Comments
Comments: Rocket21 already posted a report that tells the story of our hike to North Twin via Galehead and S. Twin as we hiked with him to that point.

Nordic Gal and I bushwhacked the ridge from N. Twin to Peak Above the Nubble. Snow is supportive off trail. The ridge off of north twin, has many thicker sections, but some nice open ones too. I would say that it would be harder without snowpack. Going the short distance from just above the col to PAtN summit was very difficult due to snow loaded, very thick woods. Fairly straightforward trip from PAtN to Fr. 304A using herd paths and open woods.
