mlarkin2002Snow slog  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2011
I thought the west slopes, being covered in snow, might make for an easy trip. Not so. 60 degF temperatures softened the snow to make it a major slog.

I hiked the western route option 1. The road is more of a cow path than a road. There is another road that goes right to the north ridge off of Hwy 447 that may be a better option. Hiked half way up the western slope following a cow path. It was king of brushy hiking up the north ridge. Beautiful clear day.

Am not getting the 3hr car/car; our group of four took 8 hours car/car with about 30 minutes at the top. Of course, we were hip deep in snow for a good portion of that and slogging post hole to post hole did take some time. Amazing views and pleasantly deserted.

A nice and quick climb. The sand was still damp, allowing for easy cross country.

Hiked in from NV-447 on a cool morning. The sandy slopes were in great shape following a good rain a couple days ago, but the skies were hazy so the views were limited.

Climbed with bearbnz after work on a Friday --- left Reno at 1330, left the car at 1500, made the summit at 1650, got back to the car at 1810, got back home at 1945. Great peak with a great view! The Sierra Club DPS has put a register there....

A straightforward desert peak-start on the sand, scramble over a few rocks, and flail through the sagebrush. Fantastic views in all directions from the summit. Descended the drainage just south of Little Jenny Creek. Car-to-car round trip just over 3 hours, including a short summit visit. Arrived back at the car just as the last light of the day was fading.
