Did a big thirteener loop in the Indy pass region. We went from 13,500 to Twining to 13,545 to 13,001, to East Geissler ending in West Geissler. Followed Suprahnihelist's tracks and had a pretty good time of it. Snow was generally avoidable except on the descent from Geisler Pass and the trip from 13,545 to 13,001. We were lucky to have hit the snow early on the latter as it made for very easy travel.

Great views, nice day, no complaints. The ridge was quite fun with nothing over 3rd class unless you searched it out.

Surprisingly Pt. 13,001 was a blast and one of my favorite 13ers I have done. It was secluded and has some really fun scrambling, highly recommended.

Big ups to the guy who let us hitchhike back up to Indeoence pass. I hope the wedding goes great.
