Ascent Trip Report

Even in mid September, needed to pay attention at the 3-river crossings at the beginning of the North Twin Trail. Steep ascent to reach the North Twin summit; all that work and no views but a short jog over the North Twin Spur to South Twin with fantastic 360 degree views. Over the Twinway to the Galehead Hut. Milton and I hung out at the Hut. We already did Galehead last winter. Raja, Diane & Oleg went on the summit. Garfield Ridge Trail and down Gale River Trail
