"When approached from the Columbia Icefield, The Twins present gentle snow and ice climbs. North Twin is, in fact, a popular ski ascent. To the north however, the North Twin drops vertically for over 1500 metres towards the Athabasca River. This face is world renowned amongst climbers." -Courtesy Chic Scott
James Outram wrote of these peaks, "Toward the north, above a sharp depression and beyond a magnificent cirque of rock and glacier that separates them from Mount Columbia, were the Twins, the loftier pure white and its brother darkly impressive."
