Twin Peaks via Ferguson Canyon  Sucess!

I completed this with a small group after attempting solo and running out of daylight a month earlier. The Ferguson route, which I don't see listed, is pretty gnarly. It took our group an entire day, sun up to sun down, but it's highly rewarding due to starting in the Salt Lake Valley and ending in Broadfork after ascending and traversing multiple peeks. If you attempt this you want to get started well before sunrise or risk getting stuck in the dark descending a scree field.

In a Snowstorm  Sucess!

Went via the tram to Hidden Peak and in shorts, which was a bad idea. A storm moved in and it was a cold time. Hidden Peak lived up to its name and our visibility was almost nill. But the knife edge ridge is a decently enjoyable climb and I got fantastic storm pictures. You can go for free one weekend each year via tram with the Snowbird canned food drive, or go during Octover Fest and finish with a beer after.

    Twin Peaks  Sucess!

    We started at snowbird and hiked up through Gad valley. I loved all the wild flowers and the rocks on Red Top were so cool. I was relieved to find that going between the two peaks was so easy since I was a little worn out by the time we go there. We came down the other side towards the tram. Rather than going along the ridge line though we slid down to the road and ran back up that to the tram.

    Summit Register?  Sucess!

    Came up via Gad Valley so we could get Red Top along the way. I was very surprised that I could not find a climbers log anywhere considering what a well-known peak this is. I was also surprised that we didn't see a soul from Red Top to Hidden Peak despite it being the July 4th holiday in the middle of the day with perfect weather (high 70's and sunny). I did a speed push from the East Twin to the South in 5 minutes, took a breather and ran back in 5:30...pretty much hit a wall on the way back ha ha. We then descended down the Northeast Ridge route down crazy steep crap to the mineral basin use road and back up to Hidden Peak before calling it a day. Good stuff.

    You walked up here?  Sucess!

    I walked up the resort to where the tram goes to at about 10,000 feet and some guy asked if I walked up there...of course I did! And then I pointed to where I was going. I loved the traverse over the knife edge ridge. Thanks Twins!

    Northeast Ridge Route  Sucess!

    Got off work early and met my friend at Snowbird where he had just finished a conference. We rode the tram to the top of Hidden Peak because it was already after 3pm. Weather was great so we went for the summits of the American Fork Twin Peaks via the Northeast ridge route. This route follows a knife edge ridge then up some steep, but easily manageable rock scrambling and finally up a scree field to the East (lower) summit. From there, it is a simple 10 minute walk across the broad ridge to the higher West summit. This is the highest point in Salt Lake County. It took us an hour and forty minutes to get up. We hung out for a bit then started back. We cut off the route just before the knife edge portion and dropped down into Gad Valley where we crossed some snow fields and descended the rest of the way down the resort. The scenery was amazing. Lots of snow (in AUGUST), very green, meadows and rivers everywhere. Saw lots of deer and three moose. Took us 2:14 to descend all the way back to the Cliff Lodge. Great trip, great weather, great scenery....

    Gad Valley to the Top  Sucess!

    Hiked up Gad Valley Route, then up grassy slope to ridge, Red Top, and north to the summit. No one else was on the route while I was there, though a few parties were walking the ski resort roads in Gad Valley. Pretty straight forward summer scramble, little exposure.
