Ascent Trip Report

Started early - and it was a chilly, chilly day. Sub zero most of the day. Bitter cold wind atop Garfield and South Twin, but most of the rest of the day was sheltered. Luckily, we found most of the trails broken out. Due to cold temps, most of the group turned back at Galehead hut. Jeff and I continued on to the Twins. Moved fast to stay warm. Few views due to clouds - but some sun here and there. Brrrrr.
