trexkerryBefore Telescope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2015
Took my 2wd up to Thorndike Campground, was a bit steep and I was nervous driving above Charcoal Kilns but if my 2wd can make it than anyone's can. Didn't push my luck going further. Hiked up the service road to Rogers, then up and over Bennett before heading on to Telescope, then took the trail back down to Mahogany campground and the road back to the car.

Squatted Bennett and Rogers on the way back from Telescope. Having 50mph winds knock us down and some required crawling made these two peaks waaaay more interesting than they ordinarily would be.

w/ Telescope. Bennett gives a great view of Telescope, and the hike from Rogers down to Mahogany Flat is very pleasant.

WOLFrisingThe other two  Sucess!


Fall 2012

Got my first look at this pair when doing Telescope with Caz and Ang my first week in Death Valley. I came back the next week to knock these two out. I parked at Mahogony Flats and took the service road to Rogers' summit, there I was greeted by a bobcat and a bunch of concrete. I hit Bennet from the saddle and took the telescope trail back to the car.

A couple of nice diversions from Telescope on the way back to Mahogany Flat. The views of Telescope from Bennett are pretty cool.

Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2012


I hiked up to the top of Bennett on the way back from Telescope, but it was getting dark by the time I neared the base of Rogers, so I skipped it (late midday start, and the snow would not have been fun coming down the service road in the dark after long hikes/runs for the past 6 days in a row)...maybe next time I'm nearby; the views would be nice and easily attainable.

After an ascent of Telescope...this peak is a joke with all the junk on top but it's higher than Bennett!

Rogers and Bennit are sort of lame peaks compared to Telescope but they do make for a good add-on.

To paraphrase Mallory: '...it's there, so ya might as well do it.' Good view of Telescope.

Gratuitously tagged on the way back from Telescope. Up and over Bennett - Up Rogers from Arcane Meadows then down the E ridge to rejoin my party on the telescope trail.

Less impressive than Telescope, but great views nonetheless. We could clearly see the Sierra crest and snow on top of Mt. Charleston to the east.

Nothing particularly redeeming about either of these peaks.
Bagged both on the return leg from Telescope.

Pics and commentary here.

DeanRogers first...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2010


I went up the service road to the top of Rogers, then over to Telescope and up Bennett on the way out. I wish I'd gone back up to the service road on Rogers to finish the descent out as the regular trail seemed to go on forever on the way out. I had perfect weather conditions but I saw no one else on the mountain.
