Ascent Trip Report

Officially designated by USGS marker circa 1907. There is no maintained trail to the summit. The lesser summit is South of the prominent North Twin. Easiest access is via ridge north of summit but can be acheived via east ridge. Much bushwacking from east approach. A sheer cliff of 1000' defines the northwest face of this mountain. Great camping and staging sight from S Beehive lake below.
