While making my ascent to Charleston Peak I debated making the detour to Mummy Mountain. I was very glad I did and it was well worth the extra effort. The route though the notch to the summit plateau was awesome with mixed snow and ice. Great views from up top in all directions.

A Spring Mountains monarch, with a couple of decent scrambling options once you ascend the scree slope from the North Loop trail. This is a great one to rope in as part of a three- or four-peak loop, along with Charleston, Griffith, Harris or Fletcher.

Snow conditions in Lee Canyon in the morning weren't too bad (not too much postholing) but we sunk in up to our waists on the way down in the afternoon. Mummy Mountain was almost completely free of snow except for the area where you go through the cliffs to the summit plateau. There was some ice and snow there, but it did not make it any more difficult. No crampons needed.

3rd signature in the summit registry for 2013.

No snow left on the south facing scree slope, one small patch up on the ridge.

This was the first of three ascents in 2012, each from a different route. I'm not sure why, but I have an affinity for Mummy Mountain, and will be doing it again.

It was a very hot day in the valley but much cooler in the Spring Mountains. The route is pretty staight forward but you may be pulling out your map and questioning things along the way. The long scree slope up is a pain but it is not as bad coming down as you may think. I was up in less than 3 hours and that was just a steady pace, not fast. Great day and was back at the pool by afternoon.

Startling that there was no snow, not even piled on the north side below the cliffs, so early in the season. Enjoyed seeing Harlan up top after a couple of decades. First time up was 9-27-08, with both Rusty and Abby; how Rusty made it up the chute is beyond me. Big heart in that dog. Storm clouds started to move in while we were up top and we hurried down in the rain. Other times have been with only Abby: 6-20-10, 7-15-11 and this one. Special place up there.

South loop to Griffith and Charleston. Took the North loop trail on the way down and went up Mummy Mountain. This was first ever real scrambling. Lots of fun, but tiring towards the end of my hike.

There were lots of people parked at Trail Canyon trailhead today, so I expected a crowd on top -- instead, I was surprised that I'm only the second person in 2012. It's early yet, though. Still quite a bit of hard, icy snow paths along the base of the cliffs, so route finding was a bit of a challenge at times. Beautiful on top, glad to have finally made it up.

Took us 3 attempts but we finally reached the top. The North Loop trail is so scenic and from the scree slope forward the hike gets very interesting.

Tried once a long time ago but my friend gave up so I had to head down with him. This time I went up on the other side, it was much easier. This was the first peak of a 3-peak day with the LVMC training for Rainier.

Went up the scree to the tummy. If you love scree, do it. It was the final peak of 4 that day including Harris, Griffith, and Charleston.

This was one of my favorite outings of the year to date. Mojavebobcat and I climbed the standard route, electing to do the class 2 chute to the summit. The route was snow-free, save for a few patches along the ridge above the North loop trail. While it was 105 degrees down in Las Vegas, we enjoyed a summit temperature of 63 degrees and great views that extended all the way to Langley/Whitney, 145 miles away. The view northeast was the most obscured by haze, presumably due to the prevailing airflow in the Las Vegas Valley. Overall, another great day touring the Desert Peaks Section mountains.

Did this one first, then Charleston, then Griffith. Thee scree slope was more fun coming down then going up. Look for the tree with a "M" on it, the trail is easy to follow after climbing the scree.

Did the three peak loop, with Mummy last. Doing the scree slog up onto the ridge late in the day was torture. The use trail from there to the summit was pretty apparent.
Great day with plenty of sunshine and good fall colors.
