Northeast Ridge from Twin Lakes Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2014
Climbed Northeast Ridge System from Twin Lakes. Started West of Tamarack Creek from South Twin Road. Class 2. Be prepared to do a lot of bushwhacking in thick shrub via this route.
Summit is part of ridge system/peaklets that run south toward Monument Ridge. Can be hard to tell where summit is. 1990 USGS topo lists high point at 11318. Found two places where someone had placed white PVC pipe for summit marker.
Possible to get onto class-3ish boulder field toward top of North East route.
Descended via gully directly above dam between Upper and Lower Twin Lakes. Class 2/3. Stay in easternmost gullies when descending this way or you could easily find yourself on loose/chossy class 4/5 terrain on North Face. Ascent could probably be made this way if you're up for a challenge.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
