Ascent Trip Report

Extra gain was from day 1 going from Onion Valley - Kearsarge Pass - Bubbs Creek - Upper Vidette Lakes.

GPX track starts on north ridge when Matt and Jen turned back and I turned my GPS on since Matt was leaving with his. Long day. Started at 6am, back to camp at 10:20pm.

The north ridge ascent followed by south ridge traverse to Gregory's Monument is a true Sierra classic. Highly recommended.
