Comments
Comments: All trails are well traveled with next to no postholes; very good conditions. We bushwhacked SW twin from Twinway, south of the two sub bumps; we followed the ridge, favoring north per Per's advice. Woods were reasonable with the only tighter sections being just below the summit. Snow was mainly supportive with occasional soft spots and traps.

We bushwhacked north off of Galehead, finding fairly good going, except for a couple of 'steps' we had to lower ourselves down.

Thanks Per and Cory for a good hike.
