CascadeClimber Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 Climb: North Sister-Thayer Glacier Headwall Date of Climb: 5/31/2004 Trip Report: Dave and I were trying the Triple Traverse/Three Sisters Marathon. We got spanked by snow conditions, but had fun on North anyway. Climbers on the Southeast Ridge Dave downclimbing from the summit. North is in great shape right now: Lots of snow, minimal choss. Long winded TR with more pics Gear Notes: Walking axe, helmet (a must), skis and rando boots for descent. We skipped the rope, though I wouldn't advise unless you're very comfortable on rimey AI2+ with exposure. Approach Notes: Trail is dry to Soap Creek. Firm snow at night to the moraine. Awful postholing on the headwall. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
