It was July of 1995. We hiked in over Kearsarge Pass to Vidette Meadows. The mosquitos were far worse than anything I later experienced in the Alaskan interior during my honeymoon. It was a struggle to breathe! The next day we hiked to East Lake. The crossing of Bubbs Creek was quite dangerous--water to crotch level. I set out the following day by myself up the East Ridge. I took Secor's description a bit too literally and followed Ouzel Creek for way too long. The route I took was class three in many places, which was fine but it slowed me down. After the heavy winter, there was still too much snow to follow the correct route. I made it up to the last steep section before the summit ridge and had to turn around. If I hadn't turned around my partner would have started trying to find me in the dark. It was so frustrating! A bear tried to break into our tent at Kearsarge Lakes on the way out.

It was a very stressful trip which my partner didn't really want to be on.

I really want to go back to this area though!

A long time ago...climbed with Mark Danner from East Lake. Must have been a great view (I just don't remember - I'll have to dust-off the slides....)

North Guard/Brewer dayhike out of Cedar Grove. Spent thirty minutes perched amongst the boulders on the NW slopes while it thundered around me; with an apparent break in the weather, I headed up to the summit to then see lightning striking South Guard. Needless to say, I didn't stop to sign the register or take many photos, but instead scurried down the East Ridge to Ouzel Creek as fast as I could...

This was a fun one! I climbed the class 2 south slope from a small tarn at 12,000 ft. on day 3 of a six day Brewer area backpacking trip. Because of a route finding-screw-up (that’s another story), I spent my fourth night on the ridge above Ouzel Creek on the east side of the mountain. On the bright side, I awoke during the early dawn hours the next morning to a spectacular sunrise, the best I’ve ever seen! From my sleeping bag, I saw the very early morning orange light above the Sierra Crest stretching from Mt. Darwin south to the Whitney region.

Bob BurdRoute Climbed: Ascent via East Ridge, descent via Northwest Slopes Date Climbed: July 30, 2002  Sucess!

A long dayhike, 15.5hrs CTC from Road's end. Started at 4a, after sleeping in the permit office at the trailhead (I thought that was pretty ironic). Made the summit at 1p. I spent about half an hour trying to exit the East Ridge via a more elegant class 4-5 route, but had to downclimb the mess I got into and exit the normal way onto the South Slope.

Did the entire 30mi in tennis shoes, which was a great deal more enjoyable than hiking boots. Trip Report.

This was a long day climbing South Guard, Mt. Brewer, then North Guard, starting from Thunder Pass. By far, North Guard was the most fun, even though I was dead tired by then!
