I don't deserve to sign the real climbers log because I only climbed the back side behind the lake. I totally botched the hike in, turning before Green Lakes on the trail sign that said "Broken Top" instead of continuing onward. By the time I realized the error it was too late. It was beautiful up there but the threat of thunderstorms was too great to hang out and enjoy the views. From Green Lakes trailhead it was still an 11 hour day.

Lakes were gorgeous, summit was great. Definitely a little bit of a pucker factor on the crux step, at least for a piker like me. Made a sling out of a 30 ft length of webbing and slung it through the rappel sling for the down climb. Yes, I am a wimp.

Climbed directly up using the crack on the summit block. Had the peak to myself in the early morning, excellent views!

Awesome climb, maybe my favorite ever. It really pushed me to a new level. Now I just want to climb hard stuff!

My first time up Broken Top. Fantastic climb, the exposure and summit block were not nearly as bad as I expected. Awesome scree descent from the summit. I love this mountain.

Second time up Broken Top via green lakes and NW Ridge. Great climb, my favorite in Oregon! The exposure at the top is not all that bad, just be careful of that infamous, lose, cascadian rock.

The drive up to the Broken Top trail head is one of the most scenic and roughest roads I have been on. This climb was more fun than I had expected.

The exposure at the top is not too bad, although magnified by its crumbling nature. The descent was quite fast going down the scree slopes. Green lakes were indeed green.

Climbed the NW Ridge on a beautiful fall day with Dan & Jim Butler. Approached from Park Meadow trailhead and used Golden Lake as a base for two nights out.
We intentionally left the rope at the truck and I'm glad we did. You'll want to be comfortable down-climbing the rock band (it's fairly steep). Our way past the crux was perhaps 30 feet right of the 'wide crack' on the rock band. The wide crack looked quite solid, but seemed a little more 'exposed'.
Cat Walk was a stroll - just don't dally about and fall off.

I saw Broken Top in the distance after hiking up the Tam MacAurther Rim. So I hiked to it, but stopped short due to time contraints, and lack of sufficient food or water. I definitely want to come back!

Attempted the day after south sister, but just wasn't feeling up for it. Quit about 1/3 of the way up the ridge. I'll definitely come back for this one.

This was a nice day hike, but the scree is nasty. I'd much rather do this one in the winter and ski down.

Let's just call this Class 4 and be done with it. Hard to understand the YDS ratings between 5.1 and 5.3.

NW ridge and catwalk. Soloed and tried to protect the first 5-10' section with a couple nuts, easier to just climb it.

I have climbed BT successfully twice, one with my friend Mike B., and once with the Obsidians. One of my favorite climbs with stupendous views. The last time, with the Obsidians, I left before the group to get sunrise pictures and got to with 200 feet of the summit in less than an hour from camp.

Great hike, we came from Green lakes area, up the ridge, went a bit right from the big crack (4-5 class). Some snow on the route but not anywhere near enough to necessitate snowgear. Really fun...

The Green Lakes Trail is now one of my favs, beautiful hike along the creek
