Nice Views  Sucess!

Via Woods to Winnemucca on way to 4th of July Lake. Prefer the chute in snow over the rock scramble

West ridge  Sucess!

Climbed from Woods lake via Round Top lake -- looks like the shortest approach. Stopped at the west peak because all the loose gravel was making me nervous.

west ridge  Sucess!

Partially cloudy day. Hiked with Jean who was using snowshoes for approaching. It was my first time to the true summit.

North Face  Sucess!

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!

Sno Park->Summit  Sucess!

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

may/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.

Linked from Elephants Back via East Ridge. Skied down to the car (with some hateful yo-yoing).

CMC  Sucess!

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

Last of the snow  Sucess!

Had snow going up the regular route then it cleared off. Finished off by doing Sisters on the ridge.

Beginner Backpack Trip  Sucess!

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!

Round 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.

West 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!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun mixed climbing to the summit. Steep at parts on the variation.
