Date Climbed: Mar 11, 2007


Summited Hayford via deadman cyn in four hours. Snow was patchy up near the cabin and was patchy along the ridgeline. Nice, well marked route. Clear, cool, light winds. Could see the snow capped Sierra crest on the far western horizon. Great day on the mountain.

Redsplashman (see below entry) and my self had the mountain all to our selves as snow made the peak a bit more interesting. Sacha was a great hiking companion and we had an enjoyable day and it was nice to get this one in the winter.

We came prepared for a snow climb. It turned out there was very little snow left. Still a nice day. Photos are here: Hayford Peak hike

This was a nice hike, except for the thunderstorm that chased me out of the canyon on the way down. At least the rain was refreshing.

summited this dry peak with a great climbing partner. we left extra water in the cabin which got stolen by some kids that were looking for waterfalls to play in. we had the last laugh when we told them that they had hiked into the wrong mountain range. that must have hurt after hiking four miles down a rocky wash in flip-flops. otherwise a great day, and great start to my four day climbing adventure.

Very hot, several members of our group ran out of water. Luckily I carried extra for training purposes. They don't tease me so much anymore.

Duane and I climbed Hayford for our ninth Ultra prominence peak in nine days. We started up the draw from the cabin, but quickly tired of this and headed up to the ridge west of the draw. There we found a cairned use trail that led to Hayford's SW ridge. On the west face we skirted the rock outcrops on the left, staying close to the base of the rocks. Nice cool day, even on the descent. Found a flat tire on the rental on our return to the TH. Happily it was a nail instead of a rock, so it was fixable!

Day HikerRoute Climbed: Deadman Canyon to Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: 09 April 2005  Sucess!

On a day that the Las Vegas weather forecast was for wind but sunny/pc skies and 0% chance of precipitation, we had some intense winter weather in the Sheep Mountains. This made for an especially interesting and challenging hike to the summit of Hayford Peak. I'll have to go back sometime because I'm curious to see what the route looks like without snow on it.

cp0915Route Climbed: standard - Deadman Cyn to SW Ridge Date Climbed: April 9, 2005  Sucess!


A surprise storm during the previous night blanketed the mountain and surrounding desert with snow down to around 4500 feet. The mountain was still socked in by storm clouds when we rolled up to the trailhead.

A pretty tough dayhike, considering all the old (& new) snow on the ground, the constant winds (particularly on the SW ridge), the low visibility minorly hampering our route-finding, the hard pellets of snow pelting our faces as it blew at us, and the f'in unexpected spring cold. After full conditions for much of the upper route, the snow and wind stopped and the clouds parted briefly as we took our last few steps to the summit. The partial views were great.

A little icy on the SW ridge in places, particularly on the steeper portions (of course). Ice axes were essential; crampons would have been nice, but...

Thanks to my partners Mike and Dean for the extra clothes.
