Kearsarge Peak, Winter Ascent

Kearsarge Peak  12,598'

The snow was late in coming one season and for some strange reason  we were the only ones to spend New Year's Eve car camping in Onion Valley. On  New Year's Day we did a few pitches on the south face of Kearsarge Peak
 and with the short days it was soon turnaround time. Despite the overcast,
  taking off my glacier glasses gave me a case of snowblindness later 
that evening.
