This is one of the most fun hikes in the state. I've done it twice and will be happy to do it again.

MoapaPkover the years...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 1983


Went 3 times -- 1983, 1985 and 1989. At those times, there was no register on top, but a fairly large circular windbreak, which may have been the remnants of a "sacred mountain" Amerind monument.

Things I remember:
1) if you don't use a GPS, it is good to mark the place where you break through the cliffs onto the top -- say with a piece of orange cloth. It is very easy to get disoriented on the big, broad top, and miss the correct chute on way down. Maybe so many climbers have gone since 1989, that there is a more obvious use trail. Maybe not.

2)The "easy way" seemed mostly class 2, with one very short section of class 3 in the gully. There was certainly nothing like what I normally see rated as class 4.

Great scramble, on solid rock, the kind I'd been wanting for quite a while. No one had signed the trail register since Thanksgiving. The silence out there is wonderful. We saw a juvenile mountain lion (yes, I'm sure) walking down the road on the drive out. He didn't run from us or several cars: not normal behavior.

Turned into the mountain before the large white arrow on the ground. Made a traverse of the talus as oppossed to a straight up climb. The scrambling in the gully is now a little easier. Someone has spray painted all the hand and foot holds red. After gully, trail is easy to resume. Was quite windy the day I went but the rock walls really buffered the wind and made it quite enjoyable.

This is an awesome climb - great scrambling. We climbed it over Thanksgiving Break this past November. The view you command from the top is pretty impressive, too.
