Ascent Trip ReportOriginally planned to do a 3-Day trip and hit Lafayette, Garfield, Galehead, South Twin, and North Twin. Got to Garfield Ridge Trail and experienced 70 MPH winds and snow/hail. Hiked back down into the treeline and camped for the night, hoping to try again the next day with better weather. Woke up in the a.m. with an inch or two of snow on us and decided to descend and try again some other time.
