Fun climb on the North side! The descend on the East involved a lot of snow an boulder hopping.

With MaiAnh on a warm sunny day. Climbed a short class 3+ section near the summit due to snow. Some minor difficulties routefinding in the dark above Matlock lake on the return.

Attempted to day hike from the parking lot. Snow on the trail starting at Onion Valley. This made things slower going and we turned back about 500' vert from the summit. Didn't want to descend the sketchy, icy slabs below Bench Lake in the dark.

Date Climbed: May 28, 2011


Climbed the north face gully and descended the SE gully in search of better snow. Crux of the day was traversing the complex summit area on loose, snowy class 3 with skis strapped to back in 50mph winds. A beautiful mountain!

Climbed solo via the North Face. There was snow on the ridge which made the traverse "interesting". Fantastic views! One of my favorite climbs.

Miguel Carmona and I skied University Peak from Kearsarge Pass in March of 1982 one day after we skied Mt.Gould from the same area. Both are good AT summits.

MBFNLast minute   Sucess!


Drove to onion valley from San Diego after work, arrived at the trail head at 1:00 am, had a few drinks and started hiking. We camped out at bench lake and climed to the peak from there. Fun scramble and little bit of class 4 and 5 to the top.

Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2009


Headed to Center Peak afterward for a day hike link up. University Peak had a nice slabby summit ridge, dropped my camera on the snow chute on the way up, had to lose and regain some elevation. Cloud cover and light snow fall while we were approaching the real summit made for some interesting scrambling. Amazing views of Center Basin.

Excellent snow conditions in the "short cut" couloir - was grateful we made it both up and down sans an axe & crampons. Beautiful!

The last of 7 summits on a 4-day trip from Onion Valley, University taunted me all weekend as I circled around it. Was happy to make it to University Pass and drop the pack, and even happier for the glisside down. Wouldn't want to do the route to Robinson Lake without snow.

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2010


We ran out of water and time, so we could not summit. We dropped in at 445pm and experienced soupy soft snow conditions, low avy concerns, but we wore beacons. What a experience to ski that...

Had a blast kicking steps up the snow chute but when we reached the ridge the weather turned and we had to descend amid high winds and whiteout conditions.

We intended to climb up and down the North Face route, but got inadvertantly sucked up the North Couloir, which I would not descend. That led to a joyless crossing of the oft-maligned boulder field, which was inconveniently plastered with unconsolidated snow, in the dark. Here is my trip report: Getting Schooled on University Peak.

Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2009


Started at Onion Valley trail-head went up to Robinson Lake. With no map or direction to go by, found route by trial and error.
I must of scaled about 4 false peaks before I got the right peak. Lots of class 4 and 5, with great views and great day. 5:50 hrs. car to car

cabNorth Face Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2009


Fun route with a short trail approach. The rib on the way up was solid, but took the "sand and gravel chute" to the west of the rib on the way down which was easier than descending the rib. Awesome 360 degree views from the top were maybe the best I've seen from any summit. Took 3.5 hours to summit and the same amount of time on the way down due to some routefinding errors. Beautiful weather all day and I didn't see a single person until I got back on the Kearsarge Pass Trail.
