We took the trail on the west side. We never made it to the summit. I now live in New Hampshire. My climbing buddy e-mailed me the article on King Lear from the Reno paper. Was that you that was interviewed? I told my friend I hope I get back there to try to summit one day. A great place.
Ah --- so did you start at Buckbrush Springs or take McGill Canyon? Yeah, I was the quotee, thanks to Mark (the reporter). He just went up there, in fact, and took the east approach. Here is the article from last week: King Lear in the News
I love it up in the Black Rock (away from the RVs and touristy areas, anyhow).
