Ascent Trip Report

We decided it would be fun to go camping at Upper Red Pine Lake over a weekend. Both the peaks we wanted to do could be done in 1 day each, or both in 1 day, but we wanted to take a trip. The plan was to hike up, and climb White Baldy (11,321), and then the next day, climb Pfeifferhorn (11,326). The hike up to Upper Red Pine Lake was easy and uneventful. After setting up camp, and lunch, we headed up to White Baldy. Corey wasn't feeling well, so Greg stayed in camp with him. The snow to the ridge was the best part of the climb, because at the ridge, there was no snow, just boulders. The only people to summit were Keith, Matt, Duane, Don S, Dan, Kevin, and me. After returning to camp, Kevin had to go home, and took Corey with him, since he was sick. Pictures
