|Peak:||Geissler Mountain West (13er)|
|Route:||Independence Lake Trail|

With East Geissler, UN13,545, and Twining Peak.
The valley is very soggy with water running down the trail. Even when you turn offtrail and head up to the saddle between the Geisslers one has to maneuver around marshes and bogs. Most snow can be avoided but I chose to use some of it as it supported me. The saddle has a remnant of a cornice but there is a notch in the snow to pass through. Class 2+ to an interesting, sharp summit with a long drop to the NE and a 40' drop to the SW.
