Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2010
|Climbed the north ridge from upper red pine lake. Fun 4th class. Descended the east ridge over to Red Baldy. The east ridge can be precarious, stay to the north side of the ridge for the easiest terrain.|

|builttospill||Not the East Face |
Date Climbed: Feb 1, 2009
|Approached the East Face with dunsum intending to climb a nice mixed rock and snow/ice route up the steep stuff. Awful sugar snow made it almost impossible to get established on the face, so we traversed off left after a couple of hundred feet and summited via the more mellow ridge.|

Date Climbed: Nov 7, 2009
|11/7/2009 Challenging hike due to conditions as the snow obscured the BIG holes between the gigantic boulders in the vicinity of Upper Red Pine Lake.|

5/21/2003 It's much better to do this one in the spring than fall.

|ambrose13||Silver Lake trail to east ridge. |
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2009
|A long day hike from Silver Lake Flat. Saw lots of wildlife, a moose, deer, wild grouse, beavers and a mountain goat. There is a nice spring still running this late in the year just above Silver Lake Glance to drink from on the way up and back. An exciting and challenging scramble from the east ridge. The only sketchy section being a very steep chute of loose rock and dirt near the top of the east ridge before the route veers northerly towards the true summit.|

|Gahugafuga||E Ridge |
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009
|Went up the E Ridge with a goodly amount of snow remaining from 9800' on up in White Pine basin. I descended the NW face through a maze of large boulders until finding several hundred feet of snow to glissade.|

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2009
|June 6, 2009 Climbed up the NW face directly below the true summit. Wandered to the east over to the false summit, then west to the true summit and down the otherside en route to Red Baldy as part of the Red/White/Red/White hike.|

|PocketsOfBlue||Ski mountaineering: North Ridge |
Date Climbed: May 3, 2009
|Summited as part of an arduous ski mountaineering day. Started from White Pine TR at 8:15, skied into White Pine fork and trended NW until I switchbacked up to the N Ridge. Eventually the skis came off and I booted it up the ridge to the summit.|
Was socked in the whole day, causing me to accidentally descend a ridgeline to the south rather than the east...turned into a seven-hour epic with a bonus ascent of Red Baldy.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 1995
|I usually do this peak in combination with Red Baldy, I've done well over a dozen climbs. I have lead a hike for the WMC called Red White Red White, about 10 times going up Red Pine to White Baldy, to Red Baldy and Down White Pine. I also have a White Red Silver Combo, climbing the South West Ridge via the Silver Flats area traversing to Red and the descending past Silver Glance and Silver Lakes, I've done that route twice.|

|Ascended via Red Pine lakes in beautiful weather. I attempted to traverse to Red Baldy and out via White Pine, but I neglected to study the route beforehand, and couldn't find a viable way down without getting cliffed out. Fun!|

Date Climbed: May 31, 2008
|5/30/09 Went back and ascended the line I glissaded last year. It was as fun as I thought it would be. I continued on to Red Baldy and down White Pine. That ridge is quite the scramble, made more interesting by the spring snow.|
5/31/08 What a great climb. The high snow year made for tons of snow still in upper Red Pine. This was a very beautiful sight. We ascended the west ridge, and I picked a glissade line down the north face just west of the summit. The line I picked might make a fun spring ascent line as well.

Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007
|This was my first time climbing White Baldy even though I have been near the mountain several times. I went up the Northeast Ridge and descended the West Ridge. I really like the scrambling on this peak. White Baldy is just as interesting as the Pfiefferhorn but is climbed less often.|

|The ridge between red and white baldy was really fun as was the north ridge to upper red pine lake that we took down. Excellent views. Definitely an under appreciated peak.|

|My 2nd time at the summit. With Brent and Lana leading out, we reached the summit in 2+40 (7-17-07). This was part of our Red White Red White climb. So we scrambled the ridgeline over to Red Baldy, then found a route down to White Pine. This entire exercise took us 7+30. A really great hike. My 3rd time on the summit was the result of a trek from the Granite Flats Campground, up to the top of Box Elder Peak, and then north along the entire ridgeline to the summit of White Baldy. It took Brent, Kim, Lana and me 7 hours to reach the White Baldy summit. That ridgeline is a classic. 5-13-08 4th time was a snow climb in combination with a summiting of Pfeifferhorn. From the summit of the Pfeiff to the summit of White Baldy was 2+30. This entire exercise took 10+45 from White Pine TH and back. Fabulous snow conditions for May 13th. 5th time (6-14-08) was a repeat of the Red/White/Red/White climb which adds Red Baldy and a descent to below White Pine lake. A WMC hike led by Lana, it took 8+25 and was fabulous to the max because of excellent consoidated snow conditions and a bluebird day. #6 6-22-10 W/ Dave. Bullion Divide in reverse to Snowbird Tram. 3 hrs to White Baldy summit, 9 total hours to the tram. Excellent snow when it was there! #7 5-31-11 W/ Dave & Christine. Record snowpack, 17" fresh, driving winds lifting spindrift to unbelievable heights above the ridges. #8 6-11-11 W/ Sharon, Bob, Dennis & Glen for WMC RWRW. 3+59 up. #9 5-5-12 Ein wunderbarer Weg, Cinco de Mayo zu feiern! Perfect consolidated snow on the western slope above Upper Red Pine Lake. #10 5-29-12 W/ Dave Prep hike for WMC RWRW. Crampons, ice ax up the entire west slope! Bluebird day. #11 6-8-13 WMC annual RWRW with excellent snow almost all the way to the top.|

|Curt||Fun scramble |
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2007
|Did this solo. *Great* fun! I walked up to Red Pine then scrambled up onto the ridge between Red Pine and White Pine, gaining the ridgeline probably just above the 11,000 ft contour. Some moves were real attention-getters. I saw several goat wallows along the way. Had a brief stare-down with one of the goats just short of the ridge. I wish I could move over rough terrain the way they do!|
Awesome views from the summit. I particularly enjoyed the views of Timp. I'm relatively new to the SLC area, and this was a great summit for helping me figure out where stuff is.

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.

|merrell||ROUTE; Upper Red Pine and West Ridge |
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.|

|apachedino||Great scrambling |
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.|
