From Rinker Peak it's about 30 minutes or so to the southern, higher Twin Peak. The route is mostly talus, and from the Rinker/Twin saddle there are a couple of bumps to be bypassed but no scrambling at all. The best descent is to return via Rinker's south slopes; the Twin Peaks saddle gully descent is terrible, very steep and incredibly loose. I wore microspikes down the gully due to how loose it was. Conditions on this route likely changed significantly between my summit and now; it was snowing and blowing hard and harder while I was up there and there's likely been a decent amount of accumulation up high.
