I climbed the massive pile of choss known as North Sister last weekend with Lila and her friend Matt. I don't have a whole lot of great things to say about this mountain except the views to the south of Middle and South Sisters, Broken Top, and Bachelor are incredible. I can't even say I'd recommend this climb to anyone who doesn't like endless ball-bearing scree slogging. Matt seems to like this sort thing on the other hand seeing how this was his third time up the beast (and he even has plans for a fourth). In the end it was a fun* day out in the mountains and as a reward for carrying on to the summit a 2,000'+ scree slide deposits you back to the trail in a matter of minutes.
Sunrise. A huge pile of rubble. Oh wait, that's North SIster... The fun begins. Matt on the summit. South Sister (with Middle hiding on the right). Ok, I guess it wasn't all that bad. The summit block has the best "rock" on the whole thing! Matt in his element on the descent.
