Incredible!  Sucess!

This was the most technical/intense hike I had been on to date. Super awesome and a huge achievement (for me). The scrambling section was a little intense, but it was my first time on something like that. I don't want to discourage anyone, it was awesome. I'm excited for the next time we do it. Thanks to my hubs for verbally/emotionally helping me across the knife edge ridge. :)

One of my favorites!   Sucess!

Did this about 12 years ago with a buddy. Been aching to do it again for years now. Had a great time sharing this experience with my wife and son this go around!

Pfeiff  Sucess!

9/27/09 - Hiked with some classmates to this amazing peak thru Maybird Gulch. The summit climb was cake, and the views were pure eye candy. We decided to take the standard Red Pine trail on the way back, except we lost it and ended up in another boulder field about a mile from the actual trail.

9/26/10 - via Maybird Gulch with Zack. Didn't get lost on the way down this time. One of my favorite hikes in the Wasatch.

9/25/11 - via Red Pine with Andy, as part of an autumn Beatout.

8/13/12 - morning scramble via Red Pine

Pfeifferhorn  Sucess!

The hike up to red pine lake was fun until we hit snow. I really dislike hiking in snow. The rock climbing was quite fun at the top and the view was amazing. We sat at the top for 30 minutes just looking around and taking pictures.

Pfeifferhorn  Sucess!

5/10/2015 Via North Ridge with Lubos Pavel and Donovan Lynch. Significant amounts of new snow from the previous couple days. Very challenging route made much tougher with all the new snow. Far more of a winter ascent than some of actual winter ascents I've done this year. Descended the East Ridge and glissaded back down into Maybird.
10/9/2013 Via Red Pine.
8/4/2013 With the WMC as part of the Beatout hike. The Beatout is quite a different experience without snow. Very awesome. 10th time up the Pfeifferhorn.
6/2/2013 From Red Pine with the Wasatch Mountain Club. From the Pfeifferhorn we traversed the ridge to White Baldy. Great glissade off of the top of White Baldy. We glissaded down about 1300 feet of vert, to upper Red Pine Lake, in two shots. Blue bird day.
5/26/2013 Via Red Pine.
5/11/2013 From Red Pine as part of the Beatout.
4/30/2013 From Red Pine. Really nice spring climb.
10/30/2012 via Maybird Gulch. Climbed the Pfeifferhorn from Maybird with a side trip along the Hogum Divide to the Obelisk. Traversed along the Hogum Divide as far as I could before dropping back down into Maybird. Gained the ridge leading to the summit of the Pfeifferhorn, at the summit cone. After summitting the Pfeifferhorn I descended by way of Red Pine Lake with a very slight detour to Little Pfeifferhorn.
9/23/2012 via Red Pine. From the Pfeifferhorn I traversed over to White Baldy. Really windy day on the ridge. Good times.
7/22/2012 via Red Pine with the WMC.
6/3/2012 via Red Pine as part of the Beatout.
7/31/2011 via Red Pine.

Winter Success  Sucess!

Great snow climb with my friend Matt Davidson. Ski descent into eastern chutes of Maybird. Fantastic winter mountaineering route.

Fall Trip Nice View  Sucess!

Overnight trip on east route. Fun climb, great views. It was after an early year storm that left a few inches on the top half of the mountain.

Fun, quick jaunt. To top in a couple of hours. Good views. Nice summit pyramid. Climbed the same day I flew into Salt Lake City from the east US.

Awesome Climb  Sucess!

Some of the best views in the wasatch! If you've been up to Red Pine Lake, make the extra push up to the Pheiff - it's totally worth it.

Red pine   Sucess!

Fun half day hike. Minimal scrambling. Great views. Very jealous that folks in salt lake have this mountain so close

second time  Sucess!

Second time to the top, the first when i was younger than 10 (so my memories were mainly faded). Very nice hike, took about an hour and a half to get to the lakes. From then on our pace slowed, but it wasn't too hard of hiking. Easy routefinding, and beautiful view from the top. Saw some hikers doing a loop up Maybird. They said it was a scarier scramble (and I believe them) getting to the alpine ridge, but seemed well worth it. May check out that or the beatout next time i'm considering the Pfeiff.

Cool Peak!  Sucess!

My first peak in Utah over 10k. Also my first since moving to SLC. What a beautiful area. Quite crowded though. I think it was the second most crowded mountain I've ever been on.
