Ken Jones, Dennis Poulin and I were happy to get this one on the third day of our 5 day effort together. Prior to this one we had picked off Beaver Peak near Carlin and Wilson Peak well north of Elko. Ken and I had our eyes on this one for some time and really had very little information about it. Thanks to a bit of information from Mark Nichols, we had found out that he and Andy Martin had been able to make their way up Felt Canyon and access the summit from there. We did likewise and perhaps found even a better route to the top as we encountered none of the difficulties that they had faced. When we obtained the summit, we were treated to some of the best views in the eastern part of Nevada. Well worth the effort despite having some dealings with the Felt canyon tick population.
