Came out here intending to hike up the 300 foot higher Hawks Mountain, but Lone Mountain had so much more visual appeal. Scrambled up through the area I referred to as the palisades, required climbing up and over several walls and pinnacles, lots of slab climbing available here. Once I got back from the summit and set up camp I spent another couple hours climbing and exploring caves.
