calipidderSunset hike  Sucess!
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.

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.

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!

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).

Third consecutive day of climbing. Did Castle Dome two days prior and Mt. Shasta the day before. Peaked in 1:37 without trying hard and round trip in 2:45 running down to make an earlier cave tour. Would be a nice practice hike for something larger.

Great climb. Some snow on the lower parts of the trail, but overall beautiful and fairly easy hike up.

PeanutAwesome Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2009
Could not have asked for better weather. Incredible views that day and, as a first time climber, found the last mile or so very challenging as I was not expecting it to be so steep. Met Jim Johnson of Fernley hiking to the top for his 83rd birthday. Great achievement! The rest of his family was there as well. This was the first year he had not climbed a 14er because his children had begged him not to - I love it!
