Ascent Trip Report

Approach to Dailey Prairie not found, so bushwacked up spur leading onto W ridge; original objectives were Skookum and S Twin, but found to be way too far following this approach, so opted for North Twin this time instead; excellent scrambling in rock shoes along W ridge to summit with some limited exposure in sections (depending on the route chosen); excellent rock in most places, so did some "recreational" climbing on the obelisk and comb; descent was somewhat painful after a full day in the rock shoes, which was then followed by the worst bushwack in history to find Greg's truck again; this peak would be a fairly quick day following the correct approach along the logging roads :)
