Great Climb  Sucess!

One of the greatest climbs in the Wasatch. Will have to scan some of the photos and post them.

    First ascent solo  Sucess!

    Summited via Robinson Variation, was eyeing the triple traverse but I'd already started late and was alone with a rapidly diminishing water supply. Definitely a fun one to add to the list, but I don't see myself doing this too frequently unless via a different route or as part of a longer traverse.

    Robinson Variant  Sucess!

    Nice surprise from Sam Grant & Greg Jagielski- really enjoyed this one. Slabby climb up an avalanche chute and a few spicy moves after gaining the ridge. Descended to the gulch trail.

    The Tripple Traverse  Sucess! Check out our video on you tube at Peaks in the bag for a full trip report. Climbed twin from the Robinson Variation and I would recommend that over the regular Broads fork route

    First day on twin via Broads fork  Sucess!

    Would recommend the Robison Variation, Its way more enjoyable than the main Broads fork route

    Via Broads Fork  Sucess!

    Climbed via Broads Fork with Brandon Stanger and Kaden Robinson. Incredibly fun class 3 working up to the twins. Great climb with two great partners!

    Broads Fork Twin Peak

    Made the ridge but did not continue. Not in good enough condition to make it from bottom to top. I’ll probably try a again from a camp in the upper basin to make it doable.

    Happy 4th of July  Sucess!

    Final peak of a Cottonwood Traverse scramble starting at Mill B and hitting Superior first.

    Chased away  Sucess!

    A huge thunderstorm rolled in on the descent and I was moving fast to get back to my truck. Went up the Robinson route, or so I thought but pretty sure I ended up on the north ridge and had to figure out that fun downclimb on the cliffy stuff. Guess I'll be back for the other two peaks

    Attempt #2 FAIL  Sucess!

    Overnight solo trip up BF. Made awesome time to the approach below the saddle. Tripped on the freaking ASCENT on the scree that is ever so abundant. Sprained my wrist really bad (Puffed up instantly) and knew I wouldn't be able to do the crux (Rock wall leading to saddle). I was pissed. Next time Twins, NEXT time!

    Triple Traverse on the First Go  Sucess!

    Came up from the Robinson Variation. Great way up. Bagged both Twins then headed to Sunrise and Dromedary. Easier than I thought it was going to be but still a good challenge. Saw some mountain goats on the north ridge.

    BF Twins attempt #2 - Unsuccessful AGAIN!

    BF Twin Peaks attempt # 2. Camped the night in the meadow about 8500ft. Woke up early and made extremely good time to the base of Twins Peak and the ascent. Half way up the the ascent, I took a spill down the shale slopes on the ASCENT (grrrrr) when a rock gave way and sprained my wrist pretty bad trying to brace my fall. I WAS SO PISSED! Couldn't climb up the scramble to the shoulder with a wrist I couldn't put weight on.
    All in all, it was still an amazing experience. I didn't see one other person the whole time I was up there. Got some awesome pictures, and a damn good work out. I weighed myself the day of and again after. I lost 9 pounds on this climb. This is a grueling trek for sure.
    3rd time's the charm!

    Broads Fork Twin - 1st attempt - Unsuccessful

    This was my first attempt doing this mountain, and first time in BF. It was so much more amazing than I was anticipating. Dromedary, Sunrise & Jepsons Folly all can be seen from the lower meadow. But at the time of this climb I was about 185lbs. (I am now 165lbs). This is a LONG hike to even get to the base of Twins. Thats when the real work starts, and also when my legs cramped up. Game over. Got between 10,500 and 10,800 ft. 9 to 10 miles round trip.

    Second 11'er  Sucess!

    Kind of hazy, 4th of July ascent.. took the standard route.. plan to do Robinson's next time! Dream hike, always looked up towards the Twins and became obsessed with climbing them one day!

    4th of July  Sucess!

    Climbed the traditional route on the 4th of July. Looking forward to going back and trying a few other variations.

    Broads Fork  Sucess!

    Fun long hike up to the top via Broads Fork. Beautiful day for a hike and had spectacular views all around. Definitely one of my favorite hikes around the area.

    Tough, Long, Rewarding Hike  Sucess!

    The best method up is from the lower S-Curve (parking lot if you can a spot). Here, at about 6,125', you've 6.5-7.0 miles of moderate to difficult hiking to the top of Broad's Fork Twin Peak at 11,330'.

    "We scrambled up, down, and across loose rocks, up and over rock walls (some low class 5 material with significant exposure), and up steep, loose couloirs to the summit of Broads Fork Twin Peaks 6.5 miles from the trailhead."
    -SchLife Life is Good (circa 2010).

    Many say that the hike is 3.5 miles, one way; that figure is wrong. Starting at about 6,125' at the S-Curve to the top you've a total vertical for at about 5,200'. Find further proof of mileage in the above "SchLife is Good" quote, one covers this ~5,200' vertical in about 6.5 miles -- one way, making it 13 miles round trip to the East Peak of these Broad's Fork Twin Peaks.

    I just hiked it today with my son (August 1, 2015). I can guarantee that after 40 years of hiking (e.g., King's Peak, Honey Comb Cliffs, Mt. Olympus, etc.) there's no way the hikers out there could climb the peak in highly suspect [i.e., incorrect] 3.5-3.8 miles one way from the bottom of S-Curve - unless one could fly a straight line up there like a bird. Again, the above quote from "SchLife is Good" AND my pedometer put this climb in the 6.5 - 7.0 miles one way and a 13-14 round trip range. (My body and my son's bodies' painful condition both tells us that too.)

    Via Standard Route up Broads Fork  Sucess!

    We climbed the crack on the way up to the summit and then down the collier on the way down. One heck of a butt kicking hike, we were some sore hikers. The views from the top of this summit are some of the best I've seen, very impressive!

    Logged 5079' ele. gain / 9 miles RT on my GPS

    Also summit'd years ago in Aug. 2001
