North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Range, Sinister Peak, North Face

Publication Year: 1980.

Sinister Peak, North Face. My brother Carl, Gary Brill and I completed this snow face on August 1. Starting from the Blizzard-Gunsight Col we made a quick traverse across the Chickamin Glacier in order to gain the face at its lowest point. On 45° to 50° névé and ice, a direct line was taken; deviating only briefly to skirt the schrund. After completing the face, we were left with just a short rock scramble to the summit. (NCCS II.)
