Kearsarge Peak


By: Jim Adler, Randy Danta

We set out from Onion Valley at about 7:00 am and took the trail towards Golden Trout Lake. At the fork we went towards the two unnamed lakes north of Golden Trout Lake. Just before we got to the lakes we left the trail and headed up a conspicuous wide chute to the northeast. About the only good thing that can be said about this loose scree filled chute is that it is not as bad as it looked from Goould on Satuday. After reaching the top of the chute, it was a pleasant climb across easy talus slopes to the summit. which we reached about noon. All twelve of the party made the summit. We returned via the same route and the vanguard reached the parking lot by about 3:30.

The route we took, in light of the above mentioned chute, may not be the route of choice but it was almost certainly more interesting and scenic.

It was a geat goup and special thanks are due to Randy who came to assist on Sunday even though he was detained by work and could not make it to Kathy's Mt. Gould trip on Saturday. Participants were: Keith Martin, Paula Peterson, Kathy Rice, Peter Kinman, Tom Sakowych. Emma Burd. Alice Bannister, David Michels, Hoda Shalaby, Nancy Bell, and leaders.
