Still not working. Still over 5,000 miles from White Mountain Peak. Try it a couple more times, and check the distances link to see if it worked. You still have °E for the longitude on the front page. That shouldn't be there. It should be °W. It can be a pain in the butt, I guess, but better that the info be correct.

Nice page.



The peak could also be done in spring or winter, but expect a long hike 8000+ feet up from the desert floor below or a relentless slog along the unplowed (and long) dirt road. Why bother?



"Cause its good excersize and challenging?



Are you still doing the Grand Teton this summer?

hey--
I just saw this while poking around SP. (your response doesn't turn up on my profile for some reason... I guess it got lost in the transition). I had some kind of flu a few weeks ago that laid me up for a while... before that hit, I spent a couple of weekends ice climbing in LVC, and got out to Tahoe one day for Jeff Davis (awesome!) and a couple of other peaks. so yeah, not a lot of peaks lately.

Right now, I'm just itching to get back to the High Sierra. Spring can't come quickly enough for me.

Nice basic page, but so is Sheep Mountain. The "hill" east of Sheep Mountain and west of the road is known as Limestone Peak. Its just under 12,000 ft. This is a great dayhike when combined with Piute Mtn and Limestone Peak. About a 4-5 hr 'lazy' round trip hike.

Limestone Peak, eh? Any idea of the origin of this name? I've never heard it referred to as such.

Geez, I gotta look at my e-mail more often!

"Limestone Peak" was the name on the register box in the cairn on the summit. It was placed there by the Sierra Club's Desert Peaks Section, so they might be able to help ID the proper name. While the old USGS map I was using had no name for it whatsoever, the peak does have an unusual amount of limestone on its flanks compared to nearby Sheep Mtn and Piute Mtn.

Cheers
