Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
"Middle Point" is a "soft-rank" summit located on the west side of Clear Lake and south of the infamous South Lookout Peak. The summit can be easily mistaken as being South Lookout, but it is not. To reach this summit, there's a mostly Class 2 route with just a little bit of fun Class 3 work to find a route to the actual summit. It makes a nice addition to your South Lookout Peak day if weather permits. Access is by the Clear Lake Road up South Mineral Creek out of Silverton and a 4WD is required.
