Approach

The West side of the peak can be approcahed from Rockhouse Canyon Road.

Route Description

A walk east accross Clark Valley leads to some foothills and eventually a rib leading to a saddle between Rabbit and Villager. This is, perhaps the shortest route to the summit, though very steep in places.

Essential Gear

This is a long day hike. Since a good time to do it is in the winter or early spring, days are short and a headlamp can be usefull for crossing the last few miles to the car, accross Clark Valley in the dark. A GPS unit for recording the position of your car helps to find it in the dark, too!
