Route Climbed: South Ridge off of Kearsage Pass Date Climbed: 8/24/05  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: 05/25/02  Sucess!

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.

Second stop on a Dragon-Gould-Rixford dayhike with Bob and Michael. Summit block was a short but interesting scramble.

Day 8 of the 2004 Sierra Challenge, twelve of us started out from Onion Valley, eight made it to the summit of Dragon, ten to the summit of Gould, and three to the summit of Rixford. Safe to say, we pretty much covered the area that day. Trip Report

Easy climb to the top. We avoided the annoying class 1 slog by climbing the class 2 talus along the ridge. Made things a little more interesting by climbing some of the larger blocks just for fun. To reach the summit you can either climb the easy class 3 along the ridge or the easy class 4 on the west face. We chose the east face because of some potentially unstable rock on the ridge.

Side trip on our way out from Charlotte lake. 40 min. to summit from the pass. The summit blocks are short but fun to climb on.

Did this as a dayhike. Considerable snow about a mile up from Onion Vly TH but firm and fun. Didn't need the axe and crampons until 200m from the summit. Car to car in 5.5hr. Nice, easy acclimation dayhike.

Day hike from Onion Valley campground with Chuck. Spent a total of an hour and a half on Kearsarge pass chatting with a good looking ranger and other hikers. This was to be the first in a series of strange meetings with Lars and Tats. Good times.

Route Climbed: From Golden Trout Lake Date Climbed: July 7, 2001  Sucess!

Summited with poor weather and very low visibility. Without a map I got lost, and thought I might actually be on Dragon Peak. Afterwards I tried to go climb Dragon Peak but got lost again. Decided to quit with two strikes and headed down before the thunderstorms broke in earnest. Trip Report
