Climbed with my Dad and little bro, and about 300 strangers. First clear day in about a week. The view was worth the climb, we could see the outline of Rainier in the distance. This was our 4th volcano this week, a great way to spend our vactaion time. Next year we are on to Shasta!

Heat wave made an early start a wise move, if a painful one for me. I was a bit slower than I expected, just missing sunrise on the summit. This schedule also avoided most of the crowds.

Natreb and I climbed it in 4 1/2 up and 3 1/2 down, not including the 2 1/2 hours we spent taking tons of great pictures and enjoying this very rewarding summit. HIGHLY REWARDING AND RECOMMENDED SUMMIT!!!!!

Camped at Devils Lake Camp Ground Friday evening. Woke up much too early and climbed up to the summit. It took 9 hours to get to the summit and 4 hours to get back down (Yay for sliding on snow!) We got to the summit at 3:05pm and spent an hour having lunch with excellent views. The mosquitos were absolute hell both at camp and for the first hour or so in the wooded area. Got super sun-burnt cause I neglected the sunscreen... I'll never make that mistake again!

PallandoGreen Lakes over Lewis Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009

Awesome climb. Left at 11:00, but going was slow with some unexperienced members. One rolled ankle before Lewis glacier. Got the sunrise too late at the summit (6:15). Slept, had coffee, and came down.
Checked out the bergschrund on Lewis Glacier. Best glissade (standing) of my life down the snowfields. Also, near green lakes, a large rock had fallen into snow in the winter. It provided shade for the snow underneath it, but the snow around it melted out. What we found was a snow pinnacle with a large flat rock on top. Took pictures.

Drove up to the Devils Lake Campground on Friday evening. Woke up at 5am and left camp at 5:45am. It took 9 hours to get to the summit and 4 hours to get back. We got to the summit at 3:05pm and spent an hour having lunch with excellent views all the way to north toward Mt. Jefferson. It was an amazing trip except for the mosquitoes and sunburn.

23 Jun 2009 - South Ridge
Left Devil's Lake TH at 5:20am, reached the summit at 9:35. Brilliant bluedbird day. The ridge was bare, and the first part of the trail; the rest was snow. Would've been some nice corn turns on skis. Total time was just under 7hrs. A long slog for sure.

2 Aug 2011 - North Ridge
Final peak of a solo Three Sisters Marathon. Left Pole Ck TH at 4:45 am, summitted North Sister around 9:30 am, Middle Sister around 11:20 am, then South Sister at 3:00 pm. Down to car pickup at Devil's Lake at 5:25 pm. North Ridge was mostly scree, but the steep step 2/3 of the way up was most easily bypassed on steep snow (and some ice), although it was pretty sketchy without protection and a rope.

danielrfayRe: South Ridge
Did you need any gear for the climb? I'm hoping to get up the South Sister in about a week. Thanks for any info!

Beautiful fall day not a cloud in the sky, started at Green Lakes TH and enjoyed the forest and stream before cutting over to Moraine Lake. Stunning views even from the base, very different than where I am from. Surprisingly uncrowded given the great weather.

but oh the wind.
Beautiful fall day until the wind came up in the afternoon. Almost blew us off the mountain a few times. There were some unpleasant patches of ice and hard snow. First time up.

Drove up to Bend on short notice because the weather seemed too good to be true for late October. Great hike, no snow to speak of on the trail, perfect temperature, "late summer" conditions. Probably around 50 degrees on the summit at 2pm.

PallandoA Long Way Up  Sucess!

Pallando

My planning friend, his brother and I decided to do South from a different angle.
We left Bend around 3:00 AM headed towards the Broken Top trailhead. It was a full moon which made the hike in really nice. When the sun rose, it was a perfect day and we were close to the NW ridge of Broken Top. We discussed maybe doing Broken Top instead, but we stuck with South.
After a failed attempt at going over the lava (I don't know what we were thinking) we headed to Green Lakes and followed a waterfall up. We popped over the top of the ridge and hit the South Sister trail.
Summit was beautiful and clear. It was terribly hot, I got quite the sunburn.

Gorgeous day. Superb views all the way north to Mount Hood, south to Diamond Peak and Mount Thielsen, west to Mary's Peak, and of course spectacular vantages of Middle and North Sister, Broken Top, Tam McArthur Rim, and Mount Bachelor.
