Trip: North Twin Sister - West Ridge

Date: 11/28/2015

Trip Report:
I broke my last camera over a year ago and Josh forgot his, so all we took are crappy camera phone shots that I'm not going to bother to upload [Josh: if you got any good ones maybe throw them or a link to them in the comments?].
Anywho, we climbed the west ridge of north twin on Saturday. To my surprise, we had the whole mountain (whole range?) to ourselves for the day.

Gear Notes:
There was a good deal of snow on north aspects but the route itself was surprisingly passable, we didn't break out the pons until the final 100 ft, although they were mandatory for the north route descent.

Approach Notes:
As we anticipated, the road is not, in my view, terribly bikable at the moment, there was about 4-6in. of snow from a mile or two in, and thick frost and ice before that.

Enough snow to skin up most of the road?

Depends on how much you like your skins. There was not more than an inch or two of loose, dry, powder until after the signed junction.
