Good view  Sucess!

Came up via Snowbird roads in Gad Valley. Avalanche control explosive debris can be found all over the boulders heading up to the WhitePine/GadValley ridge. I saw a helicopter ferry a stricken climber down from below Pfeifferhorn...I later heard a couple of boulders rolled on top of her on a hillside.

Route Climbed: Northeast ridge Date Climbed: Oct, 2005  Sucess!

Summited along with madsjim. The ridge is fun, and in my opinion much more "knife-edge" than the Pfeifferhorn, though with less exposure. I doubt anybody else summitted that day.

Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: Oct 2005  Sucess!

I kind of cheated by taking the tram to Hidden Peak, but I just wanted a nice little hike and the ridge was great fun. I don't think the knife edge is as bad as some may say, at no point is there any real exposure to danger.

Route Climbed: East Ridge via Snowbird Date Climbed: July 31, 2004  Sucess!

Biked to the top of the tram and ditched our bikes. Then took the ridgeline to the West. A bit gnarly in places. Descended via the shale slope then picked up the Road to Provo back to our bikes.

Hiked as part of the Bullion after hiking sugarloaf, baldy, and hidden. The ridge wore right through myself and my partner, as neither of us got a good nights sleep the night before.

Route Climbed: Pipeline Couloir Date Climbed: July 25th, 2005  Sucess!

Really fun snow climb - steeper and scarier than expected, but that's probably in part due to the fact that I was soloing. There were a few scary instances where I had to dodge rocks flying down the couloir as a &*#^ mountain goat was walking along the top! Descended via the Northeast Ridge and pondered trying out a smaller north ridge spur.

It was a great climb, and I was back down in time for lunch!

Route Climbed: From Silver Lake American Fork Canyon Date Climbed: July-06-2005  Sucess!

We peaked the American Fork twins (the West Twin, we ran out of day light and energy to do the other two peaks) at the end of our three-peak trip. We started from Silver Lake Flat in American Fork Canyon and hiked the trail to Silver Lake, then went up the west ridge of White Baldy, opposite Silver Glance route. We then followed the ridge from White Baldy to Red baldy and then peaked Red Stack and the West Twin. It was a long hike but worth the view and the effort.

Route Climbed: Ridge from Hidden Peak Date Climbed: October 6 2001

Summited both peaks from the knife edge ridge west of Hidden Peak. We started at the campground in Albion Basin. A beautiful fall day hike! Did these 2 peaks again on June 25 '07 from the Snowbird parking lot thru Gad Valley and from the west ridge via Red Stack and down the knife edged ridge to the east. Always a great hike.

Kinda fun. Good views.

Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge, Bullion Divide Date Climbed: July 20, 2003, many other times  Sucess!

I usually climb AF Twin Peaks when I'm hiking the Bullion Divide along with several other peaks. I think the knife-edge ridge is fun. The approach from Albion Basin is scenic and usually where I start from.

Date Climbed: July 04

Did this peak with Craig Lloyd. We started at Snowbird and went over Red Stack. The views were great, but the wind was cold.

6/28/12- Sugarloag, Baldy, Hiddeen, AF Twins and Red Stack.

Route Climbed: Northeast RIdge, AF side Date Climbed: 1985, 87  Sucess!

Did first from Alta, Cecret Lake, Baldy, etc. Second time was a simple walk up from the AF side. Drove up a 2WD dirt road to roughly 10,000 ft, and walked up the easy backside (over third summit), joking all the way about how "hardcore" we were.

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: July 2000  Sucess!

Actually we summited Red Stack, the peak just to the east of AF Twin Peaks, but no one has submitted that mountain yet. I'll get to work on it.

Route Climbed: Tram via Bullion Divide 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! The NE face looks like it could have some pretty sweet spring snow climbs - I gotta check these chutes out later!

Route Climbed: Bullion Divide Date Climbed: June, 2002  Sucess!

Nice scramble. I'd been wanting to do this peak for a while.

An interesting note - along the lower part of the ridgeline between the tram and American Fork Twin Peaks, on the rocks, there were bolts. I wonder what they'er used for, since exposure certainly didn't require placing protection. Maybe something to do with avalanche control?

Route Climbed: Snowbird/Gad Valley Date Climbed: August 13, 1996  Sucess!

Did solo climb of A.F. Twins via Snowbird/Gad Valley, and the Gad Valley/White Pine ridge. Some bushwhacking on the ridge, but once at about 10,000 feet, clear sailing up open, tundra and rock ridge right to summit of "Red Stack" (also called Red Top), then across ridge to true summit of A.F. Twin. Made short, easy trip to slightly lower east summit. Hope to go back soon and do this peak from the knife-edge ridge connecting it to Hidden Peak.

Route Climbed: White Pine Date Climbed: August-09-2003  Sucess!

Left White Pine trailhead at 7:00 am, had lunch at the top by myself and decided to take the ridge down from East Twin to the ski runs. Made it back to the car while walking down the canyon road around 12:00.
