Ascent Trip Report

After summiting Sugarloaf we rested at Pecoy Notch and started our climb up Twin Mt. This was by far the most grueling section of Mt. I hiked so far. I had to rock scramble on all 4's. There was also a part where we had to climb up grabbing on to a tree root. I'm glad to have had my son with me. He had to give me a helping hand on quite a few occasions.Stopped briefly at the northly mt. and then continued on to the better of the two views,the southern mt. This was our first time climbing two 3500ft. mts. Finished in good shape with no soreness or aches the next day. 5th 3500ft mt done.
