      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!

North Sister climb

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am looking for info on North Sister, is the traverse and the Bowling alley relatively free of snow by June. Some friends are going then, I plan on later date myself.


I am thinking it will still be pretty solidly snowed in and the top a block of ice in June.


Can anyone confirm or give me some idea.

it is a low snow year this year. things are melting. been warm and rainy. The traverse is probably still got some snow in june, but less than normal. and bowling alley will be clear. highly doubt the top be a solid block of ice in june with the weather patterns we've had thus far.


also look into access--pole creek way is closed until opened by the FS due to fire last year.

might be. but after going 2 for 3 on north over a few years, i think it is best (by that I mean..fastest) when it is dry and you can plan on no snow (no ice ax, no crampons). Later in the summer being better for that.



but ive had fun both ways
