Ascent Trip Report

This peak (the 3813-foot one) actually has no name on the map -- the AMC 100-highest list once called it something like "the peak above the nubble". (My oldest guidebook calls it "Peak on North ridge of North Twin, South Twin quad." When you look up towards North and South Twin from the town of Twin Mountain, this is the mountain that has a big check mark on it (made by two slides that run together.) "The Nubble" is a prominent, but much lower peak that rises from a long ridge that comes down from the 3813-foot peak towards Twin Mountain, and is very obvious looking up from the town. The route we took (this was another AMC hike led by Gene Daniell) went into the woods to the west of the peak through a valley, and came up through a nice young birch forest that didn't have much underbrush (this was in 1988, remember). Another feasible route, we heard, was up over the Nubble itself, or to climb up through the check mark. Like most of the bushwhack 100-highest peaks back then, this one had a register at the top.
