Rocky Alps

Did this route with David and Kendrick. The views were among the best I've seen in the Wasatch, thanks in part to some cool, cloudy weather. See "Misty Mountains" trip report for details.

I did the Beatout Route with Brandon and Kendrick. It was an incredibly scenic route. It was a long day but worth it. (Pfiefferhorn, Upwop, Chipman, South Thunder).

With WMC group (organized by Julie). It was too warm for the snow to support us well. LIghtning Ridge to S Thunder Peak section was especially difficult due to post-holing, collapses etc. The descent through Bells Canyon was a wet slog. Glissading was minimal.

Pretty smoky day from regional fires so the views for much of the hike were pretty limited. Still a great trip. Didn't see anyone from Red Pine to below Upper Bells Reservoir.

8/4/2013 With the WMC. Awesome route. Long day.
5/11/2013 With the WMC. Thirteen hour day from the White Pine trailhead to the Bells Canyon trailhead. Still quite a bit of snow on the ridges coupled with unseasonably warm weather made for a very slow go. Soft, heavy, wet snow. Still a blast though.
6/3/2012 With the Wasatch Mountain Club, lead by byates. Total time 9 hrs. 15 min.

The author of this page and I did this route May 19, 2012.

It took us 3.5 hours to reach the Pfeifferhorn, about 40 minutes over to Upwop, 1.5 hours to Chipman, and 80 minutes to South Thunder. The "beatout" part of the trip was definately descending Bells Canyon, it took 3.5 hours to exit.

Being an unusually look snow year (2011/12 winter), and coupled with extra warm spring weather, we needed neither snowshoes nor crampons.

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2011
Started off to sugarloaf 4:30 am, Baldy, AF Twin Peaks, Red Baldy, White Baldy cut down to Upper Red Pine Lake to fill up on water, back up to Pfeifferhon, Upwop, Chipmans where I met a guy named Rick. We did South and North thunder together since it was our first time for both of us and he told me about this website. After coming back to South Thunder he departed down Bells and I finished the day off with Bighorn and Lone Peak. Reached Jacobs Ladder TH at 9:10 that night. Was a great day for an even greater ridge hike!

Did this with the WMC on a perfect spring day. We had a pretty fast pace, and I had a wardrobe malfunction on the way up the Pfeiff, so I only stayed on top for a few minutes, and I barely had time to catch my breath until we hit Chipman, where we took a 15 min break. This is an unbelievable hike, and I will do it again. We took a long break in Bells, and finished in 11 hours.

I've done the standard route about ten times, once in reverse and twice on what was called Cassie's Beatout, which goes up to lake Hardy, climbs South Thunder, foolows the ridge east, and then down Red Pine.

I did this along with the Bullion. The Beatout part was done mostly in the dark so I did not see the great views. I also ran up Lone peak while I was there.

Next in the winter and not by myself.

The lightning ridge was really fun and we did some pretty crazy scrambling as a "shortcut." Bell's was a long ways to come down though.

This has been on my list for a while. I’ve always wanted to combine the Bullion Divide and Beatout Hike in one day. I had done parts of the ridge so I was familiar with the terrain. My friend dropped me off at Albion Basin early in the morning. It started raining when I arrived at the summit of White Baldy but an hour later it was nice and sunny again. The part of the ridge located west of the Pfiefferhorn was very scenic. The hike down Bells Canyon was tiring since it was a hot day. I made it back to the trailhead in the dark. A long and rewarding ridge traverse!

What an outstanding trip! I did this one the first time by myself. The ridge was straigtforward and absolutely beautiful. At on point I moved too far out to the south and had to 5.5 my way up hundreds of feet back up to the ridge. Then came the fun part. Instead of going over into Bell's, I followed a cairn trail (because my guide told me to follow the cairn trail to Upper Bell's) to the South ending up in the town of Alpine. The hike was amazing and hitchhking back to Salt Lake was a lovely experience. Lessons learned? Never trust cairn trails from year to year and people in Alpine are not likely to pick you up even if you appear to be an inoccent, if slightly ragged and insane looking hiker.
