Hazy day; there must have been a fire somewhere. Also, April 12, 2008, I summitted twice (thanks to the Collins and Sugarloaf lifts) to ski Little Chute and Main Chute. I had a maladjusted binding and first turn into Main Chute, my ski popped off, and, with no leash or brakes, luckily didn't go down too far without me.
A quick hike from Albion Basin. Took a nap on the summit and got a nice sunburn on my legs. Great views of the AF Twins and Pfiefferhorn.
First and mellowest of summits that day on the Bullion Divide
Easy hike with spectacular views. A good hike to take people on if they're not quite ready to do the harder peaks.
Pleasant evening hike with friend Patti. Nice views of the Snowbird Ski area.
Multiple ascents: snow climb 5-1-07 (second time on summit), 7-14-07 (including Sugarloaf), 7-21-07 (same), 8-7-07 part of Alta ridge run from Superior south ridge around the horn to the tram, 6th time today 5-2-08 in snowshoes, Baldy & then Hidden Peak and ride down in comfort! :) #7 7-20-10 W/ ZeeJay (bagged Sugarloaf en route). From Albion Basin. Gorgeous wildflowers blooming right now. #8 5-17-11 W/ Dave from lower Alta parking lot. Just like winter: snow, ice, snowing, wind howling, visibility down to the nubs. Baldy chutes nearing the treacherous category with hard ice covered by 5"-6" new powder. This all makes the experience fun but challenging. #9 6-18-11 Solo. Again via a Baldy chute, one west of the last one. Surprisingly good snow for this date! Tons of skiers, too. Found a Lumix digital camera - anyone know whose it is? #10 2-25-12 From Snowbird; horrendous winds so forget the tram ride down. :( #11 3-13-12 Solo. Once again unforgettable winds, gusting as high as 65 mph. So strong I could not descend to Germania Pass at Alta - had to return to Snowbird over Baldy. Had used the Bird as a lauch point anyway. #12 5-22-12 Solo, from the Bird. Then over to Hidden Peak. At the saddle between the two marched along a thin ribbon of leftover snow most of the way between peaks. Nary a soul in the entire resort. # 13 7-4-13 To celebrate Independence Day - got Sugarloaf, too. #14 & #15 on 7-9-13 & 7-11-13 after Red Top, AF Twins and Hidden Peak. Back to tram for "scenic ride" down! :) #16 & #17 8-27-13 W/ Brent from the Bird to Hidden Pk, Baldy, to Sugarloaf and back to take tram down. #18 & #19 9-17-13 W/ Brent. Same as 8-27 but faster today!. #20 6-30-15 W/Brent after Haystack, AF Twin Peaks & Hidden Peak (via White Pine TH). #21, 22 7-11-15. 1st Hidden, then here and to Sugarloaf and back here. Wild flowers galore. Tolle Gesellschaft muss ich sagen. #23 9-8-15 After hiking to Hidden Peak. Big smoke from Deer Creek area. #24 9-19-15 W/Yz. Rehab hike #2. From tram & back to. #25 5-3-16 Solo after bagging Sugarloaf w/ Brent. 0+36 from Sugarloaf lift to summit, 0+18 back to Sugarloaf lift. Great snow. #26 & #27 8-12-16 w/ Brent & Lana. From Snowbird and with Sugarloaf sandwiched between. #28 8-27-16 W/ Yz. From Hidden Pk and back to Hidden Pk. Tram down. #29 9-23-17 W/ Lana from tram and back to tram. 5" snow, 27 degrees. About 30 minutes each way. #30 5-28-18 W/ Lana from Hidden Peak. Neat snow ridges along the way. # 31 & #32 7-20-18 W/ Brent & Lana. From Hidden en route to Sugarloaf and then return. Terrific wild flowers.
A quick hike from the top of Hidden Peak
A month ago I hiked up Sugarloaf thinking it was Baldy. What do you expect? I'm from Georgia. Nice hike. I had lunch on top for 1 1/2 hours chilling out sitting on the rock cairn then back to the Catherine Pass TH to change clothes and off to the airport for home.
8/16/2008 - Climbed as part of Bullion Divide with Jareds and friends.
8/26/2006 - Nice and easy Saturday morning hike.
just a fun little peak to hit on my way to american fork twin. It's nice to get in a few peaks in one day! haha
I was just getting warmed up by this point of the Bullion Divide. I had to jog in spots in order to keep up with Joe and Asher.
Early morning hike with Dan, Matt, and Brent on the way over to the ridge of AFTP.
I travesed over after summiting Sugarloaf from Cecret lake and made the top fairly quickly , I liked the climb and it is great to do with others that may not share as much tolerance for longer harder climbs.
Probably the only peak that my wife has ever been on, due to it's easy acces via Hidden Peak. Most recently summited following a traverse from Sugarloaf.
camped at Pittsburgh lake, hiked over to Sugarloaf, over baldy, over to Hidden Peak, and rode the tram down and hitch-hiked home. fun hike.
Did this as part of the bullion divide.
Jon Tanner and I climbed this with our alpine ski gear and then skied down to the bottom of the northwest shoulder of Mount Baldy where we got escorted the rest of the way down the mountain to the ski patrol office. Lotta hassle, but it was worth it! We were let go with a warning - it was just never made real clear what rule we might have broken.
The aim was to summit American Fork Twin Peaks from Gad Valley, but I got mixed up on the Gad Valley roads, and ended up on Hidden. Turned out to be a good thing, cuz just as we reached Hidden, the rain came down. So, decided to go up the west ridge of Baldy, then down to Alta. Great day! First time in the area.
Did this summit and SugarLoaf from Albion Basin. A nice half day hike, beautiful in wildflower season.
Climbed & skiied Baldy Chute preseason, October methinks.
