Middle Sister

Saturday–Sunday, June 24–25, 2017
Leader: Maryanne Reiter
Climb: 18 miles, 5300 ft

We had a fine climb on Middle Sister and were able to stay cool until the hike out. Eight Obsidians hiked into high camp (7200') on Saturday and found a great spot that accommodated all of us. We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and melting snow for drinking water. We arose early on Sun, hiked up to the saddle and set up a fixed line up the steep snow of the North Ridge. Soon after we all stood on top, the views and weather all outstanding. After numerous summit treats, we headed back down, got to camp and packed up and hiked out.

Members: Maryanne Reiter, Kellie Green, Daniel Manning, Laura Osinga. Nonmembers: Kana Moll, Dan Claric, Blake Andrews, Zane Andrews.
