Twin Peaks
The two pinnacles of Twin Peaks from the south. The summit points are formed by Columbia flow basalt. The red color is Hurwall Formation that was baked by the basalt. The basalt sits precariously over the unstable lower rock and the southern point (front) has already partially collapsed. September 1998

This is a great pic that really captures how rotten the rock is.

Yes, the crumbly rock really scared the hell out of me.

40 years ago, I used to see Twin Peaks from my Ore. State Forestry tower 30 miles away. Never knew the name of the mysterious peak and always wondered. Tried to narrow it down on the map, but only succeeded for sure when I saw your photos. THANK YOU! Really enjoyed reading your posts.

I like the red. But I'm a little disappointed that there isn't a 5/10 vote in there somewhere! (hehe)

Well, at least "he" took it off, and it now has a more deserving score! He seems spiteful sometimes, eh?
Cheers! Great photo of a cool peak!

Great photo of the crappiest rock I 've ever climbed. Loose, loose, loose, crumbly, shoe-box to softball sized crud. No where to anchor a rope. Had to free climb and twist the rocks to lock them into place. Took 3 attempts to reach the summit. I actually didn't make the last 10 feet, but my brother did a pretty nifty 5.8-5.9 maneuver to get to the top. Read his account of Twin Peaks at "cjwhat" on this site. The first 4000 feet is through about 8 different environs and change with each season. Very spectacular scenery and an adventrous climb. Every mountain has been easy after the last 60 feet of crud on this impressive rock.
