Blue bird skies, hot sun  Sucess!

The skies were incredibly clear today, but the heat was oppressive (in my opinion). I enjoyed both summits of this peak, but certainly the higher, eastern summit was my favorite. It's a nice scramble to the top and the east summit is much quieter and more private. Climbing partners: Pat's CMC trip.

Second times a charm  Sucess!

Years before I hike Twin Sistes with my brother from the old trail head, so now I have hiked it from both trailheads. Nice hike with great views of Longs Peak and the Continental Divide as well as the Mummy Range and the eastern plains.

trail, long ago  Sucess!

Exact date is something of a guess. I was 16; this was a brief tune-up before Longs.

My winter F.A.  Sucess!

After wearing myself out on the Longs Peak Trail wallowing through deep snow with a pack full of rope and other technical gear, I gave up and decided to give Twin Sisters a shot. Although I was already physically drained, I did manage to climb both the East and West Sisters. It was very windy, but not too cold.

Winter  Sucess!

Windy and snowy, which made it more fun. Scrambled around the top on the 2 sisters. Fun day with Eric.

Twin Sisters  Sucess!

Sep 18 2005: Wife and I.

Oct 10 2010: Wife and I did all three Twin Sisters this time. Why are they twins if there are three of them?

With a marmot...  Sucess!

Climbed this in the summer of 1992. There was a marmot who would practically eat out of your hand.

Excellent Views  Sucess!

Continous uphill grade, though not so bad that one is out of breath. Good trail the entire way. Excellent views from the top, especially of Longs Peak and RMNP.

Good times  Sucess!

This was a very fun and relaxed hike. The condition of the Twin Sisters Trail is excellent all the way to the top. It took us 2 hours to get up and 1 down. I’d recommend any early start just to avoid the large number of tourists that start mid morning. Excellent views of Longs Peak on the way up, and great 360 views on top, as well as some bighorn sheep if you are lucky.

What a great hike  Sucess!

I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. Hit the trailhead at 5:45, got to the top at 7:20, and enjoyed fantastic views in all directions at 7:21. Had the peak all to myself for almost a full half hour. The family of bighorn sheep hangin out near the top was really cool.

Piece o'cake  Sucess!

Day after running the Bolder Boulder, decided to go on a short day hike with my brother before heading our separate ways. Beautiful view of Longs from the top, easy conversational hike wherein no breath was lost. A fun day with the brother, topped off by beers at Estes Park Brewery (I've had better microbrew to be certain...).

Post holing in April  Sucess!

We had superb weather for the hike; nearly clear skies, warm temps, light winds, and long views. The only drawback was the warm temps majorly softened the snow on the way back down and we were postholing up to our waist in spots, until we got back down into the shady areas. The shady spots were better, but very slick, as 95% of the trail was still snow-covered.
