Heather and I hiked up Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Islip, Akawie, Winston, and Lewis the previous day and then finished our trip with Waterman and both summits of Twin Peaks.

Twin Peaks was our favorite of the trip. It had slightly more route finding to keep it interesting as well as steeper rugged terrain. The west summit involves one exposed mantle move and I found an old tin can with the original register dating back to 1967. Awesome!

We took the steep use trail from the saddle up to East Twin Peaks. The views from Twin Peaks are some of the most-emcompassing of the entire area. The broadness of the actual summit was quite surprising given how pin-point the summit appears on approach from Waterman. It was totally dry, no snow whatsoever.

Mark J and I made our own off trail route up to Waterman, then dropped down to pick up the trail merging from Buckhorn, then went to Twin Peaks. We did not use microspikes; they might have been nice for a few points going up to Twin Peaks, but we managed the whole hike with only one snow slide each. The trail from Waterman is nice and much different than hikes lower in elevation or higher in elevation near Baldy; trails were relatively rock free and covered with pine needles. The trail up to Twin Peaks summit was often not visible, so we basically went pretty much straight up off trail when the trail was lost due to snow, and this part was steep. There was a group of 15 other hikers on the summit when we were there. This is a very nice hike, although the return gain up Waterman is not as pleasant as simply reaching the summit then heading back down hill. We returned via the Buckhorn trail, which was pretty easy, but much less direct than the route we took to Waterman. So it was a nice little loop for our first time here.

Traversed from Waterman and thought it was going to be an easy bag until we found the north slope covered in hardened snow, which made for an exhilarating ice climb to the summit (carried crampons and microspikes just in case). Views from the top are as good as advertised.

It was a lovely hike with Waterman from Buckhorn. Large sections of thin snow remained during the final north facing accent.

Took the long way around Waterman Mountain and then down to Twin Peaks Saddle. The final 1200 feet is steep but well worth the effort. Views from East Twin are good but couldn't find a register.

I went from Buckhorn once in the late eighties on a cloudy foggy day. I first was on a false summit and then the clouds parted and I could see the real peak above me. I really enjoyed the view from the summit. The routes up from the canyon below looked like some real fine adventures.

Grabbed Twin Peaks and Waterman today. Warm, and not much breeze, but an early start helped make it a bit better. Nice views in this part of the range.

Out of shape. Got leg cramps. Toughed out to the peak. Struggled more on the way back up from the saddle. Great views and peak.

Nice Peak but only 3 quarts of water was not enough. At this time of year, dispite an early start 5 quarts would have make this far more enjoyable.

Climbed Twin Peaks from 3 Points via the Waterman Trailand then ascended Waterman. Returned to 3 Points using the Waterman's West Ridge via a nice use trail. With Coco the dog.

Hiked from Buckhorn first to Waterman and then to the East Twin. Great views all around. Ran into deers, rattlers, and a bear (between Twin Peak saddle and junction to Waterman).

I didn't bring enough water, especially given the heat, to make it all the way out. Maybe another quarter mile to the rocks. Don't think I'll try it again, though - that ridge was really brutal!
Shredded my gaiters and a pair of work gloves, got covered in sap, chased by wolverines. OK, well maybe not that last one...

Quick out and back on a nice, breezy day. Man, that ridge to the Triplets looks difficult/fun.

Climbed Twin Peaks from Three Points years ago late in the summer. Amazing views from the summit, long and hot hike in and out having my camelback puncture halfway out, then coming inches from stepping on a rattlesnake.
