Augie MedinaAiry Side of Summit Block  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2014

Can't say I enjoyed the scramble up the scree from Kearsarge Pass, but it became more fun when we got to the sparse 3d class section. Getting up the summit block on its exposed side takes some concentration. Only room enough for two butts on the top of the block.

Scouted scrambles to and from Golden Trout Lake and Gould's south, north, and east ridges with my six-year-old daughter a few days before from Onion Valley, returning via Kearsarge Pass with a twenty-something named Alex we met at GTL. Started from Onion Valley just before dawn one morning, headed up to GTL, up the slope west-southwest of GTL to the first false summit area of the normal Kearsarge Pass route, summitted Gould, and traversed toward Dragon. At the radio transmitter I discovered I had forgotten my food (for the first time ever)! Found the radio transmitter building's door to be half broken off with an MRE waiting for me! Continued down Gould Pass to the lakes above Dragon Lake, then down to Dragon Lake and Rae Lakes. Saw my first people of the day on the JMT, then tons more people. Flew up and down Glen Pass and then bonked slightly part way up Kearsarge Pass. Sped up again on the way down to Onion Valley where I enjoyed dinner, shower, and a long drive home from a great first trip to Onion Valley area and the part of SEKI reachable on dayhikes from there.

From Onion Valley to Kearsarge Pass then right up the scree ad talus to the summit. I intended this as an acclimatization hike for the higher hikes that followed. I started at 1:00PM which got me to the summit just in time for the daily thunderstorm! On the summit I couldn't see 10 meters ahead but I could hear the loud thunders. I run down to the trail fearing lightning.

What a blast climbing up from Kearsarge Pass to the summit block. If not for the rain, lightning and thunder probably would have continued along the ridge. Next time.

Date Climbed: May 10, 2014
Day trip from Onion Valley via Kearsarge Pass. Snow on the ground but trail in good shape up to Kearsarge. Took the south ridge. Tropical-storm-force winds blew in from the west. Good snow pack for step kicking. Definitely required an ice axe with the wind and steep angles. Final summit block was a fun class 3 but pretty gnarly with the 50mph wind. Gorgeous day!

Took this as part of the class in conjunction with Dragon Peak. The traverse was surprisingly simple if you find the right way. It was mucky by the time we got there so I have no idea what the views are like.

Great excursion from Kearsarge. Steady climb and then a fun scramble up the summit block. Unfortunately clouds arrived at the summit at the same time.

Beautiful day after a week of monsoon. First time climbing class 2 this steep and long, from Kearsarge pass. Didn't do the class 3 summit block. Great boot skiing after coming down the boulders.

North side of summit pinnacle had snow so I climbed it from the west side. Stout mantle to get on top and I'm 6' 4". Continued on to Rixford.

Found my way up here without knowing what the peak was called. Was pleased to find a register. The summit block itself is a fun little challenge.
