aprovanceRed Baldy via Silver Glance Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2009


Couldn't have been a better day to hike! The overcast skies made this hike so much more pleasant. Our goal was just to hike up to Silver Glance Lake, from Silver Lake Flat Reservoir trailhead, but once there, we felt great, so we decided to go straight up the red scree and talus to the summit. It wasn't as hard as I had expected although it was easily a 45-50 degree slope right up the front face from Silver Glance. Nothing scary. Class three once we got to the red talus. We just did some route finding and basic scrambling from there to the top. The scrambling was very fun. Beautiful views of White Pine Lake, Silver Glance, Silver Lake, and Silver Lake Flat, and even Tibble Fork Reservoir at the summit. We wanted to head up to White Baldy, but storm clouds chased us off the summit to lower ground.

With Vanman. Went up White Pine Canyon. We made it to the lower peak just west of the summit. We were pretty much worn out at that point, and it was getting late. I couldn't join the return group the following week, unfortunately.

Glad I did some other higher summits this day. Red needed to be done but others on the ridge are higher/better. Report at http://www.willhiteweb.com/wasatch/pfeifferhorn/little_matterhorn_196.htm

June 6, 2009 summited Red Baldy again, but this time it was part of the Red/White/Red/White.

November 29, 2008 I got within 300 vertical feet of the summit, but high winds, grauple, and time constraints caused us to turn around.

So the next Saturday, December 6, 2008 I went back with a group from Utah Outsiders, and summited on a gorgeous clear day!

Postholed my way to the top in ankle to knee deep snow on an otherwise perfect day. It looks like one other lonely soul had summited since the snow began to accumulate this fall.

Best scrambling of the Bullion Divide route (going from east to west, at least), in my opinion, and a good climax to the route.

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2007


Day of extremes. From trail to bushwacking to boulder hopping to scrambling, then back to bushwacking and trail. Came northwest down ridge from summit directly to trail about 1/4th mile from where we left the trail earlier (1 1/2 mile from lake). Did only the east summit. Great hike, really great views. Hiked with "bignick".

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2012


4th time on the summit(s) of Red Baldy. Once solo, once with Brent & Lana on the Red/White/Red/White hike, on 5-14-08 with L & A, and today (June '08). Snow conditions, considering the mid-June date, were excellent; we had to don crampons from abeam lower Red Pine lake until the White Baldy summit. From there to Red Baldy we got away with mountaineering boots and careful scrambling. Great glissade off of Red Baldy. Entire route took 8+25 from White Pine TH. #5 8-5-08 with Dave, Lana & Brent. First peak of ridge run including Haystack, American Fork Twin Peaks (and the A.F. South), and the spine to Hidden Peak. Then relaxed and let the Tram take us down. #6 7-30-09 From White Pine TH & up the slope from 10,000' point on the road. 2+40 up W/ Brent. #7 W/ Dave as part of reverse Bullion Divide from White Pine TH to Snowbird Tram. 9+ hrs total. Scrambling and snow. #8 6-11-11 W/ WMC team after White Baldy. Dicey snow conditions on ridge bewteen White Baldy and this summit. Record snow pack very much in evidence. Glassades down west side wet, sloppy and oodles of fun. But IVD conditions... #9 5-29-12 W/ Dave. Part of RWRW prep climb for pending WMC hike. Bluebird day. Dicey sectons of ridge with scary snow between White Baldy and the summit of Red. #10 W/ Brent. Part of Buillion Divide to Hidden Peak. 2+50 to Red Baldy from White Pine TH. #11 6-8-13 With WMC on RWRW. Great glissades on the lower 2/3 of the west face. #12 6-7-14 Annual WMC RWRW; tricky ridge work between WB & RB. Jemand war abwesend, leider...

Record-breaking warm March temperatures have contributed to a sustained high avy danger in the Wasatch, but have also made the high country mighty appealing. Lee Johnson and I headed up White Pine and ended up on top of Red Baldy on this gorgeous St. Patricks Day!

The scrambling up to the peak on this one is great. This was one of my favorite summits on the Bullion Divide.

Went with my good friend Jackson. We started to go up one of the couloirs on the North face, and then a couple of rocks came tumbling down at a high rate of speed and made us re-think our prospects. We found a steep slope on the west shoulder that was still in the shade and climbed up to the ridge. The snow was hard and firm. The ridge was corniced in places and slightly sketchy, but not too bad. Just before the summit we saw Marauders glissading down the south side. We did not see another person all day until we reached the Red Pine trail junction. Had some great glissades and the conditions were perfect. Epic day!! (See trip report.)

Great climb. Lots of fun. The south face was majority 35 degrees, with the upper section at 40 degrees. The glissade down was top notch!
