Comments: A fine day for these peaks. Summits were socked in at the start so had little hope for views but was treated to nice views at Galehead Hut as well as the viewpoint ascending to Galehead. Shortly after summiting S Twin the skies cleared substantially with all but the Presidentials clearing. It was nice crossing paths and chatting with Phil W. Congratulations on July! it was also nice chatting with and hiking for a bit with a hiker working on their 48 and their 85 year old father descending from N Twin.
