trexkerryWith Round Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013
Mistakenly stayed on the PCT and realized it on the back side of Elephants Back. Climbed loose scree and rocks up to Elephants Back summit and traveled cross country to hook up with the right trail at Round Top Lake. Enjoyed the class 3 climb at the end.

Just got back from elephants back. The snow made things fairly difficult at first because there was no obvious trail. so i started from carson snow park near red lake it was about a mile of zig zagging in fresh powder through trees until i was able to see elephants back. from there it was an easy hike to the top. Overall a great day trip

Snowshoed with JN around Elephants Back. Wanted to summit Round Top but snow wasn't good or consolidated enough. May come back to Carson Pass and do The Sisters with skis. Winnemucca Lake is lovely surrounded by snow.

First summitpost group outing for me -- met Misha, Diggler, keema, mrolph, mountainvoodoo and Dragger. We bagged this thing as a consolation prize after turning back from Round Top's east ridge (which in retrospect was not such a bad thing :)

High winds and deteriorating weather. Fun !

Climbed this with my 2 yr 10 month old son. He had a blast and hiked all the way to Winnemucca Lake by himself. Nice views from the summit of Red Lake Peak and the many local lakes.

Nice and easy climb from Carson Pass. Hiked this one with Devin (4.5 yrs old). The kid is really turning into quite the trooper. Cool and windy day but the views were great.

Tagged with Hakan (sierrawolf), south slope up, north slope down. The "weird fissure" on the summit ridge was filled with snow. Views of Round Top wrapped in snow is awesome.
