Glad we didn't come up this way. Brutal enough coming down. Take the Robinson Variation up if you can. That is a great route.
Liked this climb, but will definitely look forward to possible other routes up.
Went up through Broads Fork in 100+ degree heat. Climbing in uncomfortable boots during such hot, dry conditions made it one of the most difficult hikes I've undertaken, but overall it was very rewarding. The views from the lower meadow, the saddle below East Twin Peak, and the summit itself were first class. The most tiring part of the climb was the seemingly never-ending talus field leading up to the Cottonwood Ridge. The steep scrambling above the saddle was quite exhilarating. Because of the blistering heat, we wisely decided to forego the traverse to West Twin Peak and turned around after obtaining the higher East Twin Peak. See "Beating the Heat" trip report for details.
Drug a friend up here and made our way up crappy scree clope and played on sunrise while waiting for partner.
A dozen times or so.
