Route: Twin Peaks B Saddle Descent after Rinker Peak
Posted On: 2020-10-26, By: jbealer
Info: I agree with supranihilest, this is not a great way to come down, it was dry for us but loose as hell, no soft sponge grass, we slide down loose dirt most of the way, took us 1hr from the summit to the willis trail at the bottom. Just go back to the saddle/slope up to Rinker it will be much nicer to come down. We did not take the ridge.

Info: 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.

Info: Got snow on August 29 while I was hiking there as well as later that evening, but the snow was mostly gone the following afternoon.
