Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2014


Long drive down from Tri Cities for this fairly easy hike, but it was nice seeing Lake Tahoe and Virginia City. Lots of people on the trails, and tons of tourists in the region in general. Nice views, but smoke from a range fire had things hazed up a bit. This was my wife's highest summit to date.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2014


Started at 7:30, summitted at 9:30; it was quite toasty at that point; gave out gatorade and water to less prepared hikers on the way down. Traversed over to Church Peak as a bonus.

Route Climbed: Mt. Rose Summit Trail Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2009 Sucess!
This hike would make a good early season warm up because of the excellent views. I really have no clue why it's rated "strenuous" by the park service; it's basically flat until the trail heads up the SW gully and only then becomes moderate. It was windy and cold at the top. I hiked this with my wife Anna.

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: March 14, 2005 Success!
We expected a winter climb that would feel like spring, and got that, until we reached ~10K ft., when the temperature dropped like a brick. The route's false summits, mixed snow conditions, and wind-chill made the climb all the more exciting. Climbed with balajisv.

Enjoyed a nice, clear day and fun hike with a friend. A little icy in spots- poles helped. Great 360 views of both Tahoe and the Great Basin at the summit.

Date Climbed: May 15, 2014


We caught this one on our way to do Mt. Shasta. Nice walk in the woods to stretch the legs during the 12 hour drive from Salt Lake City, UT to Mt. Shasta, CA. Windy on top--what's new. IVD

Date Climbed: May 10, 2014
First summit of Mt. Rose. Approached from Church's pond. Found a use trail on the ridge behind the pond that went to Contact pass but had trouble following it because of patchy snow. Set out cross-country from Contact pass to the saddle between Church and Mt. Rose, then up the main trail to the summit. Returned via use trail on the east side of Mt. Rose then cutting across to Contact Pass. This turned out to be surprisingly steep - not sure I'd recommend it to others while there's still snow on the ground.

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2013


A local favorite and one of my many trips to the summit. Great weather this time along with a clear day makes the views impeccable. The New Mount Rose Trail is a medium but very enjoyable hike. With the right pacing and determination this mountain is a great way to experience the best of Reno-Tahoe.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013


We reached the summit in less than 2 hours to view a full moon. Have hiked to the summit a few times, including a run to the summit in August of 2012 in 1h 12 minutes. But this was the first evening hike.

Loved the last half of the hike, amazing upper ridge, spectacular views from the top over the desert haze. No wind, no clouds. Chipmunks on summit. Good warmup for White mtn peak hike a few days later.

bctahoe75Great Reward Easy Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2013


What should have been an easy (4 hour - 10 mile roundtrip) hike turned out to be a 6 3/4 hour hike due to the bad back/knee of my friend who I had brought along to do this hike. The first 2 1/2 miles went well then the steeper climbing started to take its toll on his weak spots. In the end he made it and marveled at the amazing views and the stark contrast of the western slope with all the trees and lakes, and the eastern slope with the brown Nevada high desert below! No worries, after great pizza at JJ's in Reno, he was golfing the next day in Carson without much pain at all.

A true walk up. Hiking through the waterfalls and wildflowers was far more interesting than the dreary summit ridge. No need to repeat this hike.

Pretty waterfall on the way up, the trail was annoyingly long on the way down. Nice views of Tahoe on the summit. Done on my drive home from Shasta

Approached on the Jones Creek Trail. Began post holing. Snowshoes necessary from 1/4 mile east of Church's Pond. Crampons necessary the last several hundred feet. Had the top to meself, no signs in the snow of humans there for weeks or months. Lenticular clouds in the sky to the southeast. Glorious view!

I did the normal hike on the way up but then went over to the summit of Church Peak from the saddle between the two and then cut over to the trail on the west edge of the saddle on the way down. There was a faint use path in some places.

1:48 up, 26 min. on top, 25 min. to Church, 1:39 down, 4:19 total RT.
