The "Five Peaks Traverse" is a mountaineering project that links the summits of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and South, Middle and North Sister in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon.
Yaaaasss! Justin James-Long! Dude, again such a stellar effort!
Thanks Jason!! :) 👊🏻
I see this is listed as the "standard route." Have people tried bagging the 5 peaks for speed using alternative routes? I feel like there are more direct routes to climb all 5, I'd be curious to give a more direct route a go!
No.. FKT doesn’t know the standard route.. The standard route most ppl do is from North to South. Or other direction South to North. I devised a New route with Mitch Thompson that is less time consuming & easier more efficient. But there is no easy way when U climb all 5 in a day. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.registerguard.com/entertainmentlife/20200111/cafe-541-five-peaks-one-day%3ftemplate=ampart
Note to admin: it seems this should be considered "open course" instead of "standard route"
As long as you start on cascade lakes Hwy or pole creek TH & finish on one or the other it’s an Open Course. Plus tag every top point of those summit peaks or it’s not considered a summit. 🏔🏔🏔🏔🗻
Or if you at least project some part of your body above that summit top point then it’s a True/Legit Summit. Three Sisters Wilderness requires a permit now to summit any of these legally.. So Don’t forget to purchase/Reserve your permit before attempting any of these mountains & be sure to show a picture of the permit so there’s proof U climbed legally otherwise the Fkt won’t count. Register an emergency radio beacon!🚨 Good luck out there, Be Safe & Smart & have fun!
