Day HikerRoute Climbed: Mormon Creek Date Climbed: 2004 January 02  Sucess!

Day Hiker

There was a small amount of snow at the trailhead, and of course it increased with elevation. About two miles up the trail, there was enough snow to put on crampons, so I did, but above 9000 feet, I was wishing I hadn't left my snowshoes in the car. There was about a foot of soft snow that substantially added to the difficulty in hiking to the summit. It was a beautiful day to hike this mountain, and I'm glad I made the 500-mile drive down here from Nevada.

In 2000 I made a one-day turnaround from Phoenix to the range and back in one long 20-hour day, but still had a great hike. In 2003 my wife and I approached the top from the north and had a pleasant half-day outing. The 'parks' (saddles) are beautiful!
