The North Summit of Mt. Olympus is slightly lower than the main South summit, at 8,959 feet. It is the complex shield of low angle quartzite seen from most of Salt Lake City. On the far right is the West slabs, and rising up on the left skyline is a ridge called Kamp's Ridge. The Great Chimney also climbs a line up to the North Summit, right of Kamp's. With the massive amounts of rock here, some first ascents could definitely be possible too.
The trailhead for this side of Mt. Olympus is the same as for Neff's Canyon. Take 3800 South east from Wasatch Blvd. (towards Mill Creek Canyon). At the stop sign, take a right on Park View Drive. After several changes in direction on this road, take a left on Park Terrace, and then a right on White Way which leads to the obvious Neff's Canyon trailhead parking.

This route is a good adventure route. There are no particular sections of brilliant climbing, however the route in its entirety is good. Know how to climb chimneys, and you'll send easily. There isn't a need to lug any big cams up there, as there are gear possibilities everywhere.Iv'e heard this route is good in March, as a consolidated snow climb.You can rap the route via multiple sections of bomber stainless steel anchors. Thanks goes out to whomever drilled those bolts! -tda ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
