Ascent Trip Report

Dragon (from Onion Valley)
The approach hike was very pretty. I saw evidence of bighorn sheep. The climb was fun but maybe underwhelming. I stayed below the ridge and there were only maybe two class 3 moves. Crossing a crack below the summit, I realized that my fear of heights is a lot less than it once was. Good reminder to stay careful.

This crack beneath the summit has very good handholds and foot placements. (2019-10-06). Photo by Ben R.
