Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2014


A short walk/class 2 scramble, a little easier if you stay on the east side of the ridge. I couldn't find the ammo can. There were many cairns on and around the summit; it would be interesting to know the significance considering the peak's relative insignificance.

In crampons and without, followed the ridge over from Mt. Rose to this peak. As with my time on Mt. Rose, there was no evidence in the snow that anyone had been on this peak in weeks or months. What made this summit challenging was the descent. I chose to go straight down the East Face in snowshoes and then along the Whites Creek drainage. Yee Haw! Then back to the Jones Creek approach and out.

I did the normal hike on the way up but then went over to the summit of Church Peak from the saddle between the two and then cut over to the trail on the west edge of the saddle on the way down. There was a faint use path in some places.

1:48 up, 26 min. on top, 25 min. to Church, 1:39 down, 4:19 total RT.

This "peak" does not have enough prominence to be considered its own mountain, but due to it being so close to Mount Rose and because it is an officially-named summit I decided to make the trek over to it. I was completely fascinated by the very large piles of rocks scattered on the upper slopes. I kept wondering who put them there, and why.

Snowshoe outing along with Mount Rose and Mount Snowflower. Nice day. Interesting rock formations on Church Peak (looks like cairns everywhere).

Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2008


There was a lot of snow along the trail. It was sometimes hard to follow the trail. It was very windy at the summit. I left some gloves near the top when I was tying my shoe. I had the gloves for 12 years. Unfortunate that I lost them. However, it was a tough summit to get, and I got it in cold and snow on the ground and wind, so I am satisfied.

A quick dayhike to get some exertion at altitude before heading the the High Sierra this week for a couple 14ers. Views were heavily impacted by all the wildfires. Chased down during descent by some hail.
