Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2013


Hiked up on a beautiful, hot Easter morning. Great visibility, and very peaceful out in the desert. I had to (unfortunately) rent a high-clearance vehicle for the day just to get to the trailhead, but it was well worth it.

Crappy visibility in the Vegas valley- probably should have waited till the air quality was better to do this one. Route was easier than I was expecting.

Pics and commentary here.

Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2009


Followed the north route, no difficulties at all. Four hours r/t, including stops and summit break. Stunning weather: near-zero humidity, 150-mile views, cool, slight breeze. A great little half-day hike for a nice "little" peak. My trip report

1.5 hrs up the standard route. Neat views of the city and surrounding peaks from the top. Good route for a quick fix outside of the city.

ShinLVclimbed from South  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 14, 2008


Climbed from South (North end of Decatur). Took little over 5 hours to go up, because I had to check the GPS route all the way and Geocaching. I think I can make it in 4.5 hours next time. It was about 8.5 miles and more than 5,100 ft elevation gain for only one way up.
Fortunately, I met one guy at the peak and went down from North with him. (He gave me a ride back to my car)

My friend Bob and I climbed this little peak today. Took us a couple hours going up and about one and a half coming down.

Great weather out there today. There were a couple police choppers coming and going from the summit all day today. Perhaps they were doing some type of maintenance?

Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2007


I climbed this one from the north with my wife a friend and his two daughters. This was his first summit with his girls and they did great despite a windy summit. 5 and 7 years old, where do they get the energy? We took the service road past the parking area to shave a couple miles off for the girls. The rangers were out this weekend though and those four miles cost us $175. They've never ticketed us before, but at that cost they won't again either!

The roads are in good shape leading out to Gass Peak. High clearance recommended, without high clearance your trailhead drive time will be substantially increased.

I climbed this one from the east with my brother Eric on New Year's Day, 1986. The LVMP Dept Radio repeater antennas on the summit were not fully installed but were under construction.

Climbed with my dad, Susan, Tyler, and Ron. Nice weather on this hike, not too hot. There was a trail up the ridge for most of the way. Great view of Las Vegas and all of the surrounding mountains.

Ranger217Route Climbed: North Date Climbed: September 6, 2005  Sucess!


Nice hike. 78 deg at 7 AM to 90 deg at 12 PM. Found it longer and slightly more challenging than it looked from the trailhead. Disappointed that that I did not see any Big Horn Sheep. Best part was being the only person in at least 50 sq miles. Fun watching the 60 mph dive-bombing swallows on the ridges. Some of the trail wasn't too clear. Best help was this website: http://www.birdandhike.com/Hike/DNWR/Gass_Peak/Gass_Peak.htm
