Broken Top is a heavily eroded volcano with spectacular views of the Three Sisters. The ascent from the Park Meadow side will take you cross country for a good portion of your climb but will meet up with the standard NW Ridge climbing route. This is a less traveled route with a slightly shorter drive from Portland. You'll get beautiful views of the lesser seen north side of the mountain. Some snow climbing may be encountered depending on the time you climb. Probably slope degree would be about 35 degrees.
