Ascent Trip ReportI 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 12:00pm after a morning ascent of South Sister. I arrived on top in 1:15 hrs at 1:15 pm. Rain showers were in the area with occasional lightning bursts. I immediately started down, reaching the car in 1 hour at 2:15. Total time 2:15 hours. Some remaining snow slopes allowed fun boot glissading on the upper half of fhe hike. Several other trip reports talk about walking up the ski lifts from Sunshine Lodge, but there is a nice trail that starts right of the bottom lift crossing over the left left of the upper lift. This was a very fast route.
I had pizza for lunch in Bend then drove back to Portland for my flight home to Anchorage that night.
