Comments
Comments: 4 hrs to No Twin, another 1 hr to So., 1 more to hut. Gale R trail snow soft, postholed on occasion despite snowshoes. No crampons or microspikes necessary.
Herd path around lower 2 crossings on No Twin well-broken. Some to and fro-ing just below No Twin summit. Trail thru col well-broken. Gale R down low eroded and required imagination to follow.
