Comments: It was a goegeous day for a hike. We were cruising, took 2:15 hrs or so to get to the hut, and went up galehead, about 15 minutes then back down to the outlook which was goegeous. Then we went back down to the hut and had lunch. I bought a shirt and myself and friend meet some lovely people. Relaxed there in the sun for an hour because we knew we didnt have time to get to north twin today, but still had time for south twin.
Heard it was a slide.... It was not but it was just scrambling over large rocks the entre way up. The longest .8 miles haha it took us just shy of an hour to get up there. Some great ciew up there. Saw a class from plymouth and an old classmate, had out tradition beer at the top then headed back to the car. Took about 40 minutes
Down back to the hut.
We then cruised down to the car in a great 1:50hrs. Total time was 8hrs and 20 min but we relaxed an hour at the hut and a half hour at the top of south twin.
