First see report for North Twilight. NE ridge of Twilight does not go due to deep gash about 2/3 of the way up; this gash may not be obvious from summit of North Twilight. Instead, follow ridge about halfway up, then descend some 80' to the right (south). I found a small (10' wide) rubble gully running south, followed it down to a larger gully coming down from the summit, then crossed that to re-ascend via a narrow (3' wide) mixed grass/scree shelf until I had roughly gained back the elevation I had lost. From there it is a fun scramble on large, stable boulders straight up to the summit area. The transition from the descending rubble gully to the narrow shelf was the crux; was very loose and required a couple of Class 3+ moves. Ridge to South Twilight is Class 2.
