Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2013
|A fun climb, especially the summit ridge line. Although I didn't pick up any, Lorraine flicked off three ticks during the course of the climb. In February, no less.|

|This peak is an excellent scramble with great views from the summit. Laid out below me to the northeast was the town of Pahrump, with snow-capped Charleston Peak behind it in the distance. Eagle Mountain (another great scramble) appears as a lone island in the desert to the northwest. Total of about 8 miles and 3,350 feet vertical from the pullout on the highway. Of course, after the hike, I had to drive to the nearby town of Shoshone for dinner at the Crowbar.|
P.S. -Don't forget to pose for a photo with the plywood wedding couple at the end of the dirt road. Unfortunately, the groom had already lost his head by the day I was there.

|Climbed with the Siberian and the Persian.|
The route description here is good. I wouild add that the two upper "notches" are really defined by small rock (~10') protuberances on the left side, as one ascends, and the "saddle" is more of a quasi-level point on the ridge. The route is essentially class 2, with the loose chute as the most dangerous part ("dangerous" as in "getting a rock knocked on your head").
We also just wanted to stay on top for a long time.

|The 3400 feet of gain went very quickly - not sloggy in the slightest (unusual for a desert peak with that kind of gain). Didn't wanna leave the summit. Curious birds kept doing surprisingly close fly-bys, checking me out.|
It's really hard to articulate what made this peak so enjoyable. Just a true desert mountain, I guess - rugged as hell and beautiful.
