Really fun hike, from Carson Pass went up to Round Top, then retraced back to the saddle and went up to both of The Sisters, then traversed some fun class 2/3 and some steep scree slopes to the saddle at Fourth of July Peak. Fourth of July was a bit of a slog up a decent use trail, after the excitement of the other peaks it didn't quite measure up. Took the trail all the way back to Carson Pass from Fourth of July. TR is HERE.
Skied from Carson Pass. Low peak for the area, but great views. Good alternative to Round Top - no crowds.
From Woods Lake. Part of a ridge traverse that ended with Covered Wagon.
4th of July was pretty unremarkable other than the phenomenal view of the backside of Sisters/Roundtop.
Pics and commentary are here.
