BranchWhitneyGreat Day Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2016
Waited a long time to climb this peak (bighorn sheep restriction) BTW, only saw a bighorn once in 40+ trips to the Sierra.
Anyway, this is a great peak: Scenic, fun climbs, and can easily be done as a day-hike.

Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2015


Solo day hike from Onion Valley. I climbed the crest of the ridge once above the chock stone, first summiting a pinnacle nearly the same height as Dragon itself, then traversed over to Dragon. Rain again on the descent, but I made it to the lake at 11,360' first before it came down in earnest.

Day hiked this peak with Jean and Eddie. Terry did not make it and patiently waited for us at elevation 12200 ft.

Eddie may lost a few stoppers on the route, probably around final saddle area. Please contact me if you get them by chance. Thank you in advance!

Quite a climb. That upper slab/crack traverse is amazing.

Did this as part of the class. I choose of course the 'hard' trip out of the 3 offered for the day class. The climb ends with a memorable exposed class 3. Went on to Gould afterward.

Dayhiked from Onion Valley with Tang. Routefinding slowed us down a bit. Airy scramble up high.

I climbed it in July 2008 along with Mt. Gould, and in August 2009 as a destination unto itself. Fun!

Wanted to dayhike East Vidette but the weather was unstable with rain already in the morning. Climbed Gould instead and continued on to Dragon. Tried Kearsarge Peak as well but got turned back below Lilley Pass by thunder and strong rain.

Led a Sierra Club group up from the lake to the east and across to Gould. Cold and windy but I loved the last bit before the summit.

Great climb on a beautiful day. Much more snow in the Sierra than I expected. That summit block is great fun.

CAB and I took a few different routes to the top which made for some interesting climbing. Was a ton of fun and different from most of the other climbs I have done. A little out of shape on this one so cross to Gould took much longer then it should have.

Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2009


Climbed from Onion Valley with cdewhurst. Relatively easy, solid, low-angle climb from the unnamed lakes up to the ridge. The ridge traverse over to the summit was a lot of fun. Missed the ledge near the summit on the way up and ended up climbing a little bit to the left of where it was. Awesome views from the top! Weather was pretty cold (low-mid 40's) but great for climbing. Went across the ridge to Mt. Gould afterwards.

Fun, relatively easy day with fun class 3. Continued on to Gould. It was nice to be able to sleep in a little after the long Deerhorn hike the previous day.
