Ascent Trip Report

This was a two nighter. Parked at Buckhorn and hiked the road to the top of the lifts then around to Waterman Mountain North, Waterman, Waterman Point & Waterman Benchmark. Took the switchbacks down to the saddle,hit the high point just east off the trail and then up the steep use trail to Twin Peaks (this was tough because our packs weighted 44 & 53 lbs,lots of water)There was a nice open space on the summit to make camp.We dropped our packs, grabbed our food and headed for Twin Peaks West. Got some nice photos on the rocks at the summit and headed back to camp. Set up for the night and got everything ready for the morning attempt of Triplet Rocks.
