(June 2008) Left from Woods Lake TH. Gained the west ridge from Round Top Lake. Stayed very near to the ridgeline the entire way. Many fun class 3 spots. Climbed Round Top afterwards.
(May 2010) Black Butte, The Sisters, Round Top, and Elephants Back from Carson Pass.
Tagged them from the Round Top saddle after Fourth of July Peak. Went up Round Top after. A nice day. Some snow patches, but no ice.
Quick hike up the East Ridge after summiting Round Top. Couldn't quite convince myself to tag both summits, but enjoyed the view.
Great wildflowers displays on the trail from Carson Pass. Once I hit the saddle between Sisters and Round Top, I headup up the West and down and up the east Sister. Nice views from both.
Climbed up the saddle between the sisters from Round Top Lake. Bagged the west one, then traversed eastward over the east Sister then Round Top. Fantastic hike if you can handle the weekend afternoon crowds on the descent.
Tagged both Sisters from Round Top Lake. Hiked the west trail from Woods Lake, then climbed to the saddle between the Sisters, up the West Sister, traverse to the East Sister, finished the loop on the east trail of Woods Lake. This finished a great Friday that include a summit of Hawkins Peak.
Hiked up the east summit after Round Top.
That long traverse with Matthew (described below) was really great fun. The Thimble was the most thrilling of the summit blocks, harder than Round Top even. Trip Report
Bagged the east summit after doing Round Top. Easy tag once you are at the saddle.
