DescriptionFrom the where the Sisters Trail passes between the northern formation and the middle formation, face the northern formation and look for a rubbly gully that leads to the west ridge of the North Sister. Beginning at the bottom of the gully, climb the slab on the right-hand wall to a ledge below a distinct, steep crack on the headwall above. Build an anchor on the ledge to belay. Downclimb to descend.
Variation: From the same anchor swing the rope to the right on the other side of the boulder and arete. The right face is slightly harder (maybe 5.3 as opposed to 5.1-5.2 on the left side) but a little more aesthetic.
