Broken Top, Northwest Ridge Route

After recovering from a knee injury sustained in a bicycle crash, Chris chose Broken Top as his be-back climb. Chris and his daughter Brianna made it as far as the saddle of the northwest ridge before calling that their summit. It was good to see Chris back in the mountains again and to meet Brianna on her first climb. Bill, Larry and Craig enjoyed forty-five minutes soaking up the view from the summit before calling it a day.
