      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Advice needed for Middle Sister

Recommended Posts

I am looking to climb Middle Sister sometime in mid-late June. I understand that one can approach the mountain either from the east or west. Which approach is best, if either, during that time of year? I would like to spend three days on the mountain, so I am also asking for any suggestions for camp areas that might facilitate multiple routes up either North or South Sister, as well. This might not even be possible, as I don't know the area so well yet. Thanks.

One can easily do both North and Middle in a day. Pole Creek is a better approach. One can go up the SE Ridge on North and gain the regular South Ridge route to the summit, back track to the col with Middle then hike to the top. Then descend from the col back to Pole Creek

You also need permits for the Obsidian limited entry area if you approach from the west. They sell out quickly so plan ahead if you want to come in that way. No special permits needed for Pole Creek, just fill out a wilderness permit in the parking lot.
