Lost and Found:  
Comments: North Twin was our 48th peak but we saved the champagne for fireside after the hike. Just cold enough today to keep us moving. Short breaks and eating while hiking. There was enough ice here and there to break out the old microspikes and jam them into more rocks. Great to see Steve and Wayne on the Twinway doing a mega-hike! Passed Franco and Emerel on the Twinway below the stairs. Lend-a-hand always a bear to take on late in the day but we made light work of it and got right up there. Ice slowed us down a little bit but all in all a great day out. Thank you Chris for a fill round and another first!
