South Sister

August 3-4, 1973

Party left Green Lakes at 5 a.m. for climb via the west (Red) Ridge. We wasted some time going too far to the right of the regular route prior to coming up the Lewis Glacier. Required to make a traverse on loose rock to our left just before arriving at the lateral moraine of the glacier. Rest of the climb was uneventful. Beautiful weather although windy. Wind not bad on top however. Arrived on summit at 9:15 a.m. First party up with many following. Had lunch on top. Everyone made the summit. All off the mountain by 12:30. James Kemp made the climb barefoot! (Put shoes on for the climb down.) Six of the party climbed their first mountain in good shape. Those receiving summit certificates were: Dave Canary, Brad Carver, Dick Johnson, James & Gary Kemp, Jeff Mapp, Curt Schneider, Randy Zustiak, assistant leader (very responsible young man) and Ed Harms, leader.
