Ascent Trip Report

We started at the bottom of Alta, and climbed up Sugarloaf. From Sugarloaf, we headed up to Mount Baldy. At the summit, there was a antenna of some sort. We then descended from Baldy to Hidden Peak (10,992), which is the top of the Snowbird Tram, and ate lunch in the warming hut. After lunch, we hiked up to American Fork Twins, and Red Top. We didn't have the time to go to Red Baldy, since the infamous blue van was back at Alta. We wanted to do the entire "Bullion Divide," but without a second car, the logistics were not as favorable.
