Middle Sister via Hayden Glacier

June 27-28, 2009

We had great weather. The usual campsite, normally quite private, was a tent city, so we camped on a ridge to the south. We ended up behind numerous larger groups going up the mountain Sunday morning. Much of the snow had already melted off the north ridge. Due to rockfall from the other parties, and softening snow conditions, we choose to turn back several hundred feet below the summit. Instead, we took a different route back to camp, descending to the top of the Collier Glacier, then down the gully where we were able to examine the exposed ice of the Hayden Glacier. In spite of not summiting, it was a enjoyable trip with wonderful companions. This trip should be done a few weeks earlier—late May or very early in June.

Members: Andrew Jensen, Lauren Herbert, Lili Weldon and Wayne Deeter, leader.
