First 13er  Sucess!

Buddy and I overnighted at Queen Mine and were on the trail at 05:10. Followed a good track from Everytrail, which came in handy as general bearing through the scree and rock. Warm weather and very little snow - no special gear required.

From Queen Mine Saddle  Sucess!

Perfect climb for Memorial Day weekend. Snow was melted out enough so as not to need any special gear, though getting around the gendarme just before the summit was a bit tricky with icy snow bordering it on both sides (I'm sure it's simple without the snow). Beautiful day and fun hike!

Great climb!  Sucess!

I camped with two friends of mine who were to attempt to summit with me, but by the time we hit 10,500' they were in serious distress from altitude and needed to head back to camp. I summited alone, the trip was very hard in the soft scree that sapped my strength on every step but it was fantastic! Expected rain so I did not spend the extra time to go to Montgomery Peak and I regret that in hindsight.

Hardest Hike EVER  Sucess!

Beautiful terrain, but for a novice like me, it was hard!

Tough one!  Sucess!

Really enjoyed the hike! Only saw a couple other hikers. Woken up by wild horses in the middle of the night. Very cool. Climbed with mebo1126.

Re: good hike

Nice work! I am heading there in late December. How much snow was on the ground when you went? Any idea where to find the most recent condition reports or road closures?

good hike  Sucess!

7.5h hike, just follow the trail and you'll be fine, via Trail Canyon Route which I'd recommend a 2WD SUV. The hard part is to gain the ridge and once you did that, it's 1.5h to the summit for me.

Re: # 23

Hey man, is the queen mine trail drivable with a 2WD SUV? (only to the 2WD trailhead), I'll be there on Oct 26th, thanks!

# 23  Sucess!

Via Queen Mine 4wd TH. Horses, deer on the trail. Little snow from the saddle to the summit. Bluebird day.

HP #17  Sucess!

Went the Queen Mine route. Beautiful cool sunny day and not too many people. Saw about a dozen wild horses on the trail on the way back to my car.

HP # 35  Sucess!

Climbed via the Queen Mine. My friend's Toyota Corolla couldn't make it to the mine so we ditched it along the way and walked up to Kennedy point, camped there and climbed it the next day. I thought the scree wasn't as bad as advertised but the scrambling was worse than I had thought. Maybe I got off route for that last section. Perfect weather and a great hike, it's a really cool mountain in it's own way.

NV Highpoint  Sucess!

Pretty hot climb in August. Nice views of a big chunk of central Nevada and the eastern Sierras.

2 Peaks, 2 States  Sucess!

Tagged Boundary and Montgomery with Kathy and John on a perfectly gorgeous day! Very easy to navigate although you see "goat" trails everywhere, just pick your line. I found that Montgomery was much more satisfying than Boundary but it was pretty cool to hit the NV high point. Great day!


Ruvicha - Aug 20, 2012 7:59 pm Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2012

Got it!  Sucess!

Third highpoint this year (Mt. Elbert in Colorado a week earlier, Guadalupe Peak in Texas in March). See Ambret's trip report.

Queen Mine Route  Sucess!

Got an early start and summitted with hiking buddies Ruvicha and Brian just as the weather was beginning to turn sketchy.

Queen's Mine Route  Sucess!

Not denied this time, finally tagged State HP #14 with a cool group of compadres - one planned, met 3 more. Trail/route is very easy to follow and is only a slippery slog part of the way. If you're hating the scree follow the rocky ridge direct from 12,200' to 12,600' for some easy class 3/class 2 boulder climbing. Only damper on the day was my wonderful head cold and the wind.

Fun and Easy  Sucess!

Hiked to the saddle and camped then hiked to the top and out the 2nd day. It was really cold, windy and snowy, but a lot of fun. 2nd state highest peak I did.
