"Hiked Red Pine Trail trying to get to the summit of Pfeifferhorn. made it up the talus rock slope to the ridge but the trail became a scamble up some class 3 boulders. Since we are more hikers than climbers we called it good. hiked with my wife and daughter. We are a little disappointed in not making the actual summit but felt good making the uphill hike and approximate 10 mile hike out and back. Views of Red Pine Lake and surrounding area are beautiful and worth the hike alone." - RAW, Jul 6, 2018

A nice older lady on her wa" - RamboDaWulf420, Jun 22, 2015
"clear skies, climbed the snowfield for fun, training up on proper ice axe techniques. Blowy as hell on top - lost my favorite hat :( (I count this as a sacrifice to the mountain gods - guaranteeing good climbing season). /\/\/\/\/\" - DianaC, Jun 21, 2015
"Trail run. Better route finding (than previous climbs) put me on top of Pfeifferhorn from the White Pine parking lot in less than two hours. The rain must have discouraged the usual crowd of people I meet on top of the summit and along the ridgeline. " - Hardman, Jul 12, 2013
