|I climbed this on the second day of a monthlong solo trip to Death Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike--ridge-top traverses most of the way. Saw a group of chukars in the wash just before the route climbs out up onto the low ridges.|

Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2007
I took the ridge route up (close to eastern trace on Wingding's map, will post exact trace later), and the wash down. I much preferred the ridge route.
1h45m up, 1h15m down, but I jogged part of the way back.
Passed some mystery hikers, apparently going to the peak; never saw them again, even after 40 min on top and lots of scanning the lower slopes. Their car was still at the "trailhead" when I came back
This is a fairly fast drive from Vegas via us95; on a good day, takes just a bit over 2 hrs, and is about 140 miles.
Thimble looks much nicer.

|I solo scrambled up this one on New Year's Eve, 2005. Lots of fun trying to find my way up. There were less than a dozen names in the summit log for 2005. Snow/Rain in the Panamints, but just wind and brooding clouds overhead for me. Took me a few hours round trip. Good fun!|

|Made the summit in one hour and thirty-four minutes. I was the second person to summit of the winter season. Judging from the log at the summit, I would say less than 50 people a year climb this one. It's fun, especially if you are looking for solitude.|

|Drove a looong way from the Bay Area down to DV for a couple of days to check out the wildflowers. Corkscrew was buried amongst the clouds on Sat morning, so no views on this one. I enjoyed the hike up the wash, though, especially the scrambling past the two dry falls--fun!|
Later that day, I drove down to the south end of the park and tagged Sheephead Mountain--not on any list, but it was close to the road, looked cool, and had a name. It was also a pleasant stroll. The clouds had lifted by that point, so I was treated to nice views.

|Entered the clouds at about 5000 feet. From there, the snow and rain started and the views ended. 20 feet visibility on the summit. Windy and cold.|
The roundtrip was only 3 hours, so I was still anxious when I got back to the car - headed to Jubilee Mountain in southern DVNP. A short hike but very pleasant. The register hadn't seen an entry in like two years, if I remember correctly.

|It was very windy near the top with light snow, you could see the sunny sandy landscape through the clouds. I enjoyed this wild desert peak.|
