North Sister, Obsidian TH

Postby Bob Burd » Wed May 30, 2012 5:02 pm

A group of us are looking to climb North Sister next Tuesday. It appears that McKenzie Pass is plowed but not yet open to vehicles, according to the latest info I could find on the ODOT website. We'd rather not walk the extra five miles up from Alder Creek if we can help it. Does anyone know if the Obsidian TH can be reached by car yet, or the likelihood of being able to do so in the next week? Alternately, has anyone been to the Pole Creek TH and can comment on the road conditions for 2WD, low clearance? Thanks in advance...

I'd love to hear some conditions after your climb. I'm looking to be up there in about a week.

I'm going to be in that area next week for a class, and after was looking at S.Sister or McLoughlin. If I hear of any road or trail updates, I'll share them as well.

Alas, the weather gods turned on us and we in turn, being the coddled Californians used to sunny skies, turned tail. Perhaps next time... :-)
