North Sister- The Black Beast of the Cascades, Ugly Sister. Attempting to climb this deathtrap can be best described as a fools errand. I have climbed it twice and summited only once. I know the easiest route up which is not at all easy and am willing to take a group up.
Route- South East Ridge to south summit. Then traverse west side to "Bowling Alley" next rock climb to rappel point then to North Summit. Reverse direction on descent. In the Bowling Alley I will point out the remains of the "Fallen".
Prerequisites- Have completed a climb school. Know how to belay and rappel. Be not afraid of Heights. You will have climbed Mt Thielsen and Broken Top. You will have climbed either 3 Fingered Jack or Washington also.Signed Up: 7
