Another fine page about a Great Basin peak offering an outstanding view.

Superb page. I'll gladly take these "middle of nowhere" peaks to those that have people crawling all over them. There is a lot of beauty in the broad stretches of Nevada that few other places enjoy.

Nice job with this page, dealing with a pretty mountain out in the the middle of nowhere.

This is another peak I would likely never have visited if I hadn't read about it on here--thanks for adding. I really enjoyed this one... there was a bit of fractured rock near the top that reminded me of the NW Ridge on Mt. Morrison, and truly outstanding summit views.



BTW, I noted some more precise mileages for the drive. Resetting the odometer at the end of pavement in Stillwater:

11.7 miles to the 4-way junction (turn right).

Drive 1.0 mile to the wire gate on the left.

I could drive another 3.5 miles (20 minutes!) to a gravelly wash that defeated my trusty Subaru. Two attempts to make it past this resulted only in spinning wheels, so I parked here--seemed like it wasn't the best place to test my vehicle's and/or driving capabilities and get stuck. It was only a ten minute walk to the base of Job's West Ridge from this point.

Excellent work, Matthew. Going to post any photos? Glad you liked the peaks --- after your Flagpole experience I didn't expect you to go chasing anything obscure that I put up......I hate to disappoint.

Oh, I enjoyed Flagpole too--it just wasn't as spicy as I was hoping. Of course, there've been a number of other times when I've found myself on a climb that's harder than expected, and I'd have been grateful for such a discovery. :-)



I've fallen way behind on sorting out my photos (I think it's been two months since I even put any up on my personal page), but when I do, I'll post some if I have any useful/interesting shots that aren't redundant.



P.S. Bob just pointed me to dayhike.net - cool site! I always love seeing more of this kind of stuff.

Oh boy, I've got to climb this one! Any good book that you can suggest that covers some of Nevada's Great Basin Peaks? I have "Desert Summits" but I'm just starting to climb Nevada peaks and they are calling to me. Thanks!

Dave,



I'm not aware of any comprehensive book of the Great Basin peaks. That doesn't mean that there isn't one out there, though --- I've been around enough in Nevada to not need a book, so I haven't had to look for one.



Good luck on your travels --- the Great Basin is an awesome place to explore while there are still relatively few people...

Yeah, I changed it about three months ago. At the time I was looking for a new job and realized that if my prospective employer saw some of the stuff I posted here I'd be hosed. :-)
