Mts. Bago and Rixford

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.

Mountaineering experience with ice axe and crampons, recent travel at altitude, excellent physical condition, and snow camping experience are all required. Equipment required: boot crampons, ice axe, helmet, snow camping gear.

This trip requires Sierra Club membership, filling out a medical form, and signing a liability waiver.
