On Monday, Dennis and I started up but after 2000 feet, I had a "bad" stomach and we turned around. The heat was bad early in the morning and I either had the 24hour stomach flu or it was heat induced. The next day, we tried again and made our way up to the summit where we found a witness marker but no register. We didn't stay long because we were nervous about some storm clouds to the south. A hard one for me but so glad Dennis was willing to try with me the next day.

We ascended up a drainage to a notch on the false summit ridge, traversed across a steep and loose slope to the summit ridge, and finished the climb up class 2 to class 3 rock. No register was found. Thunderstorms were active in the area, so we called it good and put off White Pine Peak to a later day. I ascended Duckwater solo on the following day by going up the northernmost drainage after hiking on the 4x4 road for a couple of miles. The drainage was choked with brush and avalanche debris, so after awhile I gained a steep (example: more than 800' of gain in the last two tenths of a mile)ridge line and followed it to the summit. A register was found, but only the names of the LVMC members who climbed it the day before were in it. (We were supposed to meet up and climb together, but got our wires crossed and climbed the two peaks on opposite days!)

Toughest and probably most isolated peak I have climbed. I followed a dry wash west to the very steep face south of Currant, then north along the ridge. It felt wonderful to reach this summit.

Duane, Ken, and I bagged this one in a trip that netted us 6 P4Ks in 5 days. We had several more on our agenda, but the early snow and bitter cold weather discouraged us enough to send us home early.

Made my way along ridgeline from the North over tricky sub-summit, to Currant Mountain, and along South to some further highpoints before making the nasty descent back toward the car.

Very few names in the register -- maybe 1/yr. We saw deer/elk bounding down the west side of Currant, far below the cliffs. There may be a way to cross Currant N to Duckwater; we descended to 11100' on the miserable talus and headed N.

September 2004: Reached the north sub-summit after a long and difficult traverse of the north ridge.
June 2007: Reached the true summit from the south ridge using an easier route.
