Mostly dry until about 10,500. We refreshed a nice trench from there to treeline. Booted it at first then switched to snowshoes after repeated postholing in soft snow. Back to boots after treeline. Microspikes were nice to have, but not mandatory for firm snow as we approached the summit of Twin Peaks A. The summit was heavily corniced.The firm snow continued for the short jaunt from Twin Peaks A to Twin Peaks South. On descent snowshoes were necessary from treeline back to 10,500 to avoid deep postholing as the snow had soften considerably.
