The other lower peak is named South Twin (3,566 m). North Twin is the third highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, after Mount Robson and Mount Columbia. The massif was named The Twins in 1898 by J. Norman Collie and Hugh M. Stutfield. The decision to name the peaks separately was approved February 28, 1980. In addition to North Twin and South Twin, the massif contains a northern subpeak of North Twin known as Twins Tower, 3,627 m (11,900 ft). This sits atop the famed north face of the massif (see below), and was named in 1984.
