DescriptionThis appropriately named peak is the next major one north along the ridge from Mount Gould, has a completely different character, being sharp, jagged and black.
The south eastern side is home to a classic Class 3 route.
Getting ThereGolden Trout Lakes/Dragon Pass: From the Onion Valley Parking Loop there's a trail which runs north, up into the Golden Trout Lakes, and Dragon Peak basins, from the loop there's a big waterfall, the trail starts on the Kearsarge Pass trail, then splits right and heads up old scree and passes this on the right, then crosses it's top and follows more steep terrain until a depression is reached, here the trail crosses the creek and back again for a short distance to avoid big boulders, after this it slightly uphill until a meadow is reached, Golden Trout Lakes is to the left and Dragon Pass is to the right. This meadow is very scenic, with large towers to the north, there is camping at the two lakes beneath Dragon Peak, these lakes are reached from the meadow by crossing a small creek and heading towards the trees on the other side, make sure you stay left of these trees to hit the trail.
