Trip Report    

Basic Alpine Climb - North Twin Sister/West Ridge

Stellar route and crew for a special trip.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The route was in great shape. Easy travel to the ridge, snow-less ridge scrambling throughout the ridge, and then a perfect glissade back down.   Left crampons in the car and they weren't needed.

Using Mt bikes, it took about 1.5 hrs to the bike drop, and a total of ~5:30 to the summit.  Back at the cars at 8:30 car to car.  Really awesome and efficient crew.  stayed close to ridge top for much of it.  Brought some ropes and harness, but they were only used for style points.
