Both summits on a dry winter day Date Climbed: Dec 24, 2011
Snow still hasn't fallen in any quantity in Northwestern Nevada yet, so we took a group of 6 into the cold and hiked to Point 7776. I took a detour on the way up and bagged Beacon Point. Pretty tough day overall, but worth the views for this late in the year, while we still had the opportunity before the snow comes like gangbusters - hopefully soon!
