North Twin is the third highest mountain of the Canadian Rockies, behind Mount Robson (12,972 ft.) and Mount Columbia (12,294 ft.). It is a snowy mountain, rising on the northwest edge of the Columbia Icefield with its smaller counterpart, South Twin (11,675 ft.). It is a gently sloping snow climb from the East. The mountain, however, drops off sharply toward the north and west. An outstanding feature of North Twin is its north face, a steep wall fronted by a subsidiary peak known as Twins Tower. The north face of Twins Tower is a sheer rock precipice rising nearly 4,000 feet from the valley floor.
