Via Bushnell Peak, Southwest Slopes DescentPosted On:

The traverse from Bushnell Peak was almost entirely dry, and what little snow there was could be avoided. Twin Sisters South blocks the way but is easier than it looks from Bushnell. The real meat of Twin Sisters North is getting off of it. Perhaps the best descent is to go partway back to Bushnell and down, but I went directly down the southwest slopes which are unrelentingly steep and loose. The upper portion to treeline is not fun; be careful not to roll a boulder onto your feet and legs. Once at treeline things become easier and the terrain funnels into one of two small drainage gullies and things then begin to flatten out as the route approaches the road. From that point, assuming the road was used as as the ascent route, just retrace back down the road to where you parked.
