We climbed the west ridge of the north twin quite a few years ago to discover masses of lady bugs on the summit. The were massed in bunches about 15 cm across and so deep you couldn't see the rock beneath them. Very strange.
I remember the rock like coarse sandpaper! The descent off the north face makes for a pleasant exit. One of the more pleasant class 3 day climbs.
