Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2009


Long day. Left my house at 3 am drove to Onion Valley and started hiking by 7:30. Tons of talus and boulder hopping above the unnamed lakes up to the South Chute. Climbed up the chute and wasn't comfortable so came down the chute. Then weaved my way up the class 2/3 rock to the South Ridge then up from there. Spicy moves near the summit. Rained a bit on then way down, just enough to get things wet.

South Ridge with Harish and Kimberly. An early afternoon thunderstorm chased us from the summit. Instead of downclimbing the now wet and lightening-exposed ridge we descended into a chute which basically cliffed out beneath a chimney. We climbed back up a bit and descended the next gulley over.

A fun scramble with great views. The snow saved much scree slogging.

My good buddy Demetri and I climbed this in springtime with the bulk of the approach being on snow. Lots of fun. The traverse on the ledge is pretty cool.

Climbed with bighornmonkey, Fins129 and Mal to the summit. I was so proud of Fins and Mal...it was their first time doing this Sierra scrambling stuff and it was great to see the excitement on their faces!

Backpacked to one of the Golden Trout Lakes and spent the night there (11,200'). Summited the next day with 3 other friends...An altitude record for Mal, and a first class 3 for Dan.

Not sure if I was on the S or SE chute route, but there was sand, scrambling, and fun. Enjoyed the part near the top a great deal :)

Beautiful day, traversed to Gould. Dayhiked from Onion Valley.

I had been really fortunate with my navigation skills for some time until this weekend. Got fixated on the peak just north of Dragon, and ended up climbing the wrong chute. Not a big deal, but the whole weekend had been marked by early afternoon thunderstorms, and by the time I realized my mistake it was too late, and the party agreed that we didn't want to be caught up on the ridge, exposed, in foul weather. HUGE learning experience.

Climbed with Matthew and Craig (Craig's first class 3 peak). Lots of fun scrambling makes the slog from the lakes worth it. Fun glissade down, though, in perfect snow!

Great 3rd class from the crest to the summit. Summit is not in view for most of the route which resulted in a couple pinnacles being climbed. The 20 foot traverse just below the summit looks more difficult than it is. I may have been the last summit for the season.

Very cool 3rd class at the top made the rest of the trudge worthwhile.

It was a great climb with BlueSkyGirl. Long and plodding to start, but the higher the route climbed, the better it got.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2006


Traversed over from Mt. Gould. Unsure of the exact route, I dropped all the way down to the lake west of the crest, then scrambled up the SW slope. Nice scrambling and exposed ledge just below the top. From there, I dropped down and followed the south ridge back to Mt. Gould, then hiked out from Kearsarge Pass.
