Climbed the west ridge of the North Twin. Rapped SE from the notch below the summit to the glacier. Climbed NE ridge of South Twin and descended the west ridge. Great day with lots of fun challenges. (second successful traverse)

Made it to the basin relatively quickly. Started fairly low on the ridge, since the steeper snow was in the shade and was still very firm. No troubles scrambling the ridge until 6600'. We just could not find a reasonable route to the summit on the final part of the ridge that was class 4 or less. We were able to finish the ridge, but only after doing a few feet of very exposed, low 5th class climbing. It would have been much more prudent to traverse right from 6600' and finish via one of the south gullies, although they all had varying amounts of steep snow slopes. (Unlike many Pacific NW mountains, I think this mountain is actually best to do late season, after most of the snow has melted.) We started our descent via one of the south gullies, as the snow had softened up enough to make this option reasonably safe, then rejoined the ridge at 6600' for the rest of the descent.

I'd love to go back but you can't get through the gates.

This was a lengthy but enjoyable scramble route with lots of route-finding.

This was a great scramble, albeit much longer than we anticipated despite two of us (Edward, myself) previously having a failed attempt. Great bivy site in the upper basin below the west ridge slopes.

Excellent climb with Adam and Jacob. Definitely on of the most rewarding hikes I've been on. I look forward to going back and climbing the North Twin.

Scrambled up the west ridge with Adam (gimpilator of Summitpost) and Greg; some fog around 4000 feet but high clouds and party sunny above. An all-around excellent route, fun scrambling after an approach by bike and a short, brushy trail. Final approach to the summit along the crest looked intimidating, so we traversed a short ways, crossing a small snow field and ascending via a class three gully w/ some loose rock.

A fun climb, a very hot day. 3 of 4 made the summit in good conditions.

A good climb, less crowded than the North Twin but not as asthetic.

Beautiful couple of days on the taller twin. Just as fun as N Twin with a huge, flat summit for a stellar bivy.

First attempt: June 3, 2010
A late start put our group near the summit at 5 pm. We made the call to turn around. See this image of that day.

I returned August 19, 2012 to give the west ridge a second try and this time we made it. By far one of the best trips of the year. So much scramble fun. The twins are amazing!
