dkangasNorth Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 22, 2011
With Josh H. The intent was to do the Crescent Moon couloir, but we found 6 inches of new, sugary snow over a hard crust. After staring up into the tempting couloir for several uncertain moments, we decided we didn't like the avy possibilities. The option of picking our way through mixed climbing up the north face to the left of the couloir seemed safer--and interesting in its own right. There were some fun pitches at about 50 degrees, with a knife-edge ridge to traverse about 100 feet below the summit. Turned out to be a lot of fun!

Not climb to the true summit but the summit before that because of weather and time.

jaredsmay/june ski  Sucess!


great place to ski. about 3:30 from SF. fairly flat up to the base and then easy climb up the north side to the west shoulder. on the way you pass the Crescent Moon Couloir base, while i was there a SP group was climbing it; I saw them glissading down and one lady fell and sliced open her cheek or something, i talked to the group afterward...anyway great place to get out and ski.

Perfect snow conditions in the right fork of the CMC. The final step to the east summit was harder icy rock.

PellucidWombatBeginner Backpack Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2009


I was leading a beginner backpacking trip for CHAOS to the area. Deeper snows than expected dashed our original plans, but the W Ridge route was just clear enough to be a good scramble despite the snow and tennis shoes!

wyopeakMikeRound Top rules  Sucess!


I loved the hike up Round Top from Carson Pass. In the early 90's when I lived in the area, I loved the times I hiked up this peak. The views of the lakes below were sublime. I really have fond memories of the Carson Pass area.

A-LexWest Ridge  Sucess!


This was a ski/climb trip. Climbed up to the shoulder to the west of round top, skirted towards the backside of the mountain, and climbed up to the summit. Easy climbing, great conditions in winter, and way fun!

Hiked the trail? most of the way with Dean. Still lots of snow covering the trail. The scramble to the top was a little challenging.

DebCrescent Moon Couloir (right fork)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2009


Sick with nerves and second guessing an attempt on Crescent Moon Couloir, I still wasn't 100% decided on whether to do the thing while standing at the base of it. After everyone's tales and recommendations making the exit sound horrifying (in MY mind) and not so tasty for a soloist, I half made up my mind to go West Ridge. Somehow, without really thinking any further, I donned crampons and began stomping up the couloir.....37 minutes later I was up the exit and wondering where all this spicey, dicey exit shit was supposed to be. ? Steep, yes, but nothing that made me say "Yikes!" Scrambled to summit; hardest part of the trip was down-climbing that crap in boots but it was fun.
Loved every minute of it except following those stupid blue markers in the woods and getting lost on the way back too.......WAAAY to hot to be goofing around extra miles out there.
Oh yeah, hit up The Sisters too. :)
