meliasBoundary via Queens Mine  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2012
Went up solo and camped out at Queen Mine. Road to mine is fine for any car -- took 40 minutes from highway on way up and 30 on way down. No cell signal at trailhead. Hike was straightforward climb with well marked trail. No snow left. Just shy of the summit, met two hikers from East Coast who had approached from Trail Canyon -- Kent (38th highpoint) and Corey -- nice to chat with after being alone for while. We were the only three people on the mountain that day. Made the mistake of going too far below the ridge on the final climb which was a lot more scree/sand than the firmer rock-hopping by staying on the ridge... which caused me to scrap my plans for Montgomery. Wild horses were incredible but caused a little nervousness on hike down when the primary stallion stayed planted on the trail just past the saddle and stared me down for five minutes. He finally moved and when I walked past I could see his foal resting under the nearby tree. Perhaps 10 wild horses in all.

Not much snow left, just a little near the summit. Still cold and windy on the ridge line. We were able to drive all the way up to the saddle next to the Queens Mine Trailhead.

Collected the Nevada state highpoint on Independence Day. Tough climb, sometimes over loose scree, but the views of the Sierras from the summit offset all the hardship. It was a perfect summer day. And we saw the wild horses too.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2012


Could not make it to the mine. Had to hike about a 1.5 miles farther. Ankle to knee high snow on the lower mountain with drifts and bare rock/scree on the upper mountain. Kicked a lot of steps. We had ice axe, but was not really necessary. Fun climb with my brother.

Drove all the way to Queen Mine with no problem at all. Started at 5:30 and summited at 11:00am. Sub-zero temps all day long. So cold! There was hardly any snow at all. We brought crampons and ice axes and didn't have to use them at all. I left my trekking poles on Montgomery, if you find them, please PM me! Awesome summit with awesome views.

I had the flu and it was a tough day. Very remote. Saw only one person all day. We parked at the wrong spot and it made the trip much longer than it should have been. A couple feet of snow and some wild horses, glissading. A real gem.

RedwicState Highpoint #41!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2011


After a nearly two-year hiatus from State Highpointing, a friend and I sought out, and successfully summited, Boundary Peak.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: The so-called "scree" is just loose gravelly-sand... kind of annoying but manageable. The loosest stuff is on the lower slopes; the upper slopes are bouldery. Also, there is a well-defined trail basically leading from the Trail Canyon TH to the summit; no scrambling needed and very easy to follow. I wouldn't rate this as a peak for amateur hikers, but it is not very difficult, either.

A very nice hike in the White Mountains. Traversed over to Montgomery as well and made it back to the car well before the thunderstorms started.

mlandau3Trail Canyon Variant  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2011


What holds this mountain up? A tremendous amount of loose scree on the variant. Great views of the Sierra's from the ridge once the scree was below us.

fedakTrail Canyon Variant  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2011


Altitude impacted me far more than I was expecting and the slog up the sandy Trail Canyon variant slope took me quite a bit longer than I was planning.

Anyone done both the Trail Canyon and Trail Canyon variation routes and can compare the two? Might try the standard route if I go back to do Montgomery at some point. The variant was a rather steep overly sandy slog.

Pics/commentary are here.
