As last time, had the summit to myself.
I also put up a new register and rebuilt the summit cairn.
Long but rewarding day.
Crossed over from the Twin Sister Peaks. This one had some fun scrambling, enjoyable ascent.
With Twin Sisters Peak East & West
Better than the two Peaks in my opinion because no one goes to this one. Left W. Peak seeing two people and came back to 40 people. Take the time to check out South Sister.
Hiked up from the Twin Sisters Trailhead, bypassing the Twin Sisters to the east on the way there. A winter storm was blowing in the west. When I started the hike I could see Longs Peak with no problem, but when I was on the summit of Twin Sisters Mountain, Longs was obscured by cloud. I hurried tagged both of the Twin Sisters and headed down. By the time I got to my vehicle about 4 inches of snow had fallen.
Hiked over to Twin Sisters Mountain via Twin Sisters Peaks (confusing!). I actually thought this was the better mountain. Prolly b/c there's no trail over there!
Great weather all day!
Hiked the South Sister Route from Twin Sisters Trailhead. There were a lot of low clouds in the area, and 'South Sister' wasn't even visible when approaching from the east side of East Twin Sisters Peak. However, the clouds lifted shortly after arriving at the saddle between the two peaks. Longs Peak was in the clouds all day and the Diamond was never visible. Although dozens of people ascended Twin Sisters Peaks that day, I saw nobody on 'South Sister'.
