Quick detour off of the PCT followed by a traverse over to Peak 9842 at the edge of the east ridge of Round Top.
Pics and commentary here.
Snowshoe from Carson Pass with Ashley! Kirkwood Inn after. A glorious day.
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 !
I hiked up Elephant's Back a couple of times on the way up to Round Top.
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.
(April 2009) A short but pleasant climb from Carson Pass.
(May 2010) Black Butte, The Sisters, Round Top, and Elephants Back from Carson Pass
Went south to Highland Peak next day and Tioga Pass after that
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.
Climbed this on the way down from the Sisters.
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.
Tagged on my way to Round Top. Pretty much snow free the last several hundred feet.
Joel and I snowshoed in until we ran out of snow near the summit. A fun start to the year.
This makes a fine winter or spring climb as well. Matthew and I hit this one last on a tour from Kirkwood to Carson Pass along the ridge. Trip Report
Climbed it a buncha times.
Very windy night at Winnemucca Lake. Woke early and hiked to the top of Elephants Back on our way out. It rounded out the weekend nicely - we hiked Round Top and The Sisters the day before.
