Great Rock.

seabadgeClimbed west ridge, descended north ridge.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2013


With Gimpilator. Fractured my left index finger 200 feet below summit when a rock was dislodged by my partner and landed just-so on my hand. Completed climb and down-climbed north ridge/face snow. Despite the injury, a very memorable climb with fantastic rock.

I had my eye on the Twins for several years and finally got the chance to tick one off the list! I must say I was certainly not disappointed! Pushing the bike up the logging roads was a major drag but 3+ hours later the real fun began! The rock quality was superb as expected, and there were myriad route options to choose from. My group reached the summit in just under 6 hours. The downclimb was one of the best I have ever done. A nice glissade down the north face, short walk back to the bikes, and a swift ride down the logging roads. Having the bike for the descent made it more than worth it pushing the dang thing up hill for all those miles! I climbed this one with Brett and his friend Sean. Car to car in a little under 9 hours.

A wild guess on the date. As described, the rock here is amazing, so gritty that even tiny holds feel very secure. So much so, that I remember my friend and I intentionally going off-route so we'd have an excuse to use the tech gear we carried up. The loggers/mining company people can be very unpleasant on the drive in, don't know what their problem is.

Best and scariest scrambling I have ever done. Also, the absolute WORST approach EVER. We didn't have bikes so the road ate our feet. Its going to be a while before I ever do this one again. Super fun tho.

Ran up Pugh the day before. Arrived at the gate to see maybe 10 cars, all just starting out as well. Even on an exposed rock nose with deadly exposure can you still feel great unroped, everytime you need a hold-it's right there. Descended the North Face with very little snow to meet up with the ridge at about 4,500' & with a bike ride like the one you get on the way back, this may be annual ordeal.

Did the west ridge as my first solo climb. Descended the North Face. Did the west ridge in winter, a fun, easy 'mixed' climb.

Excellent climb. It was my first mountain in the Northwest. Couldn't have asked for a better day. Sunny all day and relatively cloudless.

The snow level was very low. Almost all of the snow in the saddle between the summits was gone. Also the snow field on the north face was small. Glissading wasn't possible.

my only regret is that i lost my camera on the trip. i accidently dropped it and it rolled off a ledge

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2013


Natasha and I climbed the west ridge and descended the north ridge. Just below the summit I dislodged a small rock and it fell four feet onto her hand. Her left index finger was fractured and she completed the climb with difficulty. See the trip report.

First attempt: May 15, 2007

Didn't make it to the summit, only had one day due to work and ran out of daylight. Can't wait to get back up here to try it again, very awesome route!

Park at gate and rode/pushed bikes to mountain with Norman and our boys, Andrew and Nate. Scamper up good rock and back down the very steep snow field on north side. Lot's of blueberries.

We had a crazy climb of both the North and South Twin Sisters in a day, it went great until the descent of the South Twin. We got off route and had a terrible time of bushwhacking.

Here is the Trip Report

Climbed North & South peaks in same day. Went up West Ridge, descended SE ridge. This was difficult downclimbing with no rope; very steep & lots of loose rock. I did not see an easier alternative, but I wouldn't recommend the way I went without a rope. Beautiful clear day, mid-80's. Awesome views of Baker!

This is a great route; probably my favorite scramble to date. Some people do rope up for the rock portion. The Descent route off the north face does require some face in downclimbing and scrambling over loose rock before you get to the glissadable part. Saw a few folks in over their heads learning how to use the ice axe.

I was imagining the rock to much more abrasive than it was; they do make sandpaper out if it, but it's not as sharp as J tree rock.

rockrat2Very fun


Very fun, had only one day to summit (in winter) and got a late start so ran out of daylight just below summit. Will definitley make another attempt next time I'm in the area.

Excellent rock even following a full day of rain. Minimal visibility/no view, but fun nontheless.
