apachedinoFun long day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2005


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!

Successful trip with Ammon Hatch from Red Pine, over the P-Horn, unnamed west of Pfeiff, Chipman Peak, across Lightning Ridge, topped off at S. Thunder, and beat it out of Bells Canyon.

HighCountryOops....Red Pine to Alpine  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2004


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.

A beautiful alpine route. Stopped at Upper Bells for a fish fry which made for WAY too long a day...6am to 2am.

Red Pine to Pfeifferhorn to Bells. Lightning Ridge is spectacular. Saw goats along the way.

We did the route at a brisk walk sunrise to sunset. A lot of deadfall and debris in Bells. Would love to do it on skis someday.

I have had the priviledge of doing this classic Wasatch Mountain Club ridge run many times over a thirty year period. I think the first time was 1975 or 1976 and I remember that I wore a borrowed climbing helmet!

Harold Goodro lead this trip for the Wasatch Mountain Club. Our biggest problem was crossing the swollen stream in White Pine (no bridge) and dealing with the crossings in Bells - Lightning Ridge was spectacular!
