Ascent Trip Report

Spent the night before and after at Green Lake. Met Matt there after he had to bail on the Sisters Marathon due to ice conditions on North Sister. Stream very full. We took a bit of a non-standard route up on the snow on the lava field past Point 7,880+. Didn't see any people between Green Lake and where we met the main hiker trail. I put day 1's gain of 960 as "extra" since we only did ~4k on summit day. We also dropped and regained ~200 ft over Pt 7,880+. Pics
