How to get there:
Drive from Salt lake City to the ski area
Snowbird. Route description:
We hiked straight up towards the right hand
ridge of the Twin peaks as seen from the lodge.
The hike to the summit traversing both summits is quite easy.
We returned after traversing the two peaks down
along the ridge to the top of the gondola lift.
a rather nice little ridge that can be easily
traversed with some light climbing/scrambling.
The end of the route climbs a small top called Hidden Peak,
serviced by the lift. This peak has no significant prominence.
I led a rather
diverse group from a scientific conference
along the described route. The hotel has a pretty
good climbing wall as part of it's outer wall.
