North and Middle Sister

July 28-29, 1973

On Sat. some twenty people climbed up to the Saddle between the two Sisters. It was one of the warmest afternoons I’ve ever seen on the mountains. Fortunately there were little streams from each snow field to keep us supplied with cold water. We threw down our packs on the Saddle late in the afternoon and 12 of us still had strength to zip up the Middle. It seemed unusual to gain a summit at 7:30 in the evening. Back at Saddle we spent a very warm night and looked up at a Zillion stars.

Started the next morning up the North at a reasonable 8:20 and were there by noon. We had a very amiable group and we were all signed up and munching lunch by 12:00. Beautiful day and NO people. There were only four other people on the North that Sunday besides us. Can you believe it! The 12 stalwarts climbing both the Middle and North were: Don & Jim & John England, Brian & Lee & Wayne Hatch, Dick Moffitt, Jim Cagle, Alan Curtis, Tom Lockhart, Jon Pelkey, John Taylor, All twenty climbed the North on Sunday and in addition to the above 12 were the following: Marge Brittain, Paula Moffitt, Parker Riddle, Gene Thaxton, Dick Frankel, Chuck Haddad, Roger Hayes, Norman Skurdal and the leader was Dick Moffitt.
