Twin Sisters, “Skookum Peak.” The Twin Sisters Range has a number of peaks ranging between 5600 and 6700 feet which are worthwhile climbs on solid granite rock. On May 31, 1969, Dave Dixon and I made a first ascent of this 6500-foot peak located about 2/5 of a mile south of the South Twin Sister. We ascended the 450-foot northeast ridge in four leads with the last section of the ridge being F4 to F5 in difficulty. The peak was named after Skookum Creek which originates in the vicinity.
