ShinLVFrom Lovell Wash   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2011

Since BLM closed the gravel road for last 1.5 miles, this hike ends up little over 13 miles round trip.
It was only 6 miles to the Saddle, but it felt longer than that.
Hiking up the canyon part was gorgeous, but walking on the scree made us tired quickly.
We saw only 3-4 sign in per year on the register book. The view from the top was beautiful.

Finally got this one out of the way. We had to do a little route finding after the saddle between Muddy Peak along the ridge which made for some fun scrambling.

DeanA hard day  Sucess!

It was a hard day because I was outta shape. We went in from the TH at Buffington Pockets (high clearance a must) and then from hidden Valley to the saddle between Muddy Peak and the Highpoint. I was with Sacha and he had done Muddy Peak already and since we got a late start, we opted for the Muddy Highpoint. It was nice to finally get to the top and see that old register that sits atop the benchmark. Sacha is a great companion to hike with and he took it easy on me since I was pushing it all day after recovering from a back problem that had kept me from doing anything for three weeks.

I'd put off doing this thing for years because it looked like such a lame slog compared to nearby Muddy Peak. As it turned out, we found some good scrambling along the way, and the slog factor was low.

Summited with DB, Matthew Holliman, Adam Helman and Bob Packard. Matthew and I then went off and bagged Colorock Summit.

We ascended via East Canyon ( Nick N.'s route), climbed Muddy Peak and Muddy High Point and descended through Hidden Valley. Great loop and fun day.

Pierre and I started from a parking spot far south of Muddy Peak, and went up Lovell Canyon. I've heard that recent changes in the wilderness boundary make the hike about 2 miles longer, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem -- it would then be 12-14 miles RT. The Lovell Canyon part is quite spectacular.

Tracy20-mile route hiked; began at Color Rock Quarry & ended on North Shore Road in Lake Mead NRA  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 17, 1998

Tracy

Dave McKean, Dave Frey and I led some 14 & 15-year old scouts (Brent Davies, David Cowan, Steve Mounteer, Nick Reed, and Clin Twitchell) on a 20-mile hike from Color Rock Quarry up and over the westerly saddle of the two saddles on the ridge line separating Lovell Canyon from Hidden Valley. All of us except Nick summited the Muddy Mountains highpoint which is due west of Muddy Peak (and 44 feet higher in elevation). We saved climbing Muddy Peak for another day. We then continued south down Lovell Wash (through Anniversary Narrows) and met our shuttle ride back to Henderson at the junction of Lovell Wash and North Shore Road within Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
