Redstone Peak, unofficially named, is one of the highest peaks in the Lake Mead area. It resides in the Black Mountains within Lake Mead NRA. Redstone Peak offers some of the best views of the Lake Mead area. From the summit panoramas that are beyond the imagination are seen in all directions. There are many other unnamed peaks that can be enjoyed from Redstone. East Redstone, another unofficially named peak, is just to the east, northeast of its summit. To the northeast of East Redstone you could scramble over to another locally named peak, Big (Tall) Cairn Peak.
Redstone Peak is best climbed from October-May. The summer months are extremely hot at the lower elevations. If you do this in the summer do it early in the day and have lots of water.
