Car camped at Lobdell Lake(No road difficulties to Lobdell Lake with my 2wd pickup truck). Great crescent moonset and starfilled skies. Started at 3am. class 1 road to summit. Continued on to Wheeler peak on road that approached to within one-half mile of summit.
Camped at Lobell Lake and drove part way up the road (stopped by snow banks). Nice hike from there with stellar views. Climbed Bald Mtn (to the east in Nevada) later in the day via Nye Canyon.
Did Grant Peak to finish off the Nevada State county highpoints
the next day. Partner was Dennis Poulin. Gorgeous views from the top of Patterson.
The long way from Lobdell Lake Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2006
What beautiful views. I'm surprised more people have tried this peak. It is a very enjoyable hike. For us the wind was screaming and it was cold on the summit so didn't spend much time there. There is no summit register, but I did find a geocache, so signed that.
