Comments: Great hike of these peaks. nice to see the water is on at the hut. Spring conditions with swiss cheese monorail some supportive lots not improved slightly at Gale River Trail intersection. micros today until the last 1000 feet to the summit of S Twin. bareboots from this point until descending N Twin then micros until 3400 feet. It was nice chatting several at the summit of S Twin.
