Ascent Trip Report

After the summit of Indian Head we turned back to JD Notch. Went up the Devils Path to Twin Mt. This was my first ascent of Twin from the Jimmt Dolan Notch. Some interesting rock climbs.Our real treat was at Twin South where we were given a beautiful view. Clear,sunny day gave us a unlimited view. Spent some time there and continued on to the North Mt., the true summit. Again, was treated to a beautiful view. Nice view of Sugar Loaf and all the way over to Hunter firetower. Great day, great hike, great company. Returned the way we came.
