mrchad9Queen Mine Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


Great day up the Queen Mine route, no snow on the route and just a few drifts on the way to Montgomery, but quite a bit of snow visible on White Mtn. Lots of ladybugs to keep us company.

Interesting to hear all the state highpointers going on about how this is so tough, they having not done any other western states yet.

TheRootsterAhh, "geopolitics"  Sucess!


Climbed with Jim and CoreyMutt via Queen Canyon Mine. It does indeed seem folly to climb this peak, since when you stand on the summit you can look up the same ridgeline to higher Mt Mongomery, across the border. But, "state high peaks" and all that rot, I suppose it had to be done. In any case, it's a great area. Lots of hot springs in the area to soak in afterwards--my favorite has an outstanding view of Mt Morrison.

PellucidWombatBad Weather 2 Years in a Row  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2009


Climbed the NW Ridge from 7,000 ft in the Chalfant Valley as a start to a traverse of the White Mtns. Horrendous weather and my team mates leaving me solo caused me to rethink plans and bail on the traverse. Snow about this time last year kept me from getting anywhere near Boundary's summit, so at least this was an improvement! Maybe next year . . .

Oh, the Bristlecones!! What else can you say about that climb? Straight shotted this one from the north on Janie's Ranch road about a mile or two short of the summer trail up at the back of the gulch. Up and down overnight. The cylocybin breakfast kicked my ass at about the ridge line prior to the summit climb. Man, I sure missed my dad at that point. I do not practice such meals anymore. Praise God, sober for 12+ years. Sweet summit pic. Well worth the effort.

Very fun hike. I met a 74 year old man hiking this peak with 6 little dogs. I didn't mind the scree - it made for a fast descent. Did North Schell the day before and did White Mountain Peak the next day.

trail creek was quite serene, and somewhat unique as well... the walk through the canyon was pleasant... the climb to bp was unexciting... the traverse to montgomery was interesting

nebbenDead battery!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2007


Moogie737 and I woke to find a dead battery in the car, but we climbed anyway and were able to coordinate a jumpstart from the summit on a weak-cell-signal. We found many nice folks at the Queen Canyon Mine who were willing to help, negating the previously scheduled jumpstart from a wrecker in Tonopah, who never showed up anyway. In any case, I thought it was quite a beautiful mountain.

Cool peak, pretty easy. Not much to look at either. Make sure you stay to the right and follow the creek bed to the saddle. Save you some effort.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2008


Beautiful day but windy at the saddle. Very steep loose rock but made it up fine. Down was worse, and didn't see a single person all day.

Hiked with hgrapid and Erik. Still smokey, but better than White Mtn the day before. Tried the traverse over to Montgomery but didn't have my heart in it. The horned toad on the summit was hilarious.

Took the trail up from the saddle. It is very steep the whole way. We reached the summit around 9:45am, after a 3-hour slog.
There was still lots of smoke, but it wasn't too bad on the mountain itself.

With Tom Becht, met up with three others camped below Boundary. Followed what were probably 96avs01's tracks to Boundary, then went on to Montgomery. Tougher than expected with tons of soft snow. Trip Report

Quite a bit of work in the deep snow above 11,000 feet. Very windy and chilly but super clear skies!! Took the Queen Mine Route.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2008


After punting on an attempt on the 26th due to heavy snow and minimal visibility we were able to slog out the route from Queen Canyon Mine on the 29th using snowshoes almost the entire day. Doubt many folks have to put in the effort that we did to top out on this highpoint.

NavySeabeeNot Even Close!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2008


Man, did the weather put a damper on my climbing plans for Memorial Day.

Our plans of camping at Queen's Canyon Mine didn't materialize since my Brother-in-law didn't make it to Benton until 11 PM so we slept in the back of his jeep. Drove up to about 9200 feet and spun out so we hiked up the road from there in about 4-6" of fresh snow and minimal visibility.

Made it Queen's Canyon saddle and start our traverse around the ridge in 6-10" of snow and near white-out conditions. Vis would vary from 1/4 mile to 25 yards. Called it a day at about 10,000 feet. Not worth being a statistic.

Had to scrap Plan B (Glass Mtn Ridge) and Plan C (Crater Mtn/South Crater) as their summits became obscured by clouds and dark skies as well.

Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2007


Approached via Queen Canyon Mine, and climbed up ridgeline. Followed ridgeline Southwest and set up base camp at 11,000 feet. From big ridgline, crossed saddle and climbed up Northeast slope. There was between 2" and 2' of snow with drifts towards summit. Had to turn back 700 feet short of summit becasuse partner had altitude sickness and couldn't continue. Spent three days on the mountian, and trip was approximately 6 miles round trip. Saw wild horses along the way.
