Climbers Protect Every Child met at the Timpooneke Trailhead at 4 a.m.
They came prepared by packing enough food and water, wearing good hiking shoes, and wore their clothing in layers. There was still a lot of snow left in the mountains, and they definitely encountered snow on the ground during this hike.
Trail Length (Round-trip); 14.3 miles
Elevation Gain: 4,389 feet
Climb from 7,360 ft to 11,749 feet for a total of 4,389 feet elevation gain. They allowed many extra hours to complete the climb, due to anticipated trail congestion due to the Pioneer Day holiday.

Status Update Posted on Protect Every Child’s Facebook Page By Sam Young
“Great hike up Timpanogos today. Nine in our climbing party. Eight of us made it to the first big snow field which is a little past the 3 mile point of the trail. Attempted to cross. After slipping, sliding and falling all but one turned back. That one, Tyler Slack, made it to the summit and was about to do an FB live broadcast from the very top of Timp.
BTW, no Temple-side Chat tonight. They start in earnest tomorrow at 7pm across the street from the SLC Temple.”
Status Update Posted on Facebook by Tyler Slack
(24 Jul 2019) Made it to the top of Timp this afternoon to raise awareness for Protect Every Child! Conditions were a little sketchy, but I didn’t do anything stupid. I was completely safe.
I ran back down the trail so I could get back to Rio Tinto Stadium to work a soccer game. That caused some minor complications because I was on my motorcycle and it was HOT! Usually par for the course and something I deal with in the summer, but due to my physical state after running down the mountain and add to that a motorcycle jacket and a hot summer day in the valley, I started feeling sick.
With just a couple of minutes left in my commute to work from the mountain, I had to pull over, throw off my helmet and hurl. I made it the rest of the way to work and drank a ton of water and ate some pizza and cooled off and I’m feeling TONS better! It was all worth it for the children!
10 more hikes with my favorite one happening tomorrow. We’re riding the Snowbird team to the top of Hidden Peak and then we’re going to bag Mt Baldy while we’re up there. Should be a lot easier than today’s hike.
