Fun East ridge from El Citadel. East ridge is longer and better than west. Crips are better than Bloods.
Over Golden Bear and then on to Hagar.
made it to the saddle.
harder traverse from citadel than i imagined. i really liked the snow and icy spots in the third-class chimneys.
The wife, pup and I with "Golden Bear".
Climbed the Citadel's NE face first then contoured over to Hagar. Due to having inappropriate footwear (more snow than I was expecting), feet froze!!! Should have used Dry Gulch. At least snow was spotty on the traverse. Citadel looks like a bumb from Hagar! Great little summit though.

First time: 6/1/08 from Dry Gulch via Trelease and Golden Bear, still quite snowy.
Second time: 11/25/12 from Dry Gulch up south face and then traversed the ridge to Citadel, fun scrambling with fairly straight forward route finding.
Third time: 5/3/14 from Dry Gulch up SW ridge than ski of south face, combo with Citadel.
Fourth Time: 11/12/16 from Dry Gulch with Rachael. Traversed over from Citadel.
Mt. Hagar is nice peak, this peak is overlooked and shadowed by Mt. Citadel, i had great day soloing this peak from Dry Gulch.
