Oregon Cascades

The Oregon Cascades: Ugly step-child to its bretheren in Washington and B.C.? Or is there more than meets the eye? Well…..let’s face it, the rock quality in the Oregon Cascades leaves a lot to be desired. But you have to work with what you’re given and if you look around, there’s some really beautiful mountains here!

On this page, we’ll share our experiences (and photos!) climbing some of the mountains in the Oregon Cascades.

Mt Hood (11239 ft / 3426 m)
South Sister (10358 ft / 3157 m)
Middle Sister (10056 ft / 3065 m)
Broken Top (9175 ft / 2797 m)
Three Fingered Jack (7841 ft / 2390 m)
Mt Washington (7794 ft / 2376 m)
The Wife (7054 ft / 2150 m)

Looking South from Middle Sister, you can see South Sister and Broken Top here. On this clear day, we could see all the way down to Mt Shasta in Northern California.

Looking North from the summit of Middle Sister: you can see Mt Washington, 3 Finger Jack and Mt Jefferson here.
