Salt Lake County High Point Trip Report

American Fork Twin Peaks (11,489 ft)

Parked at Snowbird at 4:30 AM. I ascended to the top of the ski lift in the cirque below the peak then the ridge line west of the resort. A shorter peak of reddish stone tops off that ridge, and then a short traverse to the east across a saddle puts you on top of the west and higher Twin. A cairn sits a few feet from the actual highest piece of rock. Absolutely magnificent views of Timpanogos, Little Matterhorn, Lone Peak, the other Twin, etc. Sunrise on top is always spectacular. Saw two doe and a two-point buck on the descent.

I cleaned up at home and made it to work by 8:30 AM. This is currently my home county.
