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.

Route Climbed: North Ridge  Sucess!

Without question one of the classic routes in the Wasatch. Early early season conditions made for fun mixed climbing and amble opportunities for pro. Climbing with a great group in perfect weather. Hopefully, many more of these to come!

Couldn't be more perfect  Sucess!

I am so happy I finally made time to do this peak. It was such a perfect day for it as well. There was barely a breeze on the top and ridge line and the air was clear and cool. This peak looks very daunting from the ridge, however, it proved to be a much easier climb then it looked. I would really like to come back in the spring and give it another try.

Slept on Top  Sucess!

Via Red Pine. Camped on the saddle between White Baldy and Pfeiff. Great views of Box Elder and Timp. Saw over 75 people on the trail coming up but only three on the summit ridge.

finally...  Sucess!

I always seem to get diverted or distracted when I set out to go up the Pfeiff, so it was great to finally get to the top. Beautiful day, great view. I used the standard Red Pine route.

Beatout !  Sucess!

I went with my good friend, Bryan. This was the first time for both of us being on the Red Pine Trail. We made it to the top of the summit in a couple hours. On top, we decided to make it a day and do the Beatout Hike. So we continued west and went down Bells Canyon. It took ALL day. Great hike!!!!!!!!
