November 2004  Sucess!

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 !

From Carson Pass  Sucess!

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.

Carson Pass  Sucess!

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.

Descent from Round Top  Sucess!

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.

Great Views of Carson Pass Area  Sucess!

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.
