DigglerBeautiful oasis in the desert!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2012


Finally made it to this special place. Truly an oasis. Beautiful alpine zone miles above the desert. Standard hike was chill & fun. Did it with Faith. 5:20 c2c. Would like to check out caves if I make it back here. A winter ascent would be cool, too.

Went up the standard trail. Tagged Bald Mountain on the way down. Went on to climb North Schell in the afternoon for 2 ultra prominence peaks in one day.

Hit Wheeler, Jeff Davis, and Bald Mountain in the same day. It was spectacular! Great snow conditions, and great audiobook!

The views were nice, although more dry than I expected for December. No snow shoes needed for the climb when we went nor an ice axe.

Date Climbed: Dec 16, 2011


The roads was closed so we had to start at upper Lehman Campground. The following morning at our camp my thermometer was reading 0 degrees Fahrenheit. There was a lot of wind and spindrift on the upper ridge.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2011


Started up about 3 pm. Spent some time on the summit and hiked back down to an amazing sunset. Clicked on the headlamp for the last 1/4 mile. Hiking it this way made for a private summit. Love it.

Beautiful scenery on the hike up, amazing views from the top. A little breezy on the ridgeline but not too bad. Definitely worth the trip.

cjwhatWindy walk up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2011


People were turning around at the ridge below the final buttress due to high winds ... and the wind did rock! I left Rico at the base of that ridge and ascended the the buttress on the north side; which was somewhat sheltered. It took 3 hours and 15 minutes from the trailhead to the top.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2011


We were trying to go for Jeff Davis via the Wheeler trail. Too much wind that day and we would have been in it for the entire Wheeler to Jeff Davis traverse. The rangers are recommending snow shoes, but you don't really need them now.

Freaking windy up high, almost blow-you-over windy. NV should really give Boundary to CA and make this its highest peak -- it's much more interesting and appropriate.

It was a fun trip about 10 years ago. It's worth going out there!

weeds19Lots of snow still  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2011


I was greeted at the TH by giant mounds of snow, so I decided to go with pants and boots versus my anticipated shorts and running shoes. It turns out that most of the trail is snow free and I only had to negotiate snow for a few 50 yd sections on the ascent. The bluebird day made for a beautiful summit experience!

Great Basin was always a mysterious NP, but living in Vegas and being a bit worn on the Spring Mountains, I drove to the isolated park. Wheeler is the flagship mountain and can be extremely windy (It was when I was there). People unprepared for the wind chill turned back shortly after treeline. There are wind shelters along the way that are fun to rest at and build upon. If you're on the Lonliest Highway in America, take time to ramble up this peak (& check out the caves too).

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2010


Started at 0600 on the summit about 0900, spent a lot of time taking pictures, then a nice hike down. Virtually no wind, and a nice clear sunny day. Over the three day weekend 29 miles and a gain of 9500 ft!
