Went back to Gould almost exactly 5 years later. Not much effect from the altitude this time; interesting how the body adapts over the years. Anyway, hiked from Kearsarge Pass. Still some decent snow to the pass and clear to the summit (two small snow fields that can be avoided). A little warm on the way up but otherwise a great hike! Didn't see anyone beyond the pass.


First summit - Aug 12, 2006.
Climbed with Allen (see below) as a dayhike from Huntington Beach. Woke up at 3:30am and got back home around 1am. A long but fun day! I tend to get affected by altitude fairly easily and wondered if I would be able to make it from sea-level to 13k feet in a day. I noticed the altitude right at the trailhead. I tried to keep up the pressure breathing and only got a severe headache right near the summit.
Well acclimatized, it definitely would've been easier but it was nonetheless very enjoyable. Awesome scenery and views!

Climbed up from Kearsarge Pass during a light snow storm. Snow & ice made the summit blocks spicy!

Beautiful area, but the peak itself was not much more impressive than the pass.

The scree on the Golden Trout Lake side was horrible and made for a very tough climb. But the short class 3 sections at the summit are worth the effort.

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.

Fun finish on an otherwise uninspiring peak. Not even the slightest breeze on the summit, with lots of smoke filling the valleys to the West.

Nice little summit boulder. I felt it was necessary to climb up and stand on it. So I did.

Great socializing opportunities at Kearsarge Pass on the way up added a good hour of bullshitting to my trip.

Coming from Dragon-cool summit blocks for an otherwise not very exciting peak.

This was one of the best ski descents I can remember. Perfect corn conditions from top to bottom.

Up the same way as about everyone else, but with a full pack as I was heading to Rixford next and then down for 5 others over a 4 day trip. Nice route overall.

Easy walk up from the Pass with a little scramble at the end. Great view into the Rae Lakes from the north side of the little rock plain just north of the peak.

Since this was a solo summit the high wind that day kept me off the last 7 feet of the summit block.

Couple hours hike from Mt. Rixford. I agree with the guy below about the summit block.
