The Pfeifferhorn is an appropriately named peak; glaciers in Maybird Gulch (location of photo) and Hogum Fork to the west (photo right) carved the peak into a horn. The cirque at the head of Maybird Gulch is backed by a steep curved wall. The arête separating the tributary glaciers displays the characteristic narrow, jagged, and sharp ridge features often described as resembling the blade of a serrated knife. The glacial tributaries feed northward into Little Cottonwood Canyon.
