I did this as part of the Bullion Divide (Hidden Peak to White Baldy). The route up this peak from the East (coming from Red Baldy) was a long, sustained scramble. White Pine lake below was really impressive. We descended down to White Pine lake and it was rough going through what seemed like endless boulders and steep terrain. The peak looks really impressive.

Rocky AlpsBullion Divide  Sucess!

Rocky Alps

Did as part of the Bullion Divide (took Snowbird Tram up to Hidden peak, then scrambled over AF Twin Peaks, Red Top, Red Baldy, & White Baldy, then descended down White Pine). This last part of the Bullion Divide had the most sustained scrambling, and overall this peak was a beast. We went straight over the east ridge between the lower east summit and the main summit, then decided to try an easier way back by looping around and losing some elevation in the tree/shrub maze to the south, which probably ended up being more tiring. We then cut across the north face and descended the steep, loose scree/talus slope to get down to White Pine Lake. From there we had some route-finding issues getting back to the White Pine trail/road (assumed a trail would lead to the lake, but there wasn't one), so didn't get back to the cars until it was getting dark. See "Good As Gold" trip report for details.

Had planned on tagging Pf.horn and continuing on the Lightning ridge towards Chipman, S. Thunder, et al, but the rain-slick granite was giving my "morphoshambolic" shoes (read: La Sportiva Quantums) serious trouble so I turned back.

However, the drying conditions gave me pause, and I decided to give White Baldy a try from the west ridge.

Easily one of the funnest scrambles available to humanity in the Wasatch. Just the athletic, aerobic, cruiser scramble I had been looking for.

I chose the Red Pine trail for this trip. My friend was feeling ill so she decided to wait at Upper Red Pine Lake for me. I scaled the ridge that links White Baldy to the Horn and made it to the summit in a little over an hour. That ridge was a lot of fun! I spend a good while on top and came straight down the face. I would highly recommend this descent option. It was a lot of fun class 3 downclimbing and glissading on patches of snow. Get a DQ blizzard after you go to solidify your awesomeness.

Red-white-red-white with WMC. Started Red Pine, climbed the North Face direct to the summit on the snowfield (crampons / ice axe req'd). Descended along the ridge and bagged Red Baldy, then descended via White Pine.

On Bullion Divide traverse. Both the east and north ridges had some fun 3rd class (and harder if you wanted it).

This one is a beast from every trail and direction. I have nearly hit the summit from several and reached it along the ridge from Pfeifferhorn. That ridge is a great time, but I'd try this peak in winter to avoid the hours of sweaty bouldering.

We started at White Pine trail and I loved that trail. From the lake the rocks were, um, tiring. It took awhile to get to the top and I was so happy to finally make it. We enjoyed the view for way too long and suddenly realized we were looking at the most amazing sunset. Sunset? Crap! After a rush down to Red Pine lake before total dark, we were lucky to borrow a flashlight and make it home with no falls. New rule for me, bring a light.

runbyu1Up White Pine, Down Red Pine in the dark  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2012

We ran and hiked up White Pine trail to just above the lake and then left the trail as soon as we saw the lake and headed up for the ridge. It only took us 90 minutes to get to the lake, but the scramble from there to the summit took us nearly 2 1/2 hours due to some bad lines on the way up. I think we stayed on the North side of the ridge too long and got stuck on very slow terrain with lots of exposure sections.
We didn't realize we were out of light for some reason and ended up going down Red Pine and made it through the massive boulder fields in just over an hour down to Upper Red Pine lake just as it got dark. Luckily we were able to borrow a flashlight from some guys that were camping---saved our lives. The trek down in the dark would've been precarious. Happy to be back in one piece. Had a great time!

6/2/2013 Via Red Pine to the Pfeifferhorn and traversed to White Baldy. Climbed with the WMC on a fantastic day. Great consolidated snow up to the Pfeifferhorn, and very nice soft snow to glissade off of the top of White Baldy. We were able to glissade the 1300 feet of vertical to upper Red Pine Lake in two long shots. And then another great glissade to Red Pine Lake.
9/23/2012 Came up Red Pine to the Pfeifferhorn and then traversed over to White Baldy. Very fun little section of ridge between the two. Very windy, it looked like it could storm at anytime or I would have liked to continue on this ridge to Red Baldy. Descended back to Red Pine Lake.
7/15/2012 Climbed White Baldy via Red Pine Lake w/ WMC.

As I climbed up to the ridge and saw the true summit, I noticed some rain clouds approaching but figured I had enough time to make it. Several steps away from the summit I heard something that sounded like a rattlesnake. I took another step and there were more buzzing sounds and I could feel static in my boots and on the rocks. I went back down during light rain and thunderstorms as fast as I could.

Came across after hiking Pfeifferhorn. Probably could have picked better lines through the boulders on the West side but still made it fine. Stumbled on a goat; surprised that he let me get that close, I certainly wasn't being quiet.

Had planned on continuing to Red Baldy but had to abort due to time constraints. Fun glissading down to the Red Pine lakes.

Twice. My favorite scramble in the Wasatch. North face is an outdoor playground. Upper Red Pine lake is a gem.
