Date Climbed: Dec 12, 2016


Orocopia is a boring mountain with good views of the Salton Sea. Probably our least favorite of this trip. We couldn't understand why this peak is on the DPS list.

Other peaks we did during this trip include; Potosi, Cheyenne, Muddy Mountain, Muddy Peak, Virgin, The Orphan, Silica Dome, Cairn, The Sentinel, East Redstone, Redstone, Mystery Cairn, Vista, Hayford, Clark, McCullough, Spirit, Stepladder, Big Maria, False Maria, Black Butte, Chuckwalla, Pinto, Toro, Santa Rosa, and Thomas.

tdoughtyNice morning's stroll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2013


With out a map or route description, took a circuitous route to the top, snaking up, down and all around. Did get to see a desert tortoise, 8 big horn sheep, and numerous flowers. Followed a more direct route back down, so all in all, not a bad morning's stroll! (BTW, the Prius was a bit challenged to get to the end of the 2WD bit of road....sandy!)

Relatively easy hike after hiking to Mastodon Peak and Eagle Mountains H.P. in the morning. It got a little warm in the afternoon, but not too bad. Great views of the Salton Sea from the summit.

Date Climbed: Mar 26, 2010


Nice day but windy. I followed the north approach except I left the wash below 3,000 ft and climbed over pt 3509. This avoided the 25 ft dry waterfall in the main wash. CA P2k 9/163.

Climbed with Evan Rasmussen, combined with Black Butte in the afternoon. Easy climbing, yucky driving. Trip Report

Carried over on a 3-day trip with Desert Survivors - started from near Sheep Hole Oasis and I believe we came up from Orocopia Canyon then descended into another canyon and finally hiked out cross-country to Chiriaco Summit. Great dryfall scrambling and desert hiking.
