Middle Sister via Hayden Glacier

July 2-3, 2005

Eight of us left Pole Creek Trailhead about 11:30. We hiked in to a flat spot at 7,200 feet at the base of Hayden glacier, where we camped.

We left camp Sunday morning at about 3:40, roped up on the glacier, and were climbing by 4:30. The sun came up at 5:30 and cast a red glow across the glacier. We had no unexpected difficulties, and reached the summit by 7:20. We had great weather, not a cloud in the sky, and we could see from Adams to Crater Lake. We started the descent just after 8:00 and were back to camp by 10:30.

This was a very enjoyable climb on an interesting route. Climbers were Jan Anselmo, Rich Anselmo, Wayne Deeter, Brian Hamilton, Larry Huff, Juli McGlinsky, Rich Peever, and Mark Slipp (leader).
