Route Climbed: Up South Loop, down North Loop/Trail Canyon Date Climbed: May 16, 2002
Nice morning hike/run. There were only a few small patches of snow on the trail. Running shoes were sufficient. Many thanks to Glenn for his great Charleston Peak page. I used it as my sole reference for the hike.
Route Climbed: North Loop/Trail Canyon Date Climbed: November 1998
My first summit of this great southern Nevada peak. The trail seems much longer than it needs to be, but the good news is there are sections that are not steep at all and it is possible to move very quickly if you want to. No view on this day as it was cloudy with occassional light snow. If you are going to Las Vegas for fun or business, take a day off to explore this area!
Route Climbed: South Loop/North Loop/Trail Canyon Date Climbed: November 5, 2001
My first summit after an aborted attempt in 1996. The high altitude is very interesting. I felt fine but could only move very slowly -- baby steps all the way up the final summit. No snow on the trail, despite late season. Where's the casino?
