tbrutonwindy, snowy Wildrose  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 7, 2017
I swung through Death Valley hoping to do a solo trip up Telescope, but the ranger at Furnace Creek strongly cautioned me not to do it without an ice axe, which I didn't have. He also warned that it would be near impossible to drive up to anywhere close to the trailhead, including the Charcoal Kilns.

As it turned out, there was little to no ice on the road and driving to the kilns in my sedan was no problem at all. I ran up Wildrose, wearing microspikes for the final mile or so as it was mostly packed snow and ice. The top was super windy and socked in with fog, but it was still a nice climb! Round trip 2.25 hours.

sylvainalarieChange in plans due to snow...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2015


Solo trip to Death Valley National Park for New Year's 2015. Intent was to hike Telescope Peak, but given the time of year road was not accessible to Mahogony Flats campground and trialhead. Spent time trying to get up the road with another group in a van. After much pushing and shoveling, we abandoned the idea of Telescope, turned the cars around, and opted for Wildrose Peak. Somewhat of a late start, but it's not too long a hike. Daylight quite short on New Year's day. Great way to start the year!!

Hiked with Greg K. This is one of the more boring peaks I've done in Death Valley. But I understand it's popularity. The views are good and the trail is easy.

Still patches of snow here and there on the trail, but not problematic. Sunny beautiful day, 58 degrees at Charcoal Kilns at start of day, hiked up in short sleeves, only needing a coat while enjoying the summit. Awesome views!

Enjoyable hike from the charcoal kilns with my son. Lots of Germans in the summit log (good on 'em!), steep sections were a definite workout. Sierra views were sadly obscured by haze.

Dayhike with my girlfriend on a warm March day. I especially loved the views west to the snow covered high sierra. Inyo County is the best.

A quick trip to the Panamints to see what the roads and snow levels were like.

A nice peak with a nice view.

Nice hike that provides beautiful summit views into Death Valley and toward the Sierra Nevada range. This was the warm-up hike on the way from Las Vegas to Lone Pine, CA before a Mount Whitney summit hike two days later.

My friend from Colorado and I hiked this pretty quickly before heading back home after climbing Telescope the day before.

Fall 2012

Did this one solo. Nice classic National Park hike. Long meandering trail through forest, leading way for the great views above treeline. Had more fun here than on Telescope. Highly recommended!

Did this as a warmup for Telescope. Not a lot of people head out to this area, but both peaks are excellent.

dabaileyawesome hike. great views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2011


snowing pretty good when we got to the parking lot so everyone put on tons of layers. blue skies within 30 minutes so we all took off those layers. great views off both sides of the mountain throughout the entire hike. cold and windy at the top, but great temps otherwise. apparently it was unseasonably cold for the time of year. a half dozen of inches of snow most of the way up.

highly recommended if you're in the area.
