UNIVERSITY PEAK?? Aug 11-12 (1956) Leader: Chuck Miller
On Sat. 16 people left Onion Valley at 8 am for the 5-mile hike into the Kearsarge Lakes. The afternoon was spent swimming and loafing, and a few people did some climbing on a ridge behind camp. A decision was also reached that afternoon. We decided that instead of making the cruddy class 1 climb of University (Peak), we would wait until some other time to climb it by the 3rd class route and instead would climb Mt. Gould and Dragon Pk.
So Sun. morning at 7 am we hiked to Kearsarge Pass and left our packs to first climb Mt. Gould. It was a beautiful day and the view was grand. However, while on Mt. Gould half the group decided that they preferred a leisurely weekend and only 7 went on to climb Dragon Pk. The last were down at the cars at 5:30 pm.
Note: As can be seen by the confusing title, part of this trip did not go as scheduled.
