Very Fun!  Sucess!

Excellent climb from the Lovell Canyon side. Loved the "obstacle course" feel of the route across the sandstone. Trip Report

Beautiful Mountain  Sucess!

A repeat of last April's trip, i.e., up Pine Creek to the end, then up the slabs and ledges to the saddle before the crack up. Great trip for a New Year's Day.

Fun route, tough road  Sucess!

Drove up Rocky Gap from RRNCA. Great hike, it's a shame someone painted those black marks but they do help you in a couple places. The infamous crack near the top isn't that bad. The hike itself is much easier than Wilson, which I did two weeks ago. That's a good thing, since the road is very tough to drive on. I have an Xterra Pro 4-x, and though it handled the road like a champ, it was too nerve-wracking for me.

I met a nice couple who came up via Pine Creek. They said the route was easy and well-cairned, so maybe I'll do that next time.

Via Pine Creek  Sucess!

All the way to the back of Pine Creek, then right up the sandstone to the base of the infamous Bridge Mountain crack, then up the standard route from there. We returned via the Rocky Gap Summit, down the road to the car shuttle at Willow Springs. 13 miles with a group from LVMC.

Once Again!  Sucess!

This time I took Lorraine along. It was painfully windy, with gusts that could cause one to lose balance on some of the sketchy exposed portions. I made it to the summit, but nearly had my head blown off by the wind. On the way back, I took a side trip to the summit of North Peak.

Eye Surgery  Sucess!

I had some minor eye surgery scheduled for 4:15 p.m., so I took the day off and decided to climb Bridge Mountain before hand. I parked part way up Rocky Gap Road and hiked about a mile up the road to where the use trail begins its ascent to the escarpment. I had great weather, much fun on the sandstone climbs, and made it back to my car in six hours and ten minutes for the 9.6 mile trip. I was in the doctor's office by 4:05! What a beautiful day.

From Lovell Canyon  Sucess!

Parked partway up the side road, where it crosses the wash. A fun, leisurely start to the 2013 season. Trip report.

Classic  Sucess!

Hiked from Willow Springs Picnic area up Rocky Gap rd and then up a trail to the backside. The wind was powerful but the views are amazing. Some primitive campfire rings were along the way.

via Red Rock Summit  Sucess!

My favorite southern Nevada scramble.

Nice clear winter day. Bit of snow on the North Peak ridge but the ascent slope of Bridge was dry.
Pics/commentary are here.

Edit: Did it again in April with some cooworkers. Better weather, but windy.

Perfect May Day  Sucess!

I joined a couple of friends for the roller coaster route from Red Rock Summit. We had a great time and enjoyed a perfect overcast May day with temps in the 70s.
