Great summit!  Sucess!

This was a fun outing with a couple great friends, Adam and Z. Very windy and exposed on the summit, but we did manage to find some occasional shelter. Nice scramble to the summit.

Carson Pass to Crater Lake  Sucess!

Skinned up from Carson Pass and skied off the summit ridge down to Crater Lake and the highway. Awesome powder skiing!

Ridge Traverse  Sucess!

Ridge traverse from the Carson Pass PCT trailhead.
Climbed the false summit block first, then went and found the non-exposed route to the true summit.

Continued along the ridge to Stevens, then dipped down and took the TRT/PCT back.

Good Times.  Sucess!

Got a late start. I got stuck behind a wagon train and pioneers in Meyers and got stopped one mile form the trail head due to road maintenance at Carson Pass. We didn't start hiking until 11:30 am. We made it to the top pretty quickly and I did my first ever class 4 climb and I don't think I want to do it again. Shortly after getting to the top we got chased down by thunders storms coming at us from all directions. Good times.

fun!  Sucess!

Quite the enjoyable morning adventure! I'd wanted to do this one for years. Deciding to do something besides go up the lifts & down groomed runs @ Kirkwood, finally did this, from the SnoPark overnight lot. ~2:30 up & exactly 1:00 down. The true summit provided some short, fun, & exposed climbing on what seemed to be relatively solid volcanic stuff. Summit views were phenomenal, weather was great, & I had the whole place to myself (on the way up anyway). Need to get more accustomed to the ungroomed Sierra Cement so I can do more backcountry boarding! I surmise I'll do this one again.

Up the ridge.  Sucess!

Up the snowless ridge to the summit. Climbed the shorter, more southern summit first before I realized my mistake. Lots of skiers hiking up the dry ridge despite the fact that the mountain is virtually bare.

Perfect Day  Sucess!

Perfect day for a climb in snowshoes. Arrived early with unbroken few-day-old snow all the way up. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, Round Top, and the Sierras. Made it down as it clouded up for the afternoon and started getting cold. Can't wait to climb Round Top across 88.

Hazy day  Sucess!

We cut from the PCT after about 1/8th of a mile and headed straight for the ridge. It took just over an hour to get to the summit. The class 3 up to the summit wasn't too bad. The views were pretty nice, but it was a really hazy day. No snow on the ridge. Only small patches left in small pockets. No snow on the summit.
