Ascent Trip ReportArrived at Carson Pass Trailhead at around 11:30 pm and began hike to Winnumucca Lake by moonlight. Set up camp at 9022ft on Northwest shore, a place I have used previously. The next morning we left camp for an audacious route up steep snow slopes to just below summit...the last steepest and exposed 60-70 ft remained unclimbed. Down climbed and traversed the rock band to climbers right to have a look at the Crescent Moon, then continued to the col that spits Round Top and the Sisters East. Scrambled class 2/3 to summit, took some photos and then headed over to summit of Sisters East Peak. Best day in the mountains to date with good friend and climbing partner Will Cox!
