ecallahanRoute Climbed: via Silver Lake Flat Date Climbed: 16 July 2005  Sucess!

ecallahan

Began in American Fork Canyon at Silver Lake Flats. Passed through many switch-backs and through an ATV gate. More switch-backs, passed by a mine and old car wreck up to saddle east of Twin's south sister. Summited the south sister (unnamed peak) and on to the Twins. Clear conditions but remaining cornices on the northern (Little Cottonwood Canyon) side. Looked down at Snowbird and realized our hike could have been a lot shorter from that side. But we built character. Clear views of Pfeifferhorn and Lone to the west.

We peaked the American Fork twins (the West Twin, we ran out of day light and energy to do the other two peaks) at the end of our three-peak trip. We started from Silver Lake Flat in American Fork Canyon and hiked the trail to Silver Lake, then went up the west ridge of White Baldy, opposite Silver Glance route. We then followed the ridge from White Baldy to Red baldy and then peaked Red Stack and the West Twin. It was a long hike but worth the view and the effort.

Summited both peaks from the knife edge ridge west of Hidden Peak. We started at the campground in Albion Basin. A beautiful fall day hike! Did these 2 peaks again on June 25 '07 from the Snowbird parking lot thru Gad Valley and from the west ridge via Red Stack and down the knife edged ridge to the east. Always a great hike.

I usually climb AF Twin Peaks when I'm hiking the Bullion Divide along with several other peaks. I think the knife-edge ridge is fun. The approach from Albion Basin is scenic and usually where I start from.

Did this peak with Craig Lloyd. We started at Snowbird and went over Red Stack. The views were great, but the wind was cold.

6/28/12- Sugarloag, Baldy, Hiddeen, AF Twins and Red Stack.

Did first from Alta, Cecret Lake, Baldy, etc. Second time was a simple walk up from the AF side. Drove up a 2WD dirt road to roughly 10,000 ft, and walked up the easy backside (over third summit), joking all the way about how "hardcore" we were.

Actually we summited Red Stack, the peak just to the east of AF Twin Peaks, but no one has submitted that mountain yet. I'll get to work on it.

Did this peak as part of the Bullion Divide Route. I started out at Sugarloaf, then did Mt Baldy, Hidden Pk, all 3 summits of the American Fork Twin Pks, Red Top, Red Baldy, and White Baldy. What a day! The NE face looks like it could have some pretty sweet spring snow climbs - I gotta check these chutes out later!

Nice scramble. I'd been wanting to do this peak for a while.

An interesting note - along the lower part of the ridgeline between the tram and American Fork Twin Peaks, on the rocks, there were bolts. I wonder what they'er used for, since exposure certainly didn't require placing protection. Maybe something to do with avalanche control?

MrWasatchRoute Climbed: Snowbird/Gad Valley Date Climbed: August 13, 1996  Sucess!

MrWasatch

Did solo climb of A.F. Twins via Snowbird/Gad Valley, and the Gad Valley/White Pine ridge. Some bushwhacking on the ridge, but once at about 10,000 feet, clear sailing up open, tundra and rock ridge right to summit of "Red Stack" (also called Red Top), then across ridge to true summit of A.F. Twin. Made short, easy trip to slightly lower east summit. Hope to go back soon and do this peak from the knife-edge ridge connecting it to Hidden Peak.

Left White Pine trailhead at 7:00 am, had lunch at the top by myself and decided to take the ridge down from East Twin to the ski runs. Made it back to the car while walking down the canyon road around 12:00.
