Shouldn't you also mention that you also installed a new register, Pete? I like the detailed "register rules" at the beginning......but Nevada peaks really don't need the "register policing" that typical California peaks do!
I was surprised, even given that I knew it was only 1900 feet from Hinkey Summit to Granite Peak, how quickly I was able to get up. That was surprise 1 when I summitted on 10/9/2014. The second surprise was just how steep and exposed the last hundred or so feet up to the summit was; pretty sure it qualifies as low-end class 3, at least in spots. As someone who doesn't usually do more than class 2, the class 3 was a bit intimidating, but manageable.
