trexkerry5 peak day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2015
Fun day of hiking, from Mt. Rose summit took the Relay Road, cross country from due south of Tamarack, up and over the peak, back down to Relay Road, up to Relay Peak where I scrambled up the last 300 feet rather than walking the road, then took the new trail to Mt. Houghton, then cross country down from Houghton to the saddle with Mt. Rose, picked up the Mt. Rose trail here, took that until it was time for the easy cross country to Church Peak, then rejoined the Mt. Rose trail to the summit of Mt. Rose. Took the Mt. Rose trail all the way back down. TR will be posted HERE.

Picked off Relay first then headed over to Houghton, took a stupid way down from there but ended up finding a decent chute to get me back down on to the Rose trail.

I ran a third of the way up and down this mountain. It was a nice day, without much smoke. It took only 1 1/2 hours to the summit from the trailhead.
