Tombstone Mountain is located in northern California near Lake Shasta. There is no easy way to get to the summit of Tombstone. I chose an approach that used a 4WD road along a ridge line from the north until it ended just west of the summit. This 4WD road would have been impassable except that it had recently been enhanced by one pass of a Cat during the previous year.

Getting to te end of the 4WD road was the easy part. It was one of the worst bushwhack climbs I have ever done. Round trip was only 1.7 miles and gained only 900 feet in elevation, but it took me 3.5 hours to thrash my way to the summit and back down. This was a really miserable climb. If I ever go back, I will try a route from the east. 8/27/2005
