trail?

In the center of the photo there is a lighter tan line along the side of a ridge. Is that the trail on over to Twin Peaks? Does the route follow the ridge that kinda of ambles to the right in the picture behind you, then back left or is it on the other side of that ridge? Just trying to get a feel for these two as I would like to get back there next year and do these. Thanks!

Re: trail?

Brian - Yes ... you correctly ascertained the route we took. That trail goes over the saddle and drops down to Legore Lake. Cross the lake basin below the lake and ascend the intermediate ridge shown below Twin Peaks diagonaling to the right, then go left on summit ridge (skyline) to the summit pinnacle. It is way steep and exposed on the other side of the intermediate ridge, so when you get to the top of it the route is obvious (visibility allowing). - Cory
