Awesome! That trail doesn't mess around with the climbing. Messed up and signed in as Oct. 30th instead of the 29th. Idiot. Second favorite summit next to Baldy.

Didn't have a route description and there was lots of fresh snow, so I just went straight up towards the peak. As much as waist deep snow to deal with. Coming down was lots of fun.

Final peak on an unexpectedly scenic and enjoyable dayhike around the North Loop and South Loop trails, tagging Fletcher, Mummy, Lee, Charleston, and this en route. It would have been nice to continue on to Harris, but I had no exit strategy besides slogging back along the road to my car, so I decided that would have to wait for another time.

This was one of the first peaks I climbed. I did this with a group of other guys. Started out from the Harris Springs Trailhead. The views from the top were great.

bagged griffith on the way out from charleston on the south loop. this one made three peaks in two days. the views of vegas from here are superb. it almost makes you wish that you had a hang glider to be able to float all the way back down to the strip.

TracyStart 'em YOUNG! Route climbed: Harris Springs Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 1993

Tracy

I climbed this one with my sister, Amy; her husband, Michael Eschenberg; my 4-year, 9-month old son, Lance; and my 35-month old son, Travis; six days after their sister Jackie was born (Mom and Jackie stayed home). Lance hiked most of the way without help, but Michael helped me take turns carrying Travis when he got too tired to keep hiking on his own. We all made the summit.

cp0915's posting below is right on the mark - this is a terrific day hike! The view from Griffith Peak is one of the very best in the Spring Mountains, and the trip up and down is far less taxing than the Charleston Peak death march.

Minimal patchy snow at the summit, and it's melting fast. My 8 year old made another summit. Woo Hoo!

July 23, 2005-A nice dayhike, the ground is damp from recent rains.

DesertAdventuresRoute Climbed: Echo Chute direct. Date Climbed: 04-02-05 and 04-17-05
Skinned up both times w/ a splitboard and had awesome rides down!



On the 17th we had some stiff wind and it gets me to want to break out the kiteboarding kite and see if I can make it from Griffith to Charleston Peak riding the wind!



The log book is currently burried under over 20' of snow according to GPS.



Word of caution, snow is melting quickly and we saw some rockfall, so be carefull of flying objects and enjoy the beauty

Mt. Charleston Backcountry Group



Have fun,

We had hoped to replicate my brother's truly heroic ascent of Charleston Peak the previous 4th of July, but we were forced to settle for Griffith Peak instead. No matter - we were cashed, the views were wonderful, and this fine peak gave us a real sense of accomplishment.

I hiked up North Canyon Trail, summitted Charleston Peak, and tagged Griffith on the way down via South Canyon Trail. A great hike.

A very nice half-day hike. The South Loop Trail is exceptionally scenic and the summit views are considerable... Mt. Charleston and Mummy Mountain to the north, the Sheep Range and Gass Peak to the northeast, Muddy Peak, Lake Mead and Frenchman Mountain, oh, and Las Vegas to the ESE, Black Mountain, Mt. Potosi and Red Rock to the south, and Telescope Peak to the west. Nice!
