Route Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: September 25, 2005  Sucess!

A loooonnngg day with Matthew leaving Onion Valley at 2:15am and returning just before 9:30pm. We couldn't find the alleged class 4 route and ended up roping up for one move before the summit and then rapping down it later. The summit block was awesome, I personally like it better than Thunderblot or Starlight even though it isn't quite as impressive in terms of ascending it. Matthew didn't think my dismount/jump down from the summit block as fun as I did.

Excellent climb. Gained new level of respect for Bolton Brown as we made the final move onto summit!

Was finally able on the second try to dayhike this Emblem Peak from Onion Valley. Four of us started out in the wee hours of the morning, not returning until after dark. What you might consider a very full day. Trip Report

Did this solo as a long day hike from Onion Valley. Left early crossed N Dragon Pass and went on to peak. Summited early PM. Returned to OV via Glen and Kearsarge passes. Back to car around 8 pm. Great Day!

Bill Bragg and I climbed the Regular Route on Clarence King in July of 1980. This trip ended in serious epic, with us running the 18 miles over Gardiner Pass to Independence, and return via Ash Mountain Rescue Chopper to pick up climber suffering from HAPE.

Like snwburd said, not that difficult. The '1 move' mtnartman mentioned is not that difficult, but it is very exposed and you can't really see where you are moving to until it is too late.
