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.
Route Climbed: Red Pine Date Climbed: August 24, 2002
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!
