Ascent Trip Report

Ascended the Sisters ridge from the western end of Round Top lake. Plenty of scree-dancing, but nary a rock rolled. Traversed the ridge line east across Sister's summits to Round Top. Very poor rock on the Sisters. I stayed true to the ridge line avoiding the scree but occasionally came away with the hold still in my hand.... The rock was markedly improved on Round Top. The final 5.4 pitch to the Round Top summit was the best rock of the experience. 2hrs. Perfect day with excellent visibility.
