Ascent Trip Report

After a really challenging descent from the Twins, we finally got to the Galehead hut where we broke for lunch and refreshing. The ascent of Galehead was the easiest of the trip. Felt like it took us only 15 minutes or so from the hut. Had a really nice outlook just before the peak. Number 7 of the trip.
