finally climbed it, amazing hike
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.
Fun half day hike. Minimal scrambling. Great views. Very jealous that folks in salt lake have this mountain so close
Via Red Pine
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.
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.
Took the morning off work and went up Red Pine. Made good time until I hit the snow. Made for a fun decent, though.
Beautiful views from the top, I didn't want to leave.
first time via red pine

Great views. Easy scramble. Had the summit to ourselves at 7 p.m. Love being on the Alpine Ridge.

Always a great climb!
Left early and summitted just after sunrise. Perfect weather. First time on the Pfeiff. Awesome!
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.
w/ Kiersten and boss, not sure of date
2 - 8/4/18 - via Red Pine to Beatout
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.
Took the standard route (East ridge) to the top. Perfect weather. Enjoyed a Pfeifferhorn Lager from Epic Brewing company.
My wife and I summit a different local peak for our anniversary. this was #10. we hiked up and camped above the lake on a snow field. We summited the next morning and started back down to miss the throngs of people coming up for the 24th holiday. good times with the wifey.
This was our second attempt, we made it this time! This was the 11th summit with my son (Apexrock) who is signed in below me.
