The High Camp Team meets at the Aspen Grove Trail Head at approximately 1700 Hr. and hikes the 5.5 miles to High Camp which is located in the Hidden Lakes area of Timpanogos. The High Camp Team spends the nights in camp and the daytime hours near the Emerald Lake Shelter and surrounding areas. The team is lead by a High Camp Team Leader who has the overall responsibility for the weekend. The Team consists of the leader, at least one communications person, one or two designated medical people (EMT’s, LPN, FR, etc.) and “runners.” Familiarity with ice axe use and other climbing equipment is important – especially early in the season. The Team stays on the mountain Friday night through Sunday afternoon regardless of weather conditions so you must be prepared for anything that may come along. Temperatures often go below freezing at these elevations.
