At a Scratch-and-Dent sale, I found some Asolo Double Boots (don't know what kind, they were dark green) that fit my friend perfectly. She wants to use them, but most of the stuff I do is in the summer, and not higher than 11k ft.
Looking for a good trip, I suggested South Sister at the end of this month. I live in Sisters, and have been up the Central Oregon peaks plenty of times in the summer. However, this would be my first winter ascent of any peak above 7,000.
I know weather is key. If it looks bad, it's a no-go. But any advise on winter mountaineering, and this mountain especially?
