Onion Valley's Mount Gould

Stunning views along the trail to Kearsarge Pass

Setting out one day from the Kearsarge Pass Trailhead in Onion Valley, I headed up the beautiful trail for Mount Gould. Mount Gould, commonly regarded as one of the easiest high peaks in the Sierra Nevada, was said to offer stunning views and a quality scramble up the final summit block.
The summit crags

Reaching Kearsarge Pass, I left the trail and headed up the mellow terrain toward the top. Eventually, the sand and scree of the route gave way to the final summit crags. The highest block presented itself. A short scramble followed.

I signed the register and headed off to Dragon Peak.
