Fun, easy climb from Kings Peak.
#1 8-29-06 It took my son and I about 50 minutes to go from the summit of Kings to that of South Kings. Lots of the rock slabs you encounter coming off the summit of Kings are unstable, so be careful. Contouring around two of the intermediate bumps is fun boulder hopping. One more bump and then you tackle the real summit ridge. Very flat at the top; we couldn't locate a summit register even though many talk about one being there. However, there was a very cool cairn someone had spent some time constructing. #2 8-15-13 w/ Brent. 2nd peak of the Northern 4(5) on a perfect weather day. #3 7-25-16 With Signe. 2nd summit of the Kings-Emmons ridge run.
August 1995. Much less visited than Kings. Appears higher from some directions. I've also visited Anderson Pass from several directions.
Had good weather the day hiking in (70's). The warm weather the day before made the snow soft up through Anderson Chute. Post holed to my crotch, not a lot of fun. Made Kings and hiked to South Kings. Got hit with a white out from South Kings back to Anderson Pass. From there it was rain back to camp.
