We two souls were the only ones on this trail all day. A butterfly landed on my arm and didn't want to leave. The Joshua tree forest was fascinating. Great place to get to know the Preserve.

Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2016


This time with Lorraine. She had some trouble with the step across or stem crack, but was able to drop into it and climb from there to the top. From here we went "across the street" to climb Kessler Peak.

Climbed all over this peak and then ran up to the "top" of Cima just for grins. Good fun rock and lots of different routes to be found.

No, I don't do class 5, so I didn't go up on the summit blocks. This was my 3rd little climb of the day, after Amboy Crater and Kelso sand dunes (by far the hardest). Just an easy little walk up to the end of the trail to wind up my post law school week in the desert.

A fun little place. Part of a 4 day visit to the Mojave National Preserve. Hiked up this peak right around sunset - and camped at the nearby Sunset roadside camping area.

Had a day to kill the Victorville area, so I headed into the preserve. Pleasant day, nice and cool, not too windy. Enjoyable approach walk and fun scrambling, excellent solitude.

Scrambled up all three summits, just to be sure I was getting the best view.

ShinLVCentral and South summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 9, 2010


Climbed Teutonia peak on the way back from Kelso Dunes hike.
This hike is very short but there are some class 3-4 spot near the peak. (only 20-40 ft)
I made Central Peak and found the register but I didn't sign since the can and book was in bad shape and didn't want to break it. Somebody needs to bring new register box and book.
I found desert fox near the South peak. Its always fun to see any animals in the desert.

First of a few on a great Thanksgiving weekend in the Mojave. Fun scrambling to all three summits. Put my hand in a cactus on one of them.

South and central summits. Love the cheeky summit register entries. Hilarious ! And love the area in general. Great place to spend a day being low key and mellow.

Started at the trailhead at around 2pm. The weather had been horrible all day long and we could see snow on Teutonia. Easy hike to the ridge. We had some issue figuring out what was the true summit block. We climbed the central summit block thinking that was the summit and the looked down the ridge and thought those were the high points. Because of that, we didn't spend much time on top and went back down. The snow on the rock made for sketchy scrambling, but that just made it more interesting.

I opted not to temporarily abandon my 2 dogs to tag the highpoint. The ease of this hike was a pleasure on a clear day with many snow patches and several inches of snow cover near the peaks. This is a good one for hitting before or after other peaks in the area the same day. It would also be good with the family, for a rest day, or to just enjoy the views, scrambles and desert plants.

Tom Scott & I visited on our way out to Castle (Dove). Walked out in about 6" to 8" of snow. Did the north summit first, then shuffled through deeper snow over to the middle and south summits. Quite the experience to be surrounded by all the joshua trees covered in snow!

RedwicOne Word: HOT!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2006


A friend and I were driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the day prior to hiking with an additional friend up Charleston Peak (Nevada), when we decided to do some hiking in the Mojave National Preserve while en route. Teutonia Peak presented a wonderful opportunity to see the desert in all its glory. The walk through the desert had its rewards, as did the scramble near the summit. Many beautiful desert wildflowers, but it was HOT during our hike. We saw a few desert lizards, but at least there were no encounters with rattlesnakes while we were there. This area was my first encounter with Joshua Trees, which I think are very cool.

Very rewarding walk with some scrambling. This area has the greatest forest of Joshua trees I've ever seen -- nowhere else comes close. Cima Dome is also a must-see.

So I walked up Teutonia for the heck of it. Fun scrambling at the top.
