wadehbrownNortheast Ridge Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2011


Got off work early and met my friend at Snowbird where he had just finished a conference. We rode the tram to the top of Hidden Peak because it was already after 3pm. Weather was great so we went for the summits of the American Fork Twin Peaks via the Northeast ridge route. This route follows a knife edge ridge then up some steep, but easily manageable rock scrambling and finally up a scree field to the East (lower) summit. From there, it is a simple 10 minute walk across the broad ridge to the higher West summit. This is the highest point in Salt Lake County. It took us an hour and forty minutes to get up. We hung out for a bit then started back. We cut off the route just before the knife edge portion and dropped down into Gad Valley where we crossed some snow fields and descended the rest of the way down the resort. The scenery was amazing. Lots of snow (in AUGUST), very green, meadows and rivers everywhere. Saw lots of deer and three moose. Took us 2:14 to descend all the way back to the Cliff Lodge. Great trip, great weather, great scenery....

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2010
Hiked up Gad Valley Route, then up grassy slope to ridge, Red Top, and north to the summit. No one else was on the route while I was there, though a few parties were walking the ski resort roads in Gad Valley. Pretty straight forward summer scramble, little exposure.

Highlight of a loop with Baldy, Sugarloaf and Hidden. Met up with Mooner on the summit of Baldy and we went up the Northeast Ridge to the summit of American Forks Twin Peaks. He continued on the ridge, while I went down via Gad Valley back to the village and my car.

punchlineGad Valley Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2010


Climbed AF Twins via Snowbird resort - "Dick Bass Highway" to Gad Valley to Gad II and up ridge to Red Top and then over. Beautiful clear day - could see SLC valley as well as Timp and Nebo to the south.

Note: Road construction is currently happening on Gad Valley Road around the Mid-Gad Restaurant. They were pretty insistent that no one go up that part of the 4wd road due to the large backhoes, etc. that may be moving up and down the road. Possibly a better option, until work is completed, would be to go to the end of the "Dick Bass Highway" and bushwack up the basin in front of you veering to the right where you could pick up the Gad II trail and completely avoid the Gad Valley Road ... just a thought ...

East and West Twin and Red Top...knee surgery from 7 months prior has bothering me along with construction noises at the sky resort made for a rather lackluster day. Better than being at work though.

Awesome hike- parked at Snowbird center, up Gad Valley to Gad 2 to Red Top, to the Twins, then along the ridge back to HDP and down Peruvian Gulch. Beautiful weather, awesome hike. Would have continued to Baldy, but we went down to hit up Oktoberfest.

Date Climbed: Nov 7, 2009


Parked at 7900' up the MIneral Basin road, where it got so rough, I didn't wanna take my truck any further. Did American Fork East, West and South, and Haystack. Descended the northeast face of American Fork East down into Mineral Basin. Was snow covered and my top speed was 25.6 mph according to my GPS. Was quite a rush. Total round trip was 9.96 miles and I completed it in 4 hours 3 mins.

Took the tram up and did part of the Bullion Divide ridge traverse and hikes down white pine. Turned out to be 10 miles. The climb over to red baldly was interesting.
