Broken Top is a heavily eroded volcano with spectacular views of the Three Sisters. It's a fairly easy ascent - a bit of easy snow and one very short section (10 feet) of 5.1 rock climbing.

Activity Notes

We got permits y'all! Hard to come by in 2021. How does lounging at sunny Green Lakes sound, with a few summits thrown in? Bring your air mattress, ice axe, and rock skills this linked climb has it all.   The agenda will include hiking into Green Lakes, setting up camp and eating a quick early lunch, before tagging Broken Top that first day (including a protected rock scramble). Maybe a dip in the lake before dinner upon return? Then a chill snow climb of South Sister the following day (with more swimming after that summit day). A second night at Green Lakes, and then a hike out the third day. Fun!  Find Activity Financial Aid Info here:
