MoapaPkNice with a touch of snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2013


Up DPS A (sort of). We looped up over the other two 13530+ peaklets, and down the ridge NE of the Jumpoff. Take Bob Burd's route off Jumpoff if you want descend that way-- we stayed on ridge and entered mountain mahogany Hell, then stream-crossing-thorny-plant Hell. Much nicer than I expected -- the snow added a lot -- and tougher than I expected.

The DPS "2wd" road to TH at 8300' (in Middle Creek Canyon) is very rough for the last 3.3 miles to campsite by stream. I got my soob (7.3" clearance) up there without bottoming out, but only by extremely careful wheel placement and driving very slowly in ~15 places. Use an HC vehicle.

CTC in 8:35 from the west (see Larry Tidball's link). This was a grunt going up and a toe jammer on the return. Interesting area particulary up top.

asmrzGood early spring outing  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2005


Penelope May and I hiked the peak from the NE in a very deep snow on May 14, 2005. On our way down we decided to take a shortcut that Penelope remembered from years ago, but we ended up benighted in one of the steep canyons. Had a fire and a wonderful bivi, even slept a bit. The view of the northern Sierra from the summit of Dubois is really nice.

I didn't think it was that bad although I was sore from the postholing adventure the day before. The first couple of 1000' to the ridge top took us an hour. After that, I was just an anchor on Matthew and Glenn. Boring top although the views were great.

I thought the outing mediocre, but not as bad as Mike (below) thought. Trip Report

Big slog from middle creek. Could be one of the worst outings I've ever had.

In 9 hours from Middle Creek with Daryn. A little snow and a lot of wind. Great views of the Sierras and the desert. See my pix at
