Climbed the PIG with byates
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.
Climbed it a number of times, but it's been way to long now. Have to do it this year.
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!
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.
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 :)
Forecast of mostly sunny turned into low clouds obscuring the summit. They cleared fortunately and we were able to make the summit.
Made it to the top just before sunrise and it truly was wonderful.
My first time climbing this nice peak. Will be on my list again for sure.
Sunny and warm day. Climbed with Brian and Lubos
Would still like to climb the N ridge
Beautiful area. Amazing hike and very fun. Hiked with Greg. Saw lots of people on the trail but had the summit to our selves.
very fun winter climb. My favorite way to descend is to ski the NorthWest coulior
Climb on the average about 3-4 times a year.
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!
Climbed the N Ridge w/ Matt and Brenton. Fantastic alpine route in great conditions on a beautiful day! Doesn't get much better in the Wasatch..
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.
