ApeakhikernvWow! Thanks for the ducks!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2015
We hiked Ruby Dome today. The trail was marked with clear ducks all the way to the top via the west ridge! It was perfect and easy to follow. Thanks to whoever put in all that effort to mark the route!

michael_hashleyKind of difficult but definitely worth it!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2015


Backpacked to Griswold Lake with 3 buddies, started our ascent for Ruby Dome at 9 in the morning. Reached the chute where the cairns were nonexistent, but the trail before the top of the ridge was pretty well worn. Used the chute on the west ridge. Lovely climb and great visibility up at the top. There was a lone jar with a small notebook in it that we signed. A little rough on the knees going down.

calebEOCLong time objective finally accomplished  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2014


For anyone that enjoys these big Nevada peaks, this sure seems like the crown jewel. A nice hike up Hennen Canyon in good weather, and nice views of nearby peaks in the Rubies. The weather went to crap the following day dashing our Hole in the Mountain plans, but was ecstatic to have finally summited the Ruby Dome.

Moogie737Seemed more than a county highpoint  Sucess!


Found this COHP more challenging than most, a real boulder fest when dry.

yadahzoemtnWith a Kitty called Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2014


We started at the locked gate a little over a mile from the actual TH. Upon arriving at the TH a stray kitten appeared and took quite a liking to me. He started following me. I thought for sure he would turn around. This little one never gave up. He made it all the way to the summit and back down with me. Everyone we met along the way was in awe of this little fellow. We passed him around on the summit for pictures. He was everyone's hero. I named him Summit.

jdmorehouseRuby Pyramid to the Dome  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2014


A day hike from the private campground's end. First up Pyramid, then over to the Dome. No register on the Pyramid, and only a single sheet of paper in a pill bottle on the other, placed only a week or so before us.

I hiked to Ruby Dome via Griswold Lake, then went over to Ruby Pyramid. Neither peak had a summit register or benchmark. Looks like someone must have stolen them from Ruby Dome.

8/29/2013 Started at the locked gate a mile or so from the actual trailhead. Awesome day and awesome hike. The Ruby Mountains are beautiful and was well worth the drive from S.L. From Ruby Dome I made the quick traverse over to Ruby Pyramid. Did not see one other person the whole hike. From the locked gate I reached the summit in exactly 3 hours and car to car was 6 hr. 12 min.

Went up the west ridge line. Been dreading climbing this for awhile, and really happy it's done! Pretty hard but incredibly rewarding!

Went up a scree chute on the N.end of the Dome and down the S. Ridge. Since it was so close I climbed Ruby Pyramid also.

Part of climbing Ruby Pyramid, Ruby Dome and Lee Peak on a fine summer day, but there was a bit of haze from Nevada wild fires.

All of Northern Nevada was on fire pretty much, so we did this mountain in less than ideal conditions. Climbed with adjacent Ruby Pyramid.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2012


very fun climb in the most scenic Nevada mountain range. I ended up going up the west ridge which involved a little route finding and some minor scrambling. Not much snow left. Very little loose rock to deal with.

Nice traverse. Lee Peak was a bit sketchy, but we avoided most of the snow/ice and Lee was a good bonus peak. Trip Report
