After Mt. Tipton in the morning. This was a really nice climb with great views from the summit. Pretty steep in places on the use trail.

With Scott Peavy. We followed the "standard" DPS route that meets the ridge about a quarter-mile southeast of the summit. The cairns and use-path helped, and we commented that whoever put it in must have done it with a lot of trial and error. We benefited as it took us less than 5 hours for the whole round trip.

This was a mountain that made you earn it and thanks to Eric Kassan (4th summit) and Tracy Foutz for their great companionship. It was a great day.

We had made two other attempts earlier in the year, but got bogged down in the crags and ravines by heading up towards the ridge line too soon. This time I found a way and ultimately found the use trail that leads to the summit. Easy to follow once you know where it is!

Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2012


We made it to the top via the large ravine on the north side of the mountain. It was more difficult than we had expected but well worth the extra effort. Great scramble with some easy to moderate rock climbing! After some minor setbacks and some additional exploring we made it to the top in about 4 hours.

This time with a wonderful of group of hikers met through Terri. Lots of fun, and Abby made it over the last bit of climbing with the help of her 2-legged friends. Lots of problems with cholla in her fur lower down. First time was with David S. on January 29, 2011, and Abby didn't make it over the hump that time; we took turns summiting and staying with her. The very steep descent is slow for me.

Hiked the standard route from Christmas Tree Pass. It was easy to follow a nice trail left by a large group of DPS'ers who left lots of cairns to mark the way.

Great hike! Took a few detours in the beginning but eventually ran into the trail. I had my dog Charlie, aka Mountain Pug, with me. He made it all the way to the top by himself except for a few parts I had to lift him up. He took a long nap on the top and had to ride in the backpack for the way down. Great Day!

Very cool peak. Saw another group of 3 people and a dog. Very fun and I loved the basin before the summit. It was pretty chilly with a strong wind, but very awesome!

First time we went up a hairy ridge, down a ravine on SE -- very brushy.

On Feb 23/08, went up the remote north peak -- last register entry was from over 3 years ago. I was perhaps the 8th person to sign in.

I climbed on Spirit Mountain in August 2005. The temperature was about 110 degree, and it was one of the best mountain experience in my life (especially , that I come from cold country - Poland:) )

Very enjoyable hike amongst some beautiful granite formations. I have done it twice and both times it was very windy. Maybe someday I'll get to do it on a calm day. Our photos are here: Spirit Peak hike
