DebWind Blown!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 18, 2014


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.

MoapaPkfrom ridge to SSW  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


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.

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.
