Skiing the shoulder of Reids Peak  Sucess!

2019 was an epic winter so we were fortunate to be able to ski into June. Sean and I took our snowmobiles up Mirror Lake Highway almost to the summit and then exited towards Reids as our goal was to ski the southwest shoulder. We parked out sleds at the bottom and hiked up the steep and firm chute. It was so steep that we had to help each other get our skis on but once the skis were on- you felt self and confident. The chute as about 500 vertical of nice spring corn. For a full report check out https://www.summitingwolf.com/post/skiing-reids-peak-in-the-uintas

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Did a loop hike with Kendrick from the Bald Mountain trailhead, passing a couple yummy patches of huckleberries on the way to the saddle between Reids and Bald. We then went up the southeast ridge, which has some awesome scrambling. We stayed right on the ridge for the first half, then stayed on the slopes to the left as it got steeper near the top (going behind a couple mountain goats who must’ve thought we were following them). On the way back up to Bald Mountain we encountered some snow, but upon summiting it was an easy descent back down the trail to the bottom. Great day in the mountains. See "Huckleberries, Goats, & [Mostly] Solid Rock" trip report for details.

Reids Peak  Sucess!

Took the Notch Lake trail, then went cross-country to the saddle between Reids and Bald Mountain. Climbed the ridge to Reids, descended back to the saddle, then climbed Bald Mountain and descended the Bald Mountain trail back to the parking lot. A pretty nice little loop. I avoided some of the direct parts of the ridge to Reids, since I had my dog with me. Ended up bushwhacking off the ridge a bit.

Reids  Sucess!

Forgot to sign the log for this peak for some reason. I've been up Bald several times but enjoyed Reids much more. Fun route up the southeast ridge.

Bald and Reids  Sucess!

Hiked up Bald Mountain, then traversed over to Reids. Descended SW off the saddle to meet the trail.

Via Bald Mountain  Sucess!

With ZeeJay. Climbed Bald Mtn and Reids Peak in lieu of Kletting and A-1 because high stream flows on the Hayden Fork prevented us from our first choice. But these two were fine. The downclimb from Bald Mtn to the saddle en route to Reids Peak was tortuous because of ice and 2" or 3" of snow on most of the never-ending boulders. This activity is a character builder, right? :)

Had to do it  Sucess!

My friend and I planned to hike Bald Mountain and Murdock yesterday. We did Bald first, and surveying the easiness of Murdock, and it's inglorious mound of a summit, and seeing the stark contrast of Reids Peak, I decided Reids would be the much better hike if I were going to bag 2 peaks in one day. I left the top of Bald Mtn at 10:15, and reached the summit of Reids at 11:05 am via the northwest ridge of Bald, to the saddle and up the southeast ridge of Reids. I had my dog with me and there was only one cliff band that I had to lift her up. The rest she was able to do on her own. Fun scramble and amazing peak! Loved it!

SE Ridge from Notch Mtn Trail  Sucess!

There wasn't much snow left, but I did see a couple guys hiking up and skiing down the little bit of snow that was left. To gain the ridge was pretty steep, but once on the ridge the fun began. It's always fun in the Uintas.

Interesting peak  Sucess!

5/24/2008 Skied to about 11300' and then booted the rest of the way along the southeast ridge. MOCKBA, Rob, and I started at mile 25.5 on the Mirror Lake Highway and skied a loop encompassing East Notch Mountain and Reids Peak.

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

A very fun scramble along the ridge with some spectacular views and exposure. I dropped to the side in a few spots that were out of my comfort level, but followed the ridge for most of the way. Overall this is a great peak to climb.

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge Direct  Sucess!

Fantastic climb. One of my favorites so far in the Wasatch/Uinta Ranges. Rather than skirting around the ridge proper, stay right on the ridge for a phenomenal 5.4 climb. Great atmostphere, views, solitude and fun exposure. This is a must do. Only a half day route, if that.

Route Climbed: SE Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed Bald, descended to the saddle between the two mountains, ascended SE ridge. An easy climb with just a few optional cliff bands to negotiate. Easy access, great views, and nobody else around!

Route Climbed: Pass Lake - Descended SW face Date Climbed: August 28, 2004  Sucess!

Fun peak for scrambling, and an excellent peak to do after climbing Bald Mountain. I then continued on to Notch Mountain, and Mount Watson via easy cross country and class 2 scrambling.

Reids Peak  Sucess!

One of my favorite peaks. Climbed via both Notch Mountain Trail and Pass Lakes routes, the first on August 10 1991 via Notch Lake with friends Josh and Mike while working at the East Fork Bear River Scout Camp. Josh drove to the trailhead since he was the only one who had a drivers license.
