Up the old mining road from Onion Valley and skied out Sardine. Getting a bit bare down Sardine, but awesome corn and dancing Ravens.

Had an extra Sunday after finishing another trip early. Nice half/day hike- enjoyed the scree slide down more than the way up though. Superb views.

MelbaToastFrom Onion Valley to Road's End in King's Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2006


Rob and I started at Onion Valley Trailhead at 6:30 on Saturday morning, hiked up over Kearsarge Pass, down past the Kearsarge Lakes and took the John Muir Trail past Vidette Meadow and along Bubb's Creek to Junction Meadow. Our friend Craig started at Road's End and hiked up toward Onion Valley. We met just above Junction Meadow and chatted for a while. We were thinking of doing Mt. Brewer together but decided we wanted more than a one-night trip for that. Rob and I camped at Junction Meadow and hiked out the last 10 miles on Sunday. A gorgeous, two-day backpacking trip. It was a bit windy and cold below Kearsarge Pass but nice everywhere else. My first time at King's Canyon. I'm looking forward to going back!

ridgeard3230Route Climbed: the chute to the right of Lilly pass Date Climbed: Aug. 28,2005  Sucess!
We stayed along the wall which made it much easier to climb. Once on the ridge the going was very nice to the peak.

On the descent I'll try the Lilly Pass next time.

Fun climb .. well, I wasn't thinking it was fun at the time, while going up the scree and loose rock in Lilley Chute ... but looking back ... yeah, it was cool! Great views of the valley! I would have to imagine this route is more fun than the old mining trails on the other side of the peak.

I was pretty beat from a longer-than-expected outing to Sill the day before, and settled on Kearsarge as a rest day (half-day, really) before a more ambitious hike on the holiday Monday.

The sand slog up Lilley Pass was tedious in the lower portions, but I found a reasonably solid rib part way up that made the climb more tolerable. (The pass is a blast to descend!) This peak was a minor milestone for me: my 50th SPS peak for the year.

Charlie sloan and I tried this peak twice the first time was early may 2002 we got within a 20 min. scramble but we turned back because of nasty weather. The second attempt was a score! We scrambled up a steep chute to the right of lily pass. Awesome views!!
