Matthew HollimanNorth Loop/South Loop dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2007

Matthew Holliman

Somewhere between Lee Peak and Mt. Charleston is where the North Loop trail started to get beautiful, and it stayed like that for most of the way back via the South Loop. Really nice area--shame my camera batteries ran out right around there. :-(

The summit was cold and windy, so I didn't spend long up there. Oh well. I'm pretty sure I'll head back here again sometime.

Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2007


Late start and no plan to bivouac led to me not summiting but still a great winter day alone on the mountain. Snow above 10K left me postholing a bit but I really enjoyed it and plan to return for another try in winter.

SusanMVia Lee Canyon to North Loop
Date Climbed: Oct 29, 2006


This route shaved a lot of time off the normal trails. More snow would have made this route a lot more fun. It was a challenge to go through the avalanche debris with limited snow. We couldn't get a great axe hold and mostly climbed class 2-3 with a few icy steep slopes. This route is best left for mid winter.

Date Climbed: Oct 21, 2006


Climbed with Tina. This was my 3rd time up this route. Started from Mary Jane Falls T/H at 7:00am. Reached the summit by 11:45am. Spent almost an hour at the top. Descended the SLT.

Route Climbed: East Face
Date Climbed: March 20, 2006

Climbed with SP'ers mdostby, Matt K and Kevin Cannon. Started from the Mary Jane Falls trailhead at 6:10am. Kevin and I summited by 1:33pm under white-out conditions....again very windy and cold at the summit. Didn't even bother signing the summit register. Left summit at 1:37pm. Back at the Mary Jane Falls trailhead by 4:55pm. We had much tougher snow conditions (lots of trail breaking) that when I climbed on January 14, 2006. Still a fun day in the mountains with friends.

Route Climbed: East Face
Date Climbed: January 14, 2006

Climbed with Steve-hamilton, mdostby, awagher and ming21. Started at 6:15am or so. Summited by 12:35pm. Cold & windy at the summit. Back athe Mary Jane Falls trailhead by 4:30pm. The East Face is a great and quick route to the summit of Charleston Peak. Enjoyed it greatly. We had easier snow conditions compared to my January 2004 epic.

Route Climbed: via a NE ridge from Kyle Canyon; descent via circumnavigation of Charleston down to Trail Canyon
Date Climbed: January 3, 2004

This has been by far just about the most grueling and exhaustive climb I've done (...and I've done my share of climbs this past 2 years: several California 14ers as day climbs, got to the top of the East Horn of Mt Williamson, CA in winter via the NE Ridge, summited Mt Whitney in full winter conditions, plus others). The reason for all this was deep snow and routefinding without a map. I broke trail for approx 3000 vertical feet on 3-foot powdery snow. I had my snowshoes from the start all throughout the day basically. TR here.

redsplashman23Charleston Peak Via Lee Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2006


Tough hike going up "the Line" ski run, then went to the left up a 1000+ elevation gain over .6 miles up a chute. Then it was just along the north loop trail to the summit. Came down the same way. It was rough watching my step down the chute and trying to avoid stickers on plants.

Hiked again via Trail Canyon. 5-12-07

I summited this peak with about 10 other folks. We went up to the ridgeline Saturday and camped in the meadow. The following morning we summited. Weather was great just a little breeze and the sun was out most of the time...just occasionally ducking behind a cloud.

Trail to the top. Bristlecone pines along the trail are a highlight. Second ascent in May 2003 on the snow was quite a bit more grueling.

This is a very zen-like experience. The brutal climb up the mummy mountain side is excellent, and the walk stays above 10,000 feet until you begin your final descent back to the road. Wonderful. Bristlecones are stalwart and god-like!

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2006


I climbed via Big Falls route. It took 2 hours and 45 minutes to get to the summit. There was hail and lightning at the summit. Took the south loop down so that I could see the plane crash. Great climb.

Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2006


day two in my quest for four ultra-prominence peaks in four days brought me to charleston peak. this peak was much more lush than hayford. the, little mentioned, false summit provided a some frustration before reaching the summit to what was otherwise a relaxed, uneventful climing day. also bagged griffith on the way out.

GuiltyNorth Loop to Summit down South Loop to Griffith and back to North Loop Trailhead.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2006


Nice weather, with a little snow on the North Loop Trail. Stop at the plane wreck while heading back on the South Loop Trail and took some pictures. This was a big 'circle-loop' hike that I did under 8 hours.

Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2006


Perfect weather w/ a nice breeze and good company make for a great day. Big Falls is really flowing and several snow patches in avy chutes made for fun glisade on the way down. Lot's of other large falls are flowing on the way up that are seldom seen. Big Falls is approximately 7 miles round trip w/ 4000' plus of elevation gain and one of the most direct routes to summit.

Date Climbed: May 23, 1990


In May of 1990, I climbed this one with Jerry Faircloth. This was at least my 5th time on the summit. I had previously summited via Trail Canyon and the north loop on November 1, 1980 (solo) and in the 1970's with my dad and two brothers. The previous 2 times (once in '76 & again in '77) up the south loop were with fellow scouts Paul Utz, Jay Groesbeck, Bruce Koellicker, Mark Nilsen, and my 2 brothers and my Dad. In the summer of 1994 I led a group of scouts up Carpenter Canyon from the Pahrump side, but we turned around and went back down after getting to Peak Spring.
