Superb views and a sweet (and challenging) dirt run - this run should be a classic. Great to meet so many nice people on the summit. Acclimatized by summiting Dunderberg Peak the day before.

I signed up a team of four (Steven Stembridge, Justin McEwen, John Tennert and myself) and we joined about 50 to 60 others in hiking Mt. Grant as part of the annual Memorial Challenge hike. We enjoyed the weather, the great company, and especially the hard work of all those that made the event possible.

Don Nelsen

This could have been a HP-er convention, so many came from all over the nation. Jerry and Betty Brekhus drove in from Montana, HP-ing on the way. Peter Anderson came in from Virginia, Bob Burd from Fresno, Bob Bolton and I came down from Vancouver, WA and Dave Coville flew in from Colorado. About a hundred folks made the trek which included about 35 county highpointers from across the country. I made the summit in 5 hours, 51 minutes - a great day!

Organizers and volunteers did a great job with Mt. Grant Memorial Challenge. Great to see cohp'ers from near and far. The 3 bears and bighorn sheep were an extra treat.

Participated in the Mt. Grant Challenge with a great many other highpointers. Completed the 17mi to the summit in just under 4.5hrs. Had a great time on the mountain and a great time meeting all the other folks. Hats off to the volunteers who put it together and made it happen! Trip Report

This was a very well-organized event. Special thanks to all those organizers and volunteers who made this event a big success. I got to see some of my peakbagging friends, and I made a few new ones. I hiked the final 7.5 miles to the true summit. This was my 90th USA CoHP.

Late summer this year and the snow still lingered on the upper roads. Had the mountain all to myself on a very windy day. 3rd to sign the register this year.

Drove in from the North with views of a very snowy north face, but actually the route was almost entirely snow free. I parked at 6700' when a hit a short rough section and was uncertain of the conditions ahead. You could however drive to about 7000' where there is a campsite. Beyond this point the road is overgrown with willows, and only a short bit further, there are large angular boulders in the road. If you walk to the end of Lapon Cyn Rd, you only have less than 1/2 mile of x-country before hitting the upper roads and generally easy terrain at the top. There were lots of signs of bear activity and I ran into one in the lower part of the canyon.

Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2008
We drove my Nissan Pathfinder as far into Baldwin Canyon as we could, then mountain biked almost all the way to the summit. We did encounter a locked gate when we entered the Hawthorne Army Depot, but there were no signs indicating we weren't welcome. A long day, but it was made considerably easier with the help of the mountain bikes. We were on roads the whole time.

Had a beautiful but long climb via Lapon Canyon. FYI~ we were hiking down and several military vehicles passed by on a nearby road. If they saw us, they didn't care.

My dad and I got the key from the depot and drove to about 900 feet below the summit, and made an easy dayhike from there. I visited the summit while he relaxed on the slopes. Obviously, logistically simpler pre-9/11.

Hiked up from the bottom of Lapon Canyon to the summit. Certainly one of the top 3 vistas I've encountered from a summit! The roads are currently closed by the military for security reasons, so no cheating is allowed!
