North Twilight Peak

Route: From Twilight Peak
Posted On: 2020-08-22, By: supranihilest
Info: Somewhat involved from Twilight Peak. Instead of following the ridge direct we dropped slightly west and traversed north under the ridge crest. A steep dirt and rock gully appeared but we stayed above it and continued on exposed, loose Class 2+ to Class 3 terrain until we were near the eastern edge of ridge. Instead of dropping g directly into the massive notch on the ridge we continued over a rib and down on Class 2+ terrain. The notch descent was Class 2+/Class 3, very steep, and very loose, but not too long. We squeezed past a big boulder at the bottom then 15-20 feet up Class 3 ledges directly to the right, which eventually opened into basic hiking terrain to the summit. To descend we went down towards Twilight and took steep dirt/tslus/grass to the lake in the basin then contoured around and back to Crater Lake.

Info: From Crater Lake, go around lake either way and head for obvious ridge to left. Gain ridge just above treeline and follow until you are some 200' below North Twilight's main east-west running ridge. From here a climber's trail diverges to left (east) but eventually reaches the main ridge. Once on main ridge it is mostly class 2 to summit with a couple 2+ moves required through notches.
