 North Twin Cone Peak   

I tried to enter this as a conditions report, but didn't see the option for other peak, only a list of 14ers & 13ers. Did I miss something?

From Kenosha Pass. A very capable vehicle recently drove the road to above treeline, giving us a packed trail. We didn't need the snowshoes we hauled all the way up and down. Recommend a pole. MicroSpikes might help in a few spots but I didn't use mine. It was starting to snow as we were leaving.

North Twin Cone Peak from near treeline. Whatever drove the road made it up some pretty steep stuff. It had a wide wheel base, very high clearance, big UN-chained tires, and a lot of articulation.

Whatever drove the road gave us a packed trail to this rock at 11,767' UTM 439,331 4,363,756 NAD27. North Twin Cone in the background.
