Camping at Red Pine Lakes  Sucess!

Nice overnighter at Red Pine Lakes so that we could see the sunrise from the upper ridge the next morning.

Via Red Pine  Sucess!

Went in Thursday afternoon and camped at the Upper Red Pine Lakes. Headlamps for an early morning start up the spur ridge and then up to the top - nice going during the week - hardly anyone there. Fall colors are starting and the area looks beautiful.

Red Pine/ East Ridge  Sucess!

This is a nice hike. The trail is steep in parts. There were mountain goats all over which made it really entertaining. I did this summit with Robert and Shawn.

6/27/14- I went to this summit again as part of the Beatout Route.

Delicious  Sucess!

Took the standard route (East ridge) to the top. Perfect weather. Enjoyed a Pfeifferhorn Lager from Epic Brewing company.

N Ridge and NW Couloir  Sucess!

June 6, 2008: Did the NW Couloir with Brian (dunsum) after bailing on a Colorado trip due to impending snow.

November 22, 2008: Did the N Ridge with marauders and pocketsofblue. This was my third attempt at this ridge--I was really getting tired of walking into Maybird Gulch. Worth the wait though--the climbing was easy enough to simulclimb the entire route, but interesting enough to get your attention.

Via red pine  Sucess!

Climbed it a number of times, but it's been way to long now. Have to do it this year.

via Red Pine  Sucess!

It was a great way to spend the Labor Day! I went with fellow SPer kteichert and his wife. We hit the TH at 7:15am, and reached the summit promptly at 10:15am. The knife-edge on the east ridge wasn't as bad as I thought, although care must be taken when crossing it. The final push to the summit looked nearly impossible when viewed from the saddle between White Baldy and Pfeifferhorn, but once again, when we got there, it wasn't bad at all! A great scramble, with fun boulder hopping, and outstanding summit views, especially of Broads Fork Twin Peaks, Sunrise Peak (O'Sullivan Peak) to the north, Lone Peak to the west, Box Elder Peak to the south, and White Baldy from the east. After about an hour on the summit, we headed down, taking us two hours to arrive back at our car. I look forward to doing this one again!

Check   Sucess!

Finally I can check Pfeifferhorn off the must-do list. I can see it from my house in Alpine and have always wanted to do it. Went up via Red Pine Lake. Despite heavy suggestions to not bring dogs, I brought my dog Ginger. She made the trip much more enjoyable. Now she has done Provo, Box Elder, Reids Peak, Cascade, Bald Mountain and Pfeifferhorn.

Can't wait to do again  Sucess!

First time up the pfeifferhorn. Took the kids with me. Hiked the Red Pine route. I was very apprehensive about the knife edge ridge crossing as I had heard it was "very scary". Either I'm dumb or the stuff I had heard was highly exaggerated, because it was a complete non-event. Fun but not nearly as heart pounding as Lone Peak :)

Pfeifferhorn  Sucess!

Forecast of mostly sunny turned into low clouds obscuring the summit. They cleared fortunately and we were able to make the summit.

Sunrise is beautiful  Sucess!

Made it to the top just before sunrise and it truly was wonderful.

Good start, keep going  Sucess!

Awesome scrambling so close to home, continued on to White and Red Baldy before I had to get home for something. Would have loved to continue on the ridge east. Full report, map and pics at
