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.
Middle Sister is in the heart of the Oregon Cascades. I haven't climbed this route in a number of years, so I'm looking forward to the adventure!
We'll be leaving town early Friday morning, June 24th. Depending on how the climb goes, we may return to ton Saturday night or Sunday afternoon.
