Fun scrambling up to East Twin! Climbed the East Twin, South Twin, and West Twin. More like Triple than double. Awesome summits! Highest in Salt Lake County! [edit: went back and did pk 11007 after finding out it existed. Nice and easy!]

THE VIEWS OF TIMPANOGAS ARE STUNNING FROM HERE!!!! STUNNING I TELL YOU! A strom was moving in, I was mesmerized by the mist engulfing the mountain. The ridge up from Hidden Peak was a blast! I really did love this mountain. The black rock on the ridge was stunning, and reminded me of being on volcanic rock around St. George. Well done AF Twins, Well done!

I cheated and took the tram up to hidden peak. Knife ridge was fun. Past the ridge was a lot easier up than I thought it would be. Mostly a walk-up once you are past the black rocks. Did red-top and some clouds started to form so I went back down the way I came up and took the tram. Ran into quite a few other people up on the ridge. Convinced two guys to come back to the tram instead of going back down they way they came up (gad valley to the ridge that goes up to between red-top and west twin). Fun hike back down with them. They were glad they came with me. I was glad to have some company. Another group of 3 kids were going to do the bullion divide but the clouds deterred them. Perfectly clear weather in the valley; Gnarly clouds in early afternoon up on the mountains. Typical monsoon season weather.

Hey Harbor, I'm hearing about construction at the Bird. It sounds like the trail hasn't been closed if you were just on it. Do you know about any construction going on up there?

The trail up Peruvian Gulch is closed to the top, as is the trail up Gad Valley because of construction. You can ride the tram to the top. They are doing construction up on top of Hidden Peak. I am unsure how long the closure will last at Snowbird. If I hear anything I can pass it on.

I did this as part of the Bullion Divide (Hidden Peak to White Baldy). The route up included a knife edge ridge and then some scrambling. On top the route between the East and West twin was pretty mild.

Rocky Alps

Did as part of the Bullion Divide (took Snowbird Tram up to Hidden peak, then scrambled over AF Twin Peaks, Red Top, Red Baldy, & White Baldy, then descended down White Pine). The scrambling along the northeast ridge of American Fork Twin Peaks was short but fun. See "Good As Gold" trip report for details.

We did a nice loop. Followed the service roads to the top of Gad 2 lift. Then reached the ridge to the West and followed it up to Red Top, then over to West twin and East Twin. Then we followed the ridge East down to Hidden Peak and followed the Ridge Trail/Peruvian Trail back to Snowbird. The views on top American Twin Peaks and Red Top are spectacular! We really enjoyed this one!

Up the Gad Valley Trail for 3 hours with an excursion on the steep snow slopes to gain the service road right below the tram. Had to scramble up the sketchy slope to the ridge and go from there. TH-to-summit was about 3.5 hours. The west twin to Hidden Peak took about 30 minutes.

bulletbikeguyTwin Peaks via Ferguson Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2010

bulletbikeguy

I completed this with a small group after attempting solo and running out of daylight a month earlier. The Ferguson route, which I don't see listed, is pretty gnarly. It took our group an entire day, sun up to sun down, but it's highly rewarding due to starting in the Salt Lake Valley and ending in Broadfork after ascending and traversing multiple peeks. If you attempt this you want to get started well before sunrise or risk getting stuck in the dark descending a scree field.

Went via the tram to Hidden Peak and in shorts, which was a bad idea. A storm moved in and it was a cold time. Hidden Peak lived up to its name and our visibility was almost nill. But the knife edge ridge is a decently enjoyable climb and I got fantastic storm pictures. You can go for free one weekend each year via tram with the Snowbird canned food drive, or go during Octover Fest and finish with a beer after.

    We started at snowbird and hiked up through Gad valley. I loved all the wild flowers and the rocks on Red Top were so cool. I was relieved to find that going between the two peaks was so easy since I was a little worn out by the time we go there. We came down the other side towards the tram. Rather than going along the ridge line though we slid down to the road and ran back up that to the tram.
