Mount Olympus North Views


Wasatch Mountains
Salt Lake City, Utah

A small snow storm had lightly dusted the mountains, making their features stand out much clearer in 3D. I had been researching routes on the north side of Mount Olympus and decided that now would be the time to take pictures to analyze in the future.

The rocks looked frosted like they had been left in the freezer. It really clarifies the contour of the rocks. If you are looking for routes etc. these pictures might help.

The North Face is rich in history with Harold Goodro and O'Dell Peterson exploring the area in the 1930's.

A more direct view.
The route up the North Face Trail is visible starting on the bottom left,
then reaching the base of the Great Chimney on the left of the peak.
From there you cut diagonally upward to the ridge.
From there you would follow the skyline to the Northern Sub-Peak,
then rock climb 5.4 up to the summit of the diamond tipped North Peak.
