Glad I did some other higher summits this day. Red needed to be done but others on the ridge are higher/better. Report at http://www.willhiteweb.com/wasatch/pfeifferhorn/little_matterhorn_196.htm
June 6, 2009 summited Red Baldy again, but this time it was part of the Red/White/Red/White.
November 29, 2008 I got within 300 vertical feet of the summit, but high winds, grauple, and time constraints caused us to turn around.
So the next Saturday, December 6, 2008 I went back with a group from Utah Outsiders, and summited on a gorgeous clear day!
Skied, Bullioned, North, East, South, and West approaches, but I still love to climb it!
Postholed my way to the top in ankle to knee deep snow on an otherwise perfect day. It looks like one other lonely soul had summited since the snow began to accumulate this fall.
5/30/09 - Climbed as part of the Red/White/Red/White. The ridge between Red & White Baldy is incredible!
12/6/08 - Beautiful Day and warm for December. Went up the west ridge and down the other side. Climbed with my friend Brian who summited his first mountain...ever. Nice work.
8/16/2008 - Climbed as part of Bullion Divide with Jareds and friends.
Climbed as part of the Bullion Traverse. Started at White Pine TH. Up white pine to White Baldy, Red Baldy, Red Top Mtn, American Fork East, West, and South Peak, Hidden Peak, Mt. Baldy, Sugarloaf, then down to Alta.
Best scrambling of the Bullion Divide route (going from east to west, at least), in my opinion, and a good climax to the route.
Day of extremes. From trail to bushwacking to boulder hopping to scrambling, then back to bushwacking and trail. Came northwest down ridge from summit directly to trail about 1/4th mile from where we left the trail earlier (1 1/2 mile from lake). Did only the east summit. Great hike, really great views. Hiked with "bignick".
4th summit on bullion divide, fun scrambling and interesting rock.
4th time on the summit(s) of Red Baldy. Once solo, once with Brent & Lana on the Red/White/Red/White hike, on 5-14-08 with L & A, and today (June '08). Snow conditions, considering the mid-June date, were excellent; we had to don crampons from abeam lower Red Pine lake until the White Baldy summit. From there to Red Baldy we got away with mountaineering boots and careful scrambling. Great glissade off of Red Baldy. Entire route took 8+25 from White Pine TH. #5 8-5-08 with Dave, Lana & Brent. First peak of ridge run including Haystack, American Fork Twin Peaks (and the A.F. South), and the spine to Hidden Peak. Then relaxed and let the Tram take us down. #6 7-30-09 From White Pine TH & up the slope from 10,000' point on the road. 2+40 up W/ Brent. #7 W/ Dave as part of reverse Bullion Divide from White Pine TH to Snowbird Tram. 9+ hrs total. Scrambling and snow. #8 6-11-11 W/ WMC team after White Baldy. Dicey snow conditions on ridge bewteen White Baldy and this summit. Record snow pack very much in evidence. Glassades down west side wet, sloppy and oodles of fun. But IVD conditions... #9 5-29-12 W/ Dave. Part of RWRW prep climb for pending WMC hike. Bluebird day. Dicey sectons of ridge with scary snow between White Baldy and the summit of Red. #10 W/ Brent. Part of Buillion Divide to Hidden Peak. 2+50 to Red Baldy from White Pine TH. #11 6-8-13 With WMC on RWRW. Great glissades on the lower 2/3 of the west face. #12 6-7-14 Annual WMC RWRW; tricky ridge work between WB & RB. Jemand war abwesend, leider... #13 7-21-17 W/ Dave, Brent & Lana. From WP TH, then to Haystack, AF Twins and Hidden Pk.
The scrambling up to the peak on this one is great. This was one of my favorite summits on the Bullion Divide.
Date climbed: July 2005. Hurried off due to t-storms approaching.
Started at Silver Lake in AF hiked up to the saddle between red baldy and white baldy. Went up and over red baldy, up red top and then onto twin peaks.
Great climb. Lots of fun. The south face was majority 35 degrees, with the upper section at 40 degrees. The glissade down was top notch!
We peaked Red Baldy coming from White Baldy on our way to The American Fork Twins.
We saw a goat and an angler!
I usually climb Red Baldy while hiking the Bullion Divide. I had to climb up two talus chutes along the ridge but it wasn't as bad as it looked. Hiked with my friend Chris who was tired of boulder hopping all day but he tried his best to have fun. The summit view of White Baldy and the rest of ridge is great.
Did this peak as part of the Bullion Divide Route. I started out at Sugarload, then did Mt Baldy, Hidden Pk, all 3 summits of the American Fork Twin Pks, Red Top, Red Baldy, and White Baldy. What a day! The NE face of this peak looks like it could contain some nice spring snowclimbs - I gotta come back up here!
Many times in summer. Never actually tried it in the winter though.
