Comments
Comments: Bareboot for first two miles up Gale River trail. Microspikes fine from just before new trail to hut and out and back to Galehead. Need at trail crampons or full crampons on steeper section of Twinway to S. Twin. Twinway well packed and snowshoes would work near top but not really needed.
