Route Climbed: South Rim Loop Date Climbed: May 2002  Sucess!

cool side trip off the loop to make for an exciting, exhausting 17 mile tour of the Chisos Mountains. Or this makes a good, short destination hike in itelf. There is a little bit of slightly exposed class 2+ scrambling at the very very end, but you must do it to get any kind of view. The summit is the highest point in Big Bend. I've been up here a couple of times and there always seems to be about a million ladybugs. This whole area is one of the coolest hikes in Texas!

Y2K didn't stop us from the top! It was a great place to ride out the unrealized collapse of Western society. Beautiful day.

Good views and good conversation with a group of funky German tourists en route from Mexico to who knows where.

Nice hike. Too bad there was a lot of flies at the top that drove you off the top quickly. Nice day. Lot of people.

Sweet hike, with a tiny bit of exposed scrambling. Too bad there was nothing to see but antennas because of the fog and the rain:(

A great hike followed by a fun summit scramble. The only downer.......fog and overcast prevented a view. Otherwise....a great day!

My first Chisos Summit (1st Texas Summit for that matter). I loved it. Such a unique place. A great hike with great friends ....not a bad way to spend an afternoon!

This is a nice dayhike if you are in the area and the views from the top are fantastic. On one trip the clouds were passing through us on the summit before rushing down over the edge into the Chisos Basin.

Great hike up. Be aware that the last 30 feet or so

rquire a scramble. Well worth the time, the views were

great both ways.

I watched the sun go down from atop Emory Peak on a beautiful, clear December evening. It was perhaps the most incredible sunset I had ever seen, mixed with the expansive views south into Mexico. Emory Peak is probably not a destination in itself, but it is certainly an excellent side trip off of the Chisos Mountain/South Rim trail.

Enjoyable, considering that I was going to school in flat Houston at the time.

I stayed in one of the "Lodge Units" the night before with two friends and a set of parents -- not much fun. The next day we hiked up Emory Peak. It was a pleasant hike to the summit. The temperature was probably in the 40s and the wind was howling.
