From Summitpost.com: The Twin Sisters Range, which lies to the southwest of Mt Baker in Washington State provides some of the most wonderful scrambling to be had anywhere. The entire range is composed of rock which is . . . extremely rough and provides an overabundance of handholds and footholds to climbers. A mountain bike approach is the preferred way to access this peak, as private logging roads are often gated.
