Grunge Couloir is on the right end of the mountain as pictured. Look for 2 forks that form what looks like a wishbone. The two forks meet 2/3 of the way up at which point the couloir steepens and jogs right. Exiting the couloir you'll encounter the crux face (60+ degree snow) and possibly a massive cornice.

Grunge Couloir Steep Snow  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Mt. Timpanogos
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 UT

Does anyone know if there are any climbing lines on Guert's Ridge? (Guerts is on Mt. Olympus and is the the rock that starts halfway up the mountain and goes to the top.) Guerts is only one line of many that are waiting to be climbed. Anyone have ideas, suggestions or the drive to explore??

Guert's ridge does have a route in fact, Guerts Ridge 5.5 (Irene Guert,O'dell Peterson, Harold Goodro 1940's!)!" It's a fun one too, especially in winter for added flavor. Check out the description in the Mt Olympus section. My favorite of the olymps slogs...as it ends right on the summit and has some fun moves interspersed with log, but aesthetic easy sections. a great solo (though you must carry a rope for the raps)
