metasyn11West ridge from Sisters  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007

metasyn11

From Round Top Lake, I climbed to the saddle between the Sisters, bagged them both, then traversed east all the way to the east summit of Round Top. Only 10 or 15 feet of class 3 near the summit, other than that it was fairly easy class 2/use trail.

Upon cresting the saddle between Round and The Sisters I was met with 30-40 mph winds. Once on top the wind was so fierce it almost knocked me down a few times. Could see Mt. Diablo from the summit.

I got up to the trailhead late after finishing up some work in SLT. The snow was real soft on the way to Winnemucca Lake and I saw someone just starting up the couloir. By the time I put on crampons at the base I thought he must be on top. Once I entered the couloir it was soft snow but easy climbing because the steps were kicked in. After going up to section where the right fork splits off I heard a noise from above and saw a piece of ice come zipping down. There was a steady rain of small snow and ice chuncks bouncing down the chute for a while but then it finally stopped. When I got to the top there was a guy putting his crampons away and was getting ready to ski the west ridge. It was a great day out and there was a little more snow than I expected.

This definitely is one of my favorites.

The view from the summit was awesome; the hike was absolutely beautiful and pleasant. Wildflowers were abundant during this time of the year. Colors were everywhere with white clouds and crisp blue sky. It felt like a fairyland... kind of surreal.

I especially loved the last part because of the scrambling! (Always get especially excited when it's more a scrambling than hiking.) Felt a little bit dumb-headed for a few seconds after reaching the summit 'cuz I "almost" couldn't open the summit registry.


I will certainly be back - either in the summer or winter, ANYTIME! =D

A beautiful hike from the pass! Lots of wildflowers in the summer. Would be even more fun in the winter.

Easy fun little walk-up with some great views and a great experience of being caught in a small blizzard in October. Next time I'll try the Crescent Moon.

Fun hike to the top, my second time. A bit of a scramble to the actual summit, just enough to keep me focused.

This climb certainly had its fun spots, but some of the awful scree we encountered and loose holds we found in some of the most exposed places make it difficult for me to recommend. We never encountered anything harder than class 3.

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

(June 2008) Traversed the ridgeline west of Round Top Lake to the Sisters and then on to Round Top

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.
