seanpeckhamRoute Climbed: White Pine headwall, down Red Pine headwall  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


What a fantastic hike! I believe this mountain is underappreciated. It doesn't have the pointy prominence of nearby Pfeifferhorn, but is only 5 feet shorter and has excellent scrambling and a variety of snowy ascent options.

I climbed up the smaller of the two main snowfields leading to the east ridge, dropped to the south side eventually to avoid the increasing exposure and saw a black bear lumber across. Regained the ridge just west of the summit via a notch. Descended down the main "couloir" into Red Pine.

A wonderful adventure.

merrellROUTE; Upper Red Pine and West Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2006


Beautiful views of north end of Utah Valley and Utah Lake and surrounding mountains. Desended the north ridge bordering White Pine for a short distance, then to east side of upper Red Pine Lake. Did hike with "bignick". The view of White Baldy from the towns of American Fork and Lehi will give you an idea of how awesome this hike is.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2006


Attacked the north face boulder field via white pine. Great scrambling over huge boulders, the last bit up to the notch had alot of loose rock this late in the seasn so be warry of your partner, after that there was some fun scrambling on solid granite slabs on the south side to the top, very enjoyable with a sense of solitude lacking from some of the nearby peaks.

A wonderful climb, dancing on precarious bolders all the way to the summit. Exposure keeps you focused. You can't help but to learn a lot about yourself on this climb.

My will power was nearly gone when I saw the ominous White Baldy looming in the distance. I sucked it all up and headed up the ridge. I am glad that I did, and I will return to hike it again.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2005


July 25, 2005 - Hiked up to the Pfeiff via red lake, West facing ridge looked like some fun scrambling so we ascended the west ridge up to white baldy. A few bouldering moves along the way, kept it interesting. Came down the north ridge of white baldy and had some nice downclimbing with great exposure!

Pleasantly surprised by the challenging scrambling and exposure on the ridge. Total solitude, great views!

maraudersOne of my favorite mountains  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 6, 2006


The West Ridge was awesome, coming down the north face was even better. This mountain remains one of my favorites in the Wasatch. It's central location provides outstanding views. There were also thunderstorm clouds that began to build in the late morning, and filter through Dry Creek basin, below White Baldy. The clouds provided a surreal setting that made the climb even better.
The west ridge in winter/spring conditions gets 5 stars in my book. Highly recommended.

7/4/11 - Climbed the north side of the west face with Brian. Had to get out quick because of bad weather moving in. Snow conditions were perfect!

5/30/09 - Climbed as part of the Red/White/Red/White. The ridge between Red & White Baldy is incredible! Ascended the west face directly to the summit ridge.

5/31/08 - Climbed with Ammon Hatch and Jared. It turned out to be a picture perfect day with perfect snow conditions. This is definitely one of my favorite mountains in the Wasatch.
Route - Red Pine / West Ridge.

5/6/06 - Climbed the west ridge with Matt and Alan. Beautiful Day and fantastic views.
Route - Red Pine / West Ridge.

maraudersRoute Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: July 16, 2005  Sucess!


Outstanding mountain! I had never been to the south side of White Baldy and I'm sad it took me so long to discover. Silver Lake is truly spectacular. Route was fun and snow was in good shape for mid-July. The views are probably the best I've seen in the Wasatch because of the mountain's central location. You have big peaks on every side. Highly recommended!

jkendal2Route Climbed: From Silver Lake American Fork Canyon Date Climbed: July-6-2005  Sucess!


We started from Silver Lake Flat and hiked the trail to Silver Lake, from Silver Lake we headed up the western side of White Baldy (opposite Sliver Glance route). The route takes you along the south west ridge up to the summit of White Baldy. The snow is still deep and cramp-ons would have been nice, better then kicking steps. A very fun hike.

Picking through the huge boulders on the north face and the ridge was very memorable. Dunked ourselves in one of the little lakes above Red Pine and froze.

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Ascended from East, descended White Pine Date Climbed: July 27, 2004  Sucess!


Did this peak as part of the Bullion Divide Route. I started out at Sugarloaf, 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! I much preferred the east ridge to the NW - it was a bitch coming down!

rmjwintersRoute Climbed: White Pine Date Climbed: Various  Sucess!


Climbed White Pine 2-3 times in the past 5 years. This is indeed a seldom visited summit in the Wasatch. Most people hike to White Pine Lake and stop there. Others hike to Red Pine en route to Pfeifferhorn. It is a great summit with excellent views of Pfeifferhorn and Mount Timp.

MrWasatchRoute Climbed: Red Pine Date Climbed: August 24, 2002  Sucess!


Followed trail to Red Pine Lakes, then to basin above with upper Red Pine Lakes. Routefind up to northwest ridge. From here there was some challenging scrambling in spots, then a steep, rocky climb to the main summit area. Typically wonderful views. We descended the north face directly to the boulder-strewn upper Lakes meadow, not recommended! Getting out of the boulder field took a long time!
