jdmorehouse2nd Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 13, 2016


A late start put me on the mountain with about two hours of headlamp time on the way down. Just as steep as I remembered it!

asmrzCold, snowy ascent
Date Climbed: Apr 1, 2016


My wife Penelope and I hiked the peak from Racetrack Road on freshly fallen snow (3-4 inches) on April 01, 2016. The hike is reasonable by desert standards, much better than Dry mountain.
Wonderful views of Sierra Crest and the Racetrack from near the summit.

colinrBrisk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2016


I enjoyed the steep ascent and far reaching views. Storm clouds rolled over the Sierra and then the Inyos as I sumitted and started down. The accompanying wind made for a chilly end to a major winter heatwave. Sandstorms in northern DV discouraged me from sticking around the general area another day to tag Dry Mtn. I headed south to Furnace Creek area to take in the superbloom, experiencing rare desert rain overnight.

Nice ridge route! Climbed with Heather. We did Dry the day before and Ubehebe the day after. This was my 21st peak on DPS list.

DariaWith 2+ feet of snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2014


Fresh after a major storm, was interesting experience to say the least. Dayhike with Deb.

The landscape was surreal and winter-blasted and the trees looked like art sculptures, completely frozen white with the rare winter like conditions on these peaks.

jdmorehouseUp the north ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2014


I went up the north ridge instead of the south ridge mostly by accident. There is a lot of crappy class 3 or worse rock up higher with lots of loose debris. I came down the "correct" ridge on the return. Some lingering snow in the shaded areas.

DebDV Post-holing!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2014


Daria and I ascended mainly the "trade route" but took an interesting traverse across the north side. We thoroughly enjoyed post-holing knee-deep most of the way to summit. Clouds too low to see much.. thanks a lot DV!

MoapaPkOn way to Ubehebe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2013


I just woke up and walked a bit NE from my tent site. I took a non-standard way straight up the west "face" and came down by the dps route (more-or-less). Back down by noon.

A short but enjoyable walk up from Racetrack Road, enjoyed the route for the exercise. Excellent views of the valley.
