|Dean||Nice to see...|
|another Nevada one posted here at SP. Was there a John Vitz or MacLeod/Lilly register on Buckskin? Just curious. Also, is this outside the Humboldt National Forest? Again, just curious.|

|Hi Dean. I didn't find a summit register although I looked for a long time. But then again I didn't find one on Pueblo either and there's certainly one there. As my wife says, I look with my eyes closed.|
My map shows Pueblo well inside the HTNF.
A question for you. Is there anything I should attach the page to? You and your pals are all CHP and prominence etc experts. Does Buckskin belong anywhere?

|Hi Martin, yes, Buckskin has 1363 feet of prominence. See this page for more: Buckskin Mtn For more on prominence, go HERE.|
Nevada is suddenly getting attention with your page, Caleb's page and my pages on Chokecherry and So. Pahroc. Watch for another one, Buck Mountain, which will be posted soon. : )

|calebEOC||I gave this one serious thought|
|On my last Nevada foray, didnt bring any maps for it though. A very prominent looking mountain, I was surprised this didnt make the P2K cutoff. Nice page btw.|

|Thanks for the nice words.|
To be absolutely honest, apart from the Garmin map on my GPS, I didn't either.
I couldn't get to Granite because FR084 was closed but above where I was stopped was this lovely sharp peak with a likely looking route up the west side. My GPS told me it was Buckskin Mountain, so up I went. The product is what you see before you :)
Being a foreigner, I'm not at all sure if Buckskin belongs on any list P2K or otherwise - so I've asked the maestro - Dean - for his input.
