The northwest ridge is a spectacular hike up a sharp ridgecrest, ending with a short boulder problem up a ten foot wall, followed by a scramble rightward to the summit ridge. If you want to belay the exposed class three climbing, take some VERY long runners and a single rope.

We ended up scrambling up what appears to be the southwest ridge to a second summit at 9,094 ft. spectacular views of from Mt. Adams to Mt.Shasta. Lota scree...eveyone luv's scree right. The Green lakes area was a mob scene! Thank to the Ladies from bend for the ride back to Devils Lake tralhead.

The original plan was to "run" up S.Sister via Moraine Lk. Now it being labor day with the crowds and all, all we decided to push on to green lakes and figure shit out from there. So we figured we would have just as good of a time going up broken top, and less crowds as well, we made the journey. Apparently the less traveled route, we hadn't seen anyone atop broken top.
