Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2004
Woke up late to join group to Dragon Peak ('04 Sierra Challenge). Instead, went to Kearsarge Pass and up to Gould to meet the group there. Descended with 2 others, while some went on to Rixford.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2006


Nice hike w/ CP and enjoyed the view for a nice rest on the summit block. Soloed down chute directly N. of Gould and had to chimney down steep avy chute against a 800' chunk of ice and packed snow that dumped into a scree field. Was stoked to find an exit after descending deep into slot and left a :) in the snow for following wanderers. Lakes below were spectacular with sparse use trails till further down.

After a night at the Onion Valley campground, we hiked up to Gould via the South ridge from Kearsarge Pass. There's a fun little summit block at the top to make the slog up from the pass worthwhile. Great views and great weather.

Cool down hike after Russell. Easy r/t from Onion Valley but the views are worth it.

Climbed with ming21. Traversed on ridge over to Gould from Dragon Peak (about an hour traverse). Summited Gould around 1:00pm. Back at Onion Valley trailhead at 3:01pm.

Date Climbed: 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!

kngalaricWonderful day in the Eastern Sierra  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


Bruno, Chrissy, Tom and I went for a loooooooong drive to Independence, started the trail at 9:30 and finished near 7 PM. Pretty easy. Kearsarge is an easy pass. Gould is very easily attainable. The final summit block is the only exposed section on the whole trip. Fun, fun, fun. Great day except for the smog form the High Desert (lame - tell those people to move) and the smoke form King's Canyon controlled burns.

Slushy snowshoe slog to tiring talus tromp. This hike has beautiful views, but it made me realize I need to whip my buns into better shape soon.

thedusPleasant Day Hike up South Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Climbed up the south slope from Pothole Lake to the South Ridge. We used snowshoes for quite a bit of the way at the lower elevations, but the peak itself was fine. Gorgeous day, though would have been just a hair nicer without the haze in the distance.

Climbed after the crappy Keararge Pinnacles with Heinrich and my little bro Curt. Was a slog with a cool summit pinnacle.

Deb and I climbed up to Gould on our way to Dragon Peak. She had soloed this peak a week prior under windy conditions. Still a bit windy this day as well. Scrambled up the east side of the summit (4th class moves). The short gully to the east, just below the summit, looked in condition. Saw that Joe Dawson (assuming that's the same SP'er joesephdawson) made an entry in September.

Attempted to climb Gould driectly from Kearsarge pass trail. Slogged up talus until ridge was gained. Ended up on rock overhang, should have taken the easy way (Class 1-2 talus slope). Another lesson learned in a beautiful classroom.

Great snowclimb and dayhike. Low hanging, misty clouds made for a great atmosphere and for fun mixed climbing on the summit blocks.

This capped off a nice 4 day backpacking trip. Just a walk in the park until the class 3 summit rocks. That was a little unnerving for a mere hiker like myself.

This is one of the easiest peaks I climbed in the Sierras. So, strangely enough, it is also the one that took the most number of attempts to get to the top! Scared off by weather one time and altitude sickness in our party the second time. But the third time was a charm .. fun climb, even though it's a slog. This is a great conditioner climb.
