missymtngirlEasy Hike Overall, but some sections of the hike were challenging  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2010


Did this hike over Memorial Day Weekend! It was a perfect hike to do because we only saw 7 other groups of people on the mountain the whole day. The views past the 3 mile mark are awesome. This would be a wonderful hike to do at sunset. The weather was nice and cool with no snow at the top. Lots of shade along the way.

Started early in the morning. Although it was summer, we were mostly in the shade, being on the western side for most of the hike. Nice views of the valley once you reach the ridge.

Day Hiker

After the first mile, I left the trail since it was buried in snow anyway. The cross-country route worked well, and there was still plenty of snow to hate on the way up but enjoy on the way down.

I was also up there several years ago, possibly 1999. I will have to dig up photos (film - grrrrrrr!) to get the date.

Cold and windy day in the desert. Storm front was moving through and it snowed later. Nobody else hiking on this day.

Did Telescope the previous day so we were a little tired, but still managed to get up and down in 3 hours. Great hike and great weather this time of year.

The road to telescope was closed so we climbed wildrose instead. Awesome view well worth the walk.

Hiked from the end of the paved part of Wildrose Canyon road to the kilns (added another 4.5 miles in and out) and up to the peak. Great views from the top. Very few patches of snow on the saddle before the final ascent. Cold winds on top.

TripoliRickSnow blocking the road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 7, 1974


When snow blocked the way past the kilns, I decided to hike up Wildrose as an alternative. Took the better part of the day. Almost got stuck when I went to Skido when I couldn't get traction on the ice covered steep road out. I spent an hour or more throwing rocks and gravel on the ice surface, then easily drove up and out (a lesson I've used many times since).

A quick buzz up the trail to the top, with wonderful views when I gained the ridge. Good weather that day, with no snow on Wildrose, although Telescope was blanketed. A good warm-up in Death Valley.

A relatively easy hike with rewarding views. October is a great time to be in Death Valley.
