Followed the trail mostly, but scrambled up the actual summit after that ridge from Little Ubehebe Peak. Made it!

Very nice hike. Beautiful day in Death Valley in January. I was all alone on the hike starting at 7:30 AM and finishing by 11 AM. Great views all the way. I got a little off trail after the saddle but refound the trail after climbing straight up the mountain for a bit. I was disappointed because The Racetrack was muddy and I couldn't go out to search for "moving rocks" but that was my only disappointment for the day.

Loved this climb. Drove in on Thanksgiving Day and enjoyed a MRE for dinner. Hiked out to the Grandstands and surmounted that. Cold night at the parking lot but up early to take down Ubehebe the next morning. Spectacular views of the Racetrack and the Saline Valley. The low Class 3 scramble up the ridgeline made this climb worth it. Very easy route to the top, up and down in three hours.

Wonderful company, cool views and fun scrambling made this a great way to start 2004. Thanks to Mike and Kathleen for the inspiration.

Drove up from the Saline Valley Road via the Lippincott Mine Road. Camped at the lower Lippincott Mine and drove to the trailhead the next morning. I was able to follow a fairly well defined use trail to climber's right of the ridge leading to the summit from the saddle between Ubehebe and Little Ubehebe. It was quite an adventure just getting to the trailhead and the hike made the trip all the more worthwhile. Amazing views on top from the White Mountains to the Inyo Mountains down to the Panamints, not to mention the Saline and Racetrack Valleys.

Did this with Lara. Started from the car at a not-quite-alpine 11.47. Beautiful day & weather. Met a couple halfway up, one of whom was from Denver. The intimidating-looking traverse from the north peak was quite enjoyable, with easy routefinding, fun scrambling, & fairly good rock!



Summited @ 14.10. Lingered at the top for awhile, enjoying a brew, lunch, & a smoke. Amazing views up top, & a very serene summit. These two cool-looking trekker athlete guys caught us at the summit before flying back down. At least they took our summit photo.



Left the top @ 15.21, getting most of the way down before darkness overtook us. Got back to the car @ 17.47. Great day on a nice peak!
