On the tiny summit of Black Rock Sister

On our ascent of North Sister, DB and I had spied a curious black formation on the ridge east of our objective. Eventually reaching the day's primary peak, we saw two entries in the register regarding this small, black peak, which folks were referring to as Black Rock Sister. We headed over to check it out.

Reaching the base of the formation, we were delighted to see that some scrambling could be had! Before long, we stood atop the small, exposed and loose summit.
