Mt. Timpanogos Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Ice on backside of Timp. (photo by Kempt).
Lecherous Leanings is on the North Pillar of the North Face of the North Peak of Timpanogos. As a reminder, this peak does have a 13 mile (!) summit ridge line. It is a huge mountain massiv. The North Pillar is a detached mountain in its own right on the right side of the North Face of the North Peak. Incredibly good access via a little known and little used mountain road totally open to the public. Oh, how we wish Lone Peak had an open road accessible for use like the old days!
Drive up American Fork Canyon to Timpooneke Campground (all paved). Continue up the road winding around numerous switchbacks until it becomes a dirt road. Continue driving on this road. Interestingly, this road is closed to ATVs and any non-street legal vehicles. Follow this rough road (I drove it no problem in a Subaru) for 3 miles. This road actually goes all the way to Utah Valley's Cedar Hills, but it is closed for access there. After driving this 3 mile stretch, The North Pillar will be directly above you up a talus slope. A 30-40 minute hike brings you to the base of the route.

Grunge Couloir is a steep snow chute on the NE end of Timpanogos. It's a great, direct way to reach the north summit of Timp and more aesthetic than it's neighbor, the Cold Fusion Couloir. The couloir is sustained in the 40-50 degree range with a short crux near the top that supposedly reaches 62 degrees.A helmet is definitely necessary as the couloir is known to spew rocks (typically a large runnel can be seen running down the center of the chute), so keep your ears and eyes open.As of May of 2...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
