Ascent Trip Report

This was the second peak of the day; this trip report only covers the traverse from Twin Peaks to Twin Peaks West Peak.

We then headed over to Twin Peaks West peak mostly XC and the occasional faint use-trail. We found multiple duck trail (one high, one slightly lower) on the traverse. Reached the summit block and found the register. The register had very old entries (1960's). Likely the oldest entries I've encountered to date at a peak. Had lunch here. Returned XC to intersect the Twin Peaks use trail midway down towards the Waterman-Twin Peaks saddle.
