Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: Sept 17, 2004
I usually climb Red Baldy while hiking the Bullion Divide. I had to climb up two talus chutes along the ridge but it wasn't as bad as it looked. Hiked with my friend Chris who was tired of boulder hopping all day but he tried his best to have fun. The summit view of White Baldy and the rest of ridge is great.

Did this peak as part of the Bullion Divide Route. I started out at Sugarload, 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 of this peak looks like it could contain some nice spring snowclimbs - I gotta come back up here!
Route Climbed: East Ridge via Bullion Divide Date Climbed: June 2002
Nice scramble, although I do wish that I had a helmet on the climb! Descended via White Pine Fork - a very long boulder-hopping extravaganza down to the trail and then a nice 3mph stroll back to the car.
Got back to SLC and had a celebratory late lunch with my Wasatch Mountain Club comrads at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon and showered. I love how the Wasatch Mountains give you teh opportunity to do those things on the same day as the climb!
