This is a scramble route to the summit of Middle Sister. No technical skills are required. It is a longer approach than the Hayden Glacier. Note: This route, if properly approached, has NO crevasse crossings. This makes is a slightly less technical route (ie, leave pro, rope and harnesses at home!) than the crevassed approaches from the north side of the peak. It can also offer better skiing conditions.
