it.

I've climbed the ridge just to the south if you are intersted:

http://www.summitpost.org/route/162892/ ... ation.html

Both the Everest and Ginsu Ridges are steep routes and very long days.

Both ridges gain around 3000 feet in just over a mile and the total elevation gain for either route is over 6600 feet over only a few miles.

If you aren't really fast, it pays to set up a camp at the Baldy Saddle and doing the route in 1 1/2 days.
