HardmanVia Broad's Fork Direct  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2013

Hardman

Standard Broad's Fork route. Up and down in under 5 hours. "Baptized" myself in the creek beside the Lake Blanche/Broad's Fork parking lot afterwards.

From what I gather, the Broad's Fork route is likely the "least interesting" approach to the Twins. I'm planning on making an attempt via Stairs Gulch in the next few weeks to see if that holds up.

8/21/2010 - Finally got up here with some friends after living in Salt Lake for nearly a year. Slid down a scree field back to the main trail, scared a few mountain goats, but mostly got a lot of rocks in my shoes.

8/14/2011 - East Twin only. Hiked up along the ridge from Ferguson Canyon with Stephen. Some nice crazy exposure and scrambling opportunities. Glissaded/ descended via Broads Fork where we caught a hitch to the mouth of the canyon and walked the remaining half mile back to the car.

9/10/2011 - Hiked up via the Robinson couloir with Stephen, then continued over to Sunrise Peak.

7/30/2012 - First part of triple traverse via Robinson couloir with Sage.

7/13/2013 - via Robinson Ridge with Andy. Continued on to Sunrise.

Up the Robinson variation, admiring a huge old slide that pretty much cleaned it out. Then endless crust-punching, post-holing hell along the ridge. I was going to tag some neighbors, but the unexpectedly soft snow on the ridge was a bit much. Down something like the standard route, with some sketchy, loose 4th class downclimbing to avoid more time spent on the ridge.

What I wouldn't give for consolidated snow... Trip report.

One of the finest days possible in Utah. Took me a couple attempts to reach it and the scree field late summer is tedious and miserable. I'd go before the snow melts and do as much as you can in crampons. The route was hard to stick past the Beaver Pond, but just walk as far as you can towards Sunrise Peak and then head to your right. You get around the nasty face of the peaks that way. A good scramble or light climb from there. You might have to go up a crack or two depending on your exact route. Then to the East is wilderness and to the West is a mess of city lights.

There were a couple spots that made me a little nervous on the way up and I was glad to finally make it to the top! We went up the Robinson route and back down the standard route which didn't seem bad to me. There was some pretty amazing views and it was a beautiful day.

Perfect Fall weather! Went up the Robinson's Variation and down the never-ending Talus slopes leading into Lake Blanche Basin from the summit of Dromedary. Long day, but worth it!

We went up the Robinson route---FAR better views but much more difficult IMO. I didn't think the scrambling down the standard route was any worse than what was on the Robinson variation. The summit is AWESOME and it was a beautiful day!

    6/30/2013 Climbed with the WMC via Ferguson Canyon and traverse from Storm Mountain. We had planned to do the Triple Traverse upon reaching Twins but we were not moving to quick this day. Temps in the valley reached 103 degrees today. Awesome route, one of my favorites. Third time on top of Twins this month.
    6/25/2013 Climbed via Ferguson Canyon, traverse from Storm Mountain. Great route, loved the ridge between Storm and Twin. Both East and West Twin.
    6/5/2013 Last Peak in the Triple Traverse. On a solo mission I gained the saddle between Sunrise and Dromedary via Broads Fork. From Dromedary I traversed over Sunrise to Twin Peaks. Descended back down Broads Fork. Fun day.
    8/11/2012 Both East and West Twin via Broads Fork. Cottonwood Ridge Traverse with WMC.
    6/16/2012 Both East and West Twin via Broads Fork.
    9/26/2011 Both East and West Twin via Broads Fork.
    8/26/1999 Via Broads Fork. Climbed Twin Peaks with my mom on her 50th birthday and the day after my 21st.

    Finished the Triple Traverse w/ the Twin's. The conditions made for some great mixed climbing and exposure. We finally got some sunshine after coming off of Sunrise. Outstanding day with the WMC.

    Very beautiful area. You get to see alpine ridge and timp! It was a fairly strenuous hike, and I decided to bust out some 5th class moves near the summit. Wow, what great exposure!

    I absolutely loved it.

    I had tried to hike this three weeks earlier but had to turn around due to scheduling issues. Well worth the return trip. Took the standard route up. Perfect weather.

    Man, I hate this peak! It never ended. I quickly lost the trail after the lake and had to hunt for a good route up to a ridge and then saw my destination. I almost gave up. I headed up to the East peak and met some nice folks sharing some whiskey and hiked over to the West peak with them. No Triple Traverse today. Just too tired and out of time.
