jdmorehouseDay Hike from Onion Valley  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2015

After days of rain, the temperatures turned warm with a vengeance. I took the south south west ridge right to the base of the peak, then headed somewhat left up some easy class 3 rock. I found an easier way off it coming down. Almost uncomfortably warm at 12,890'. The hike back up to Kearsarge Pass was a big ugh, ugh, ugh. Still better than being down in the valley, where it was nearing 100 degrees. Beautiful views from up there and worth the longish hike.

Ascended south ridge to avoid climbing under cornices. So damn windy on ridge and western side, found refuge in Class 3 chutes and skipping over ridge to climb snow for a bit. A lot more fun than I expected. Descended SE slope by boot glissading down to trail.

The ridge from the SSW is a bit more scrambly, and definitely more solid than the typical slog. The last summit "block" is definitely NOT class 1; as you approach the last summit pinnacle, either cross to the R for a class 2 on very crappy rock, or go around L for either a quick class 3 to the ridge, or class 2+ (a bit farther on), with a backtrack SE up a ramp to the ridge.

That's exactly how I did it, HWS. The ridge was surely far superior than coming up the steep, sandy slopes I know others have taken.

Over from Gould with a full pack, the beginning of an excellent 4 day trip from Kearsarge Pass. Center Basin was my favorite of the trip.
