trexkerryAfternoon fun  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014
Got started after lunch, hadn't done any research ahead of time and messed up twice - first I accidentally ascended the higher Thunder Mountain (thankful that happened as I didn't realize the named summit was lower), then on the return I went up to the top of the class 3 ridge near Martins Point, only to find out later that the named Martins Point was lower and an easy walk away. Why can't the high points be the named summits? Trip report is HERE.

After getting to the campground the night before we learned that shoes had been left at home, having chosen the campsite specifically so that we could do this hike though my not so outdoorsy girlfriend (now wife) agreed to do the hike in flipflops. Still managed to summit both the true highpoint and the namesake point. before heading home to Reno.

Parked at Kirkwood and headed straight up the right side of the the bunny lifts towards Martin Point before they opened up. Great weather and views. Took ice ax and crampons but the grip on the snowshoes was just enough.

Dennis Poulin and I did this after camping in our vehicles at the trailhead. Still lots of snow when we were up there. Then we went on to pick off Granite Chief when it was considered the cohp of Placer county.

Led a group of 10 from Reno to the summit. Several snow crossings were required, but overall the mountain is losing snow fast and did not pose a serious challenge. Hiked Thimble Peak afterwards.
