I gotta be back for Mothers Day also. North Bay carpool would be great if it works for everyone. How does 9-930 at the trailhead sound. I also have alot of extra gear if anyone needs anything.

I thought I had scheduled myself NOT to be on the weekend work schedule. But I'm working Saturday, I've asked some of the employees to take the shift but they've made plans. So you guys will have to razz me about the crampons and the noobs climbing skills another time. Thanks Gomez, Squishy, DynamoKiev and Scott for your offering of advice, gear, etc.

Planning to be there for CMC. How do we identify the SP group? I have not climbed with you guys, so need to have some help identifying who is who on TH. Any updates on the snowpack conditions?

See y'all tomorrow. By the way, you still need a Sno-park pass -- they go all the way until May 30th. Just had to check that myself!

great! wait where's the meeting spot?


http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock/150503/round-top.html


To get to one trailhead from the Tahoe Area Travel south on CA State Route 89 (starting at its junction with U.S Highway 50) for approximately 11.5 to its junction with CA State Route 88 in Hope Valley. Turn right (west) onto S.R. 88 and drive for approximately 9 miles to the summit of Carson Pass. The parking area will be on the south side of the road with a small information building at the east end. The information hut is only manned during the summer months.
From the west the trail head / parking area is approximaetly 70 miles east of Jackson, CA on State Route 88.
The closer but lower one is at Woods Lake, elevation 8200 ft. Take highway 88 a few miles west of Carson Pass, then take the Woods Lake turn off on the south side. Proceed 2 miles to trailhead. From Jackson it is a couple of miles before you reach the summit.


where do i meet everyone? fyi I am coming from SF and have ski racks and space in my car if someone wants to carpool w/me[/url]

Two parking violations, an pretty bad injury and I even had a spark plug unscrew itself and pop out on the way home...how does that even happen? Regardless, we all made it up the colouir, some on the right side some on the left. Thanks everyone for a fun day, and I hope everything works out for dragger she is a super trooper...


How about the SC, did you guys see them? etc?
