Roberts Horn is a rugged peak within the Timpanogos Massif. The summit is located northeast of summit of Mount Timpanogos. Roberts Horn is typically a secondary destination to the summit of Mount Timpanogos, but views from its summit surpass any that can be found elsewhere in the Timpanogos Massif. Roberts Horn is named after Gene “Timp” Roberts, an enthusiastic Wasatch explorer that was born in Provo in 1880. Gene started the annual Timp Hike in 1912, which climbed the mountain from Aspen Grove. Keep in mind the hiking trail was not constructed until 1921 and the road approaching the trailhead was not paved until 1937. There are no official trails up Roberts Horn, but a faint hiker’s trail exists, which provides easy access up the southwest ridge, from Emerald Lake to the summit. More exposed and technical terrain is found on the north ridge and the east face. The east face contains the steepest routes on the mountain, including the East Couloir and Timpanogos Couloir. The east face is rarely climbed or skied, but successful attempts have been made when the conditions are right.
