harborGetting out of the summer heat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2014

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.

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.

    Came up via Gad Valley so we could get Red Top along the way. I was very surprised that I could not find a climbers log anywhere considering what a well-known peak this is. I was also surprised that we didn't see a soul from Red Top to Hidden Peak despite it being the July 4th holiday in the middle of the day with perfect weather (high 70's and sunny). I did a speed push from the East Twin to the South in 5 minutes, took a breather and ran back in 5:30...pretty much hit a wall on the way back ha ha. We then descended down the Northeast Ridge route down crazy steep crap to the mineral basin use road and back up to Hidden Peak before calling it a day. Good stuff.

    I walked up the resort to where the tram goes to at about 10,000 feet and some guy asked if I walked up there...of course I did! And then I pointed to where I was going. I loved the traverse over the knife edge ridge. Thanks Twins!
