Nice to do this one. A beautiful day but rain to the west made me go ahead and visit all three quickly and then go back down. Saw moose and deer, too.

KadeeFun Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2008


I really enjoyed this hike. I made the hike quite easy by riding the tram to Hidden Peak, but I had a ton of fun on the ridge. I did this one by myself. I met SP member, climbingchic, near the summit. It was a beautiful day and I had a blast.

Left trail in White Pine Canyon and headed up northwest ridge of Red Top Mountain then easy traverse to the Twins. The views from AF Twin Peaks and Red Top are some of the finest in the Wasatch. A very enjoyable and worthwhile hike.

Riding the tram up 3000 feet was like being in the Alps climbing. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah_climbing/little_cottonwood_canyon/american_fork_twin_peaks_216.htm

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2008


I went up via Gad Valley, and first summited red top mountain, then over to the west twin, and on to the east twin. Continued the traverse by decending via the northeast ridge. The climb took 3 hours up and 1.5 hours down.

PocketsOfBlueSpring climb -- East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2008


Wanted to do the Pipeline Couloir but was redirected by Snowbird ski patrol at about 9am. Kind of a bummer but we traversed East towards the backcountry gate and climbed the full East Ridge instead. Still a beautiful morning from the top of the Central Wasatch!

Fun knife-edge section. Hazy day, though, there must have been a fire somewhere. We did both Twins plus the "Bastard Son."

Tracyrushed trip from Hidden Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007


Five of us (my bro-in-law Ron Stagg, two nephews, Spencer Foutz & Walker Stagg, and my son Lance) took the 5 PM tram to Hidden Peak and arrived at Hidden Peak at 5:15 PM. All of us (except Ron who had hip problems) summited West Twin at 6:05 PM. We came up via the ridge and East Twin. On the way down we traversed the north face of East Twin (not recommended) and I got back in time to take the 7:00 tram ride down but since my hiking partners were not back yet I waited for the 7:30 tram. When they got there a micro burst hit the top of the mountain and we waited it out in the tram which turned out to be the last tram of the day.

merrellRoute Climbed: Gad Valley Gulch to White Pine Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2007


Awesome views in all directions, but smokey because of fires in Utah County. We could smell the smoke as it seemed to be blowing directly at Red Top. Knife edge on decent to the east was fun, but loose stuff at top of east peak was very unpleasant.

Moogie737Via the Pipeline chute, Snowbird  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2011


My 4th ascent of these towering giants which overlook Snowbird Ski Resort was my 2nd winter ascent. Thanks to Lana for excellent support and stamina. We attained the northern part of the ridge west of Gad Valley, then followed the ridge to the west twin and the east twin and then down to the low point on the gnarly spine which leads to Hidden Peak. A few spots were dicey. From there a cautious descent to the Road to Provo and back up to the tram for a respite from the swirling winds. Without crampons we would never have made it. TH to tram was @ 7 hrs. #5 on 5-20-08 with a 3:30 a.m. Gad valley start under a full moon slowly sinking in the southwestern sky. No wind (!) on the west summit. Had to hike down since the tram was not operational. Back to the car in 6+40 total time. Thanks to Dave & Lana. #6 8-5-08 w/ Brent, Lana & Dave. Our ridge run included Red Baldy and Haystack and the peak south from the east A.F. Twin Peak. Perfect day. #7 5-5-09 to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Ole! With Dave - booted first two hours, snowshoes to East Twin Peak, crampons down. Traversed the entire knife-edge spine on awesome if not scary corniced rock ridges. 4+00 to East Twin Peak. #8 5-15-10 W/ Walt. Heavy soft snow. Of course we bagged Haystack before the twins; 4+33 to west Twin. Boots to 9,400', then crampons. 2+40 back to White Pine TH. Gorgeous day. #9 6-22-10 W/ Dave. Part of reverse Bullion Divide from White Pine TH to White Baldy, Red Baldy, Haystack, the Twins and over to Hidden Peak & the welcome tram ride down. Crampons from Maybird bridge to just below White Baldy summit, then scrambling mixed with snow ridges, even on the knife-edge to Hidden Peak. Great day. 9+ hrs to tram. #10 on 10-2-10 w/ Brent & Jans from White Pine TH to saddle s of Haystack, then Haystack and the twins. Scurried across the knife-edge to Hidden Peak and took the tram down to a waiting Oktoberfest with oompah music at Snowbird resort. Perfect fall weather. #11 on 1-11-11 (!) w/ Dave & ZeeJay. 4+28 up, very cold, had to don crampons half way up the west side of Haystack (Red Top). 2+28 down via nw ridge of Haystack. #12 6-7-11 W/ Dave (& Brian & Christine on skis) from the Bird via the Pipeline Chute. Steeep! #13 7-10-12 W/ Brent. Part of reverse Bullion Divide as far as Hidden Peak. 0+50 from East AF peak to Hidden Peak. #14 & #15 7-9-13, 7-11-13 on nice weather days from White Pine TH over Red Top and on to Hidden, Mt. Baldy (& Sugarload on the 9th) and then ride tram down - the only way to go down!

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2004


My wife and I hiked this one from Snowbird and took the tram down. The ridge line definitely looks worse than it actually is. We enjoyed the hike and the great views. This summit put us one peak away from completing the UT county highpoints.
