Twining Peak Northwest Chutes

*Amazon Affiliate Links

The Northwest facing chutes of Twining Peak, also known as Blue Peak, are challenging and dangerous. Some of them melt out quicker than others, so your line should always be scouted from below before attempting to drop into any of the gullies. Beware of cornice formation and extreme avalanche danger.
