seanpeckhamClimbed four times, different routes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 2008

seanpeckham

One of my favorites, I've attempted it five times:
1: July or August 1996 - camped at bottom of Broads Fork basin, ascended via Robinson Variation, descended standard route including a fun glissade.
2: September 1997 - camped again, rained out, didn't attempt summit
3: October 9, 2002 (solo) - a bit more than a foot of recent snow, bivied at the spring, began ascent of standard route, and ended up traversing across the slabs to the top of Bonkers. Ascended the north ridge and came down the east ridge. Got off-route to the south and dangled from limber pines back to the saddle.
4: May 4, 2008 as part the WMC Triple Traverse. This was the first time I continued to the west peak.
5: June 24, 2012 with my wife and friends via Robinson variation, including west peak.

Oh so close on this one. After a dusting of snow fell a few days before, I decided conditions might still be ample to bag this one from BCC via the standard route. It was another beautiful fall afternoon, I made good time up to the alpine cirque and started directly up the east slopes to the summit ridge. At around 400 feet below the ridge it started to get REAL sketchy with 3 inches of powder covering slick rocks. I had neither my axe nor crampons so I elected to ditch the effort about 100 feet below the ridgeline. Still an awesome time: http://photos.aleclalonde.com/main.php?g2_itemId=4584

Between following a dead-end trail and being stalked by a mountain lion, we ran out of time upon reaching the saddle. Unfortunately we turned around within view of the summit.

First attempt: Nov. 3, 2007
Snow shooed up the snowfield to the saddle. Snow was perfect for shoes. However, it was too thin at the saddle to offer good footing through the cliffband, so we didn't get onto the ridge. Next time:(

Success! Sep. 6, 2008
Beautiful day. Ascended from the east, via the saddle between the Twins and Sunrise. We descended down the north ridge, from the east twin.

This was a great trip, my Dad (65) grew up in the shaddow of these peaks, he had only climbed the twins from Def Smith canyon, when he was a boy. He recently (18 months) had his left knee replaced with a prosthetic knee, and he wanted to make the summit again. We had decided that we would make it a two day trip, starting Sunday morning, we would try to make the upper circ, camp overnight and try for the summit the next day. As it all turned out our plan worked. We made it to our base camp in 7 hours, from the trail head. The next morning, after 3 1/2 hours, my Dad stood on the East summit once again. Seven hours later we were back at the trail head. One of my best days in the mountains.

Another of the SP group that summited on Sept. 1 of 2007. We had good weather (a bit hot), the route was lots of fun, and it was a great group to be out with. I had big ideas of doing the Triple Traverse, but was moving slow, so I ditched out after tagging the Twins.

Climbed to both East and West Broads Fork Twin Peaks via the Robinson Variation with a group from SP. We attempted to make it to the unnamed peak between the Twins and Sunrise, but a falling rock accident (I was hit in the shoulder and ankle) caused us to turn around early just below the unnamed peak.

Very fun climb with a great group from SP. We ascended the Robinson Variation and the scrambling was excellent. We had plans to do the triple traverse while we were up there, but I didn't have the legs to do anything more than Broads. Some of the others in the group did keep going after the rest of us went down.

9-1-07 Climbed via Robinson variation and descended standard broads fork route. Took the side trip to the lower West summit. Well worth the views of the valley. Lots of scrambling and talus.

5-16-09 Climbed the east summit as part of the Tanners Gulch Triple Traverse. Descended north ridge to Robinson Couloir.

Went up through Broads Fork in 100+ degree heat. Climbing in uncomfortable boots during such hot, dry conditions made it one of the most difficult hikes I've undertaken, but overall it was very rewarding. The views from the lower meadow, the saddle below East Twin Peak, and the summit itself were first class. The most tiring part of the climb was the seemingly never-ending talus field leading up to the Cottonwood Ridge. The steep scrambling above the saddle was quite exhilarating. Because of the blistering heat, we wisely decided to forego the traverse to West Twin Peak and turned around after obtaining the higher East Twin Peak. See "Beating the Heat" trip report for details.

5-29-07 3rd time on summit, via Ferguson Canyon. On May 12th this year we touched both East and West summits as a part of the Triple Traverse, and my 1st time up was via the Broads Fork trail several years ago. If you like scrambling and sweeping views mixed in with sloughing quartzite along steep ridges, you'll love this climb along the ridge above and east of Ferguson Canyon. Plan for all day. Still enough snow to allow us to glissade down Broads Fork for at least 1,300'. Fun, fun, fun. #4 was 9/18/07 as the first peak of the entire Cottonwood Ridge run. Nice but windy. #5 (both east and west) as part of my 2nd Triple Traverse on 5-6-08. Much snow this year! 6th time 7-15-08 (both peaks) from Ferguson Canyon via Ferguson and Stairs Peaks and then the latter part of the so-called Robinson Variation. Still glissading opportunities in upper Broads Fork basin. #7 7-19-08 As part of 2nd Cottonwood Ridge run. #8 4-30-09 All snow above the bridge. Tough, tough going over and through the avalanche debris; 5" of new snow had not quite bonded with the older stuff. Took new route - very steep and NOT recommended to anyone! 5+00 up 2+42 down #9 on 5-16-09 (both summits) w/ Dave & Christine as part of Triple Traverse. #10 5-7-10 W/ Joe Bullough-part of TT; both peaks; mucho trailbreaking on cornice-packed dicey ridges. Therefore, much fun! :) #11 7-3-10 As part of Cottonwood Ridge run. #12 7-13-10 W/ Dave & Anne - Ferguson Canyon route over Ferguson & Stairs Peaks. #13. 7-3-12 w/ Brent. Some snow fields in the upper basin below the saddle. Turtle pace up in 4+35 & okay down in 3+14. I bagged the west peak, and why not? #14 8-11-12 As part of the ridge traverse. 1st peak in a long string of 'em. #15 6-29-13 Snow in upper basin on approach but warm, warm weather. Mit einer unbeschreiblichen Wanderungspartnerin. #16 7-1-14 Solo. Snow in upper basin. 3+42 up. IVD

One of my first hikes was up the beautiful and long Deaf Smith south drainage back in 2000. Recently went up via Broads Fork Robinson Variation Sept 1 2007. Very fun and definitely preferred to the talus slog of the standard route.

Hands down my favorite climb, maybe ever. Got both in. I've done it in the summer, but the traverse is so much cooler.

I climbed the Peaks via Stairs Gulch and made the mistake of climbing Stairs Gulch on the right side rather than sticking to the left side as recommended on this site. Lotsa fun and not too difficult over there......maybe a little scary. The peak was not near as tough as expected.

A very rewarding hike/scramble. It was very busy, considering it was Labor Day. I saw some bypassing difficult sections on the ridge by dropping a hundred feet or so into the Big Cottonwood side, and others taking the main ridge itself. I saw a fire flare up down Deaf Smith canyon while sitting on the West summit.
