Ascent Trip Report

I soloed South Sister and Mt Bachelor the day after a wonderful climb up the Whitewater Glacier route on Mt Jefferson with Dave Covill and his 4 friends. I left the trailhead at 6:20am after a short night sleep in a Bend hotel. I arrived on top in 2:40 hrs at 9:00am. 5 minutes on top, then headed down, reaching the car by 11:05. 4:45 hours round trip. Running shoes and ski poles. Only a few snow patches to traverse. Otherwise a really fast trail with approx 50 people along the way.
I finished early, so hiked up Mt Bachelor on the drive back to Portland for my flight home to Anchorage that night.
