Overview

This unnamed peak, known as Point 3753 on the USGS topo map, is one of the smaller peaks in the area surrounding Las Vegas, but don't let that discourage you from attempting to tag it's summit. It is slightly taller than it's neighbor, the heavily antennaed Point 3358, but pales in comparison to it's 5,092 foot neighbor, Black Mountain.

The mountain is volcanic in origin and has no direct trail to the top. If you are coming from N. Stephanie, you can ascend to the top of the first false summit via a small wash/canyon that runs down the side of the mountain. This route is easy scrambling and is protected from the wind.

 
Wash
The small wash that you may use to ascend to the false summit. It starts at the end of Viento Puntero Dr., just off of Horizon Ridge.


Once you ascend to the first false summit, it is an easy scramble down to a small saddle and up to the actual summit, which is plainly marked by a weather station and solar panel.

While this summit can be climbed year round, it would be brutally hot to do so between late spring and early fall, so late fall throughout winter would be the best time to climb this one.

Getting There

This peak is easily viewable from just about anywhere in the Southern Las Vegas area in and around Henderson. It is also notable due to the heavily antennaed Peak 3358 which lies about 1 mile to the NE.

To get there from Henderson/LV, exit from 215 at Stephanie St. which you can then take to Horizon Ridge which will then lead you to Viento Puntero Dr. Unfortunately, parking is hard to find so you may have to park on the street in a residential area. The "trailhead" starts at the end of Viento Puntero and heads up and directly to the bottom of the wash, which you can follow to the first false summit.

Red Tape

There is a lot of development in the area, so the area around the "trailhead" will constantly be changing as development moves up the mountain.

Between Points 3358 and 3753 is an active construction site. I'm not sure how they feel about trespassers, but it would probably be best to avoid that area. I've seen many other users (off-roaders and hikers) using the construction-made roads, but just to be on the safe side I would avoid confrontation.
