South Sister

July 1, 2007

At the summit of South Sister, we used a walkie-talkie to call the Obsidian group attempting North Sister. The leader, Wayne Deeter, answered, exchanged a quick greeting, and said, “I’m on the dinner plate right now and really can’t talk!” The dinner plate is the steep snowfield below the summit and the crux of that technical climb. Our group, on the other hand, needed only ski poles. We retreated out of the wind to a sheltered spot on the crater for lunch. The clouds blew on and off the summit all day, but below it was warm and we had some great glissading on the descent. Climbers were Deb Carver, April Anderson, Bob Harrison (assistant leader), Marianne Camp, Audrey Staton, and John Pegg, leader.
