Date Climbed: May 20, 2006
Climbed with my friend Andrew. A lot of snow required snowshoeing, then a rock scramble at the top.

Climbed the steep east ridge with my dad. Weather was great, and the view was even better.

Date Climbed: May 17, 2006


Climbed the Crescent Moon Couloir in soft conditions. The crux was the downclimb off the summit to the northwest on approximately five hundred feet of extremely rotton rock.

Great view from the top.

Climbed the West Ridge with my buddy Dave. This was a good warmup in soft snow; we were glad we brought our snow shoes.

Climbed with my buddy Brian; expected winter conditions and got it (snow); temp was in the high 70s. Impressive views down the ridge from the summit.

I was wondering if any of the people my wife and I saw up on the mountains were SPers. We only hiked to just shy of Winnemucca Lake. It was a bit tiring for her since she doesn't hike much. We didn't use the snow shoes.

Vertigo soul

A nice "Cinco de Mayo" morning climb & ski! Left the parking lot at Carson Pass about 7:30 a.m., and skinned up to the base of the couloir in about an hour. Strapped on the crampons and axes, lashed the skis to the pack and headed up. The snow was good frozen nieve for most of the climb until the last 25 ft, which had softened and made it a little tricky exiting the couloir. An incredibly sunny windless day, and I was lucky to enjoy the summit all to my self. Great climb and ski down, definitely worth doing again and again!

Date Climbed: May 6, 2006


I left the trailhead a little before 8 am and topped out of the couloir a little after 10. Snow instability was a bit of concern and horizontal fracture lines in the couloir itself kept me going pretty fast. Snow condition decent but not yet perfect. Weather was nice although the views from the east summit were a little cloudy. Descended west ridge and glissaded down the lower slopes. Used snowshoes on the return but could have done without. This was the first climb I've done since I broke my ankle in Feb. An awesome day.

Powder snow was a major pain with snow shoes. Interesting ice formation on summit ridge. The notch between the summits was insanely windy, not too bad on the rest of the ridge.

Date Climbed: Mar 26, 2006


This trip was for Denali preparation. Pulled 70+ pound sleds up to ~9200', just north of the saddle. Weather changed over night and we got to spend a day digging out the tents every hour and battling 2+ feet of snow with 30-80 mph winds. Woke the next day to a sunny sky accompanied by a successful summit filled with the boom of the Kirkwood avalanche cannon!

I climbed this one a few times when I was a kid, with my grandparents. We always had perfect solitude back then.

Great hike with awesome views up top. A bit of a butt-kicker in terms of endurance but a great workout. Bouldering required up top, a bit dicey.

I climbed this solo the first time, then with my husband the second time. As usual, lots 'o loose rock but a fabulous view from the summit!

Skied from Carson Pass to the saddle below the west ridge. Climbed the ridge and traversed over to the east summit. A truly alpine experience with all the fresh snow, high wind and icy temperature.

Nice hike up the west ridge to the western summit. Slight haze in the air. Great views of Summit City Canyon and areas south.

Light from setting sun on Round Top was awesome on the descent. Hiking/running on section of trail between Carson Pass and Winnemucca Lake in the setting sun is always a glorious experience.

Total time to hike from Carson Pass to top and back: 2 hrs 50 min. Great way to start the weekend.

Some snow but firm in the morning. Reached the top around noon and spent an hour taking in the sights. On the downclimb, boot skied about 800 vertical feet down the large patches of snow. I'm going to bring my son and daughter next time.

Jim ("the Schillermon") Schiller left this world a sadder place on December 3, 2004. Eight of us were present to share our memories and scatter his ashes in a place he loved. We'll miss you brother, your spirit and music live on.

Recovery climb - ankle works ok, although hurts somewhat. Climbing steep snow was easier than scrambling on the rock on the ridge...
