Day 6 of 6 day Colorado hiking trip. Forecast called for rain. Left Independence Pass at 6:00 a.m. hurrying up the slopes hoping to reach the summit before the storm came. Reached the top at 7:00. Rain began. Everything to the west was in clouds. Took a few pictures and basically ran down the slopes to reach the pass at 7:30. At least got to bag something.
During a week-long Sawatch trip with the wife, we wanted a shorter hike on a day with a bad forecast. So we went up Pt 13,500 from Indy Pass, and I went over to Twining as well.
quick 13er from independence pass, added twining and started home earlier than i could have imagined.
Climbed twice, both times from Independence Pass on the way to climb Twining Peak. First on 6/7/07 and second on 11/4/12.
Long day with other peaks: UN12,542, Mountain Boy & Igloo Peaks, UN13545 and Twining Peak. Great weather!
We hiked this peak as an acclimation hike before attempting Elbert the next day. What an exhilarating hike!!
