Late Hike  Sucess!

up Fletcher Peak with Maddie via the North Loop trail. We got a spot at Hilltop Campground around 4 pm and started the hike right after that. Made it to the top around 6 (after a short detour down close to the Mummy's Toes), and walked down in the dark, with a great view of the lights of Vegas.

Beautiful start to summer  Sucess!

Finally had some clear, thunderstorm free, weather so I decided to go up to Fletcher Peak via the North Loop. It could not have been a better day with a few clouds and temperatures in the high 60s. The view of the surrounding peaks, still with snow on them, was phenomenal. There is still snow on the north face of the peak and the trail is still a little wet in some spots.

Bristlecones Abound  Sucess!

A fabulous hike from trail canyon, around and under so many large bristlecone pines, with great views of the high Spring Mountains. This one is worth climbing several times.

Bristlecone paradise  Sucess!

First of many times was from Fletcher Canyon, with all the beautiful springs and small waterfalls. Usually tag this from the North Loop Trail, or as part of a multipeak combo. Some of the most beautiful forests in Southern Nevada.

North Loop  Sucess!

This was the first of three trips up this peak. Nice climb, beautiful bristlecones. We came up once in the rain from the Trail Canyon side, and one other time from the North Loop. Nice escape for LV heat.

Great weather  Sucess!

Weather couldn't have been nicer, small amounts of snow lingering, especially on North facing slopes, but they are no impediment. Came in via the North Loop trail. Plenty of people on the North Loop, but NO ONE after the split to Fletcher. A private summit is an awesome summit.

Again on 7/21/13 from Trail Canyon.

Again on 10/25/14 after a near-miss of Mummy via NLT.

Again on 6/11/16, up Hummingbird, down the NLT. The second half of Hummingbird is beautiful.

Again on 9/16/17 via the left fork of Fletcher Canyon. GPS tracks

Via N. Loop  Sucess!

This time of year is wonderful, and being midweek there is almost no one else around. I had an hour alone on top, and only saw three people on the N. Loop trail. This is a great afternoon hike -- pretty short and relatively easy. The sweeping view across the length of Kyle Canyon from the summit is excellent. Looking forward to snowshoeing to the summit this winter.

via North Loop trail  Sucess!

I hiked this one with my daughter Tori and Steven Stembridge. We saw more than 100 other hikers during the 3.75 hours it took us to hike it. Not sure which of the two peaks is the highpoint so we tagged both just to be sure. No register on top.

Overnight Snowshoe  Sucess!

Climbed this peak as an overnight snowshoe trip. Lots of fresh snow all the way to the summit. Made camp at 9800' around the "raintree" area, summitted, then back down in the morning.

Fletcher Scramble  Sucess!

I summited this peak from North Loop, Hamingbird Hollow and Fletcher Canyon.
From the Fletcher Canyon, scramble up 2,200 ft steep slope in 1 mile. Its all class 2 but very steep.

Hiked with Mommy and Daddy. Daddy carried me, as usual, because I am only 11 months old. We got to see the magnificent Raintree also!

North Loop Trailhead  Sucess!

Hiked with my wife and carried DayHikerJr (age 11 months) from the North Loop trailhead. Fletcher's summit register is on the northwest (first) summit, but we made sure we tagged the southeast one also. On the way down, we went to say hello to the Raintree. Total distance: 7.4 miles, with 2400 feet of elevation gain.
