Ascent Trip Report

Wow, hiking the twins in winter was a tiring experience, but we were rewarded this 0 degree day with some amazing vistas. The snow crust on south twin was about 6 inches thick, weighing the trees down for an even better view. It would have been a good idea to have snow shoes on since we post holed quite a bit. A good trip to car spot an get Gale also, but returned over North twin for an 11 hour hike.
