  Broken Top from base of Broken Hand
by mtncorg
 
 

Above the Broken Hand, the 9175 feet high Broken Top looms. There is no sound but the wind up here. If you are climbing Broken Top from this direction, I would think winter or spring to be the best option when the rotten rock is frozen. That would mean a long entry on skis - probably from the direction of Mt Bachelor to the south, for the road to Three Creek Lake is closed in the winter far down from the lake. Plus, the best descent routes are off other ridges - like the southwest.

Directions: Turn south on Elm Street (Signed 'Three Creek Lake') in downtown Sisters and proceed 15.7 miles - 1.7 gravel -turn left at sign for Driftwood Campground and park at large parking lot on right - hike back to turnoff where the trail to the Rim begins
