We will climb the mountain by the West Face Gully. We will camp Saturday night at 9000 feet, attempt the summit on Sunday and return to our cars before night. The route is not nearly as crowded as the normal route and, although a little more difficult, the solitude and beauty make it worth the extra effort. Participants must have training in self-arrest and feel competent that they can use their skills if needed. Contact: 408-779-2320; gvangorden@gmail.com

This is a moderate intermediate level trip. Backpack from Onion Valley over Kearsarge Pass to Kearsarge Lakes. Climb Bago (11870) and Rixford (12887) from camp on the second day. Some climbing may require ice axes and crampons due to frozen snow. We may use snowshoes to prevent pole-holing late in the day. We may climb Gould (class 3 summit block) if time permits on the way in or out. Gould
has a class 3 summit block.
