Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Awesome petroglyphs! The best I have ever seen. As for my impression of the rest of the route, not very interesting really. This was the first peak I did in a 4 day solo trip. Afterwards I climbed Brown Peak, Dumont Dunes HP, Nopah Range HP, Nopah Peak, and Stewart Point.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Had the right vehicle so took the drive in to Gold Valley and up the South Ridge from there. A bit a scree on part of the route, but overall a very nice trip.

From Greenwater  Sucess!

Not a particularly challenging or great peak, but there is some interesting history in the area - found quite a group of petroglyphs in the canyon as well as some claim stakes with original papers. Fun area to explore.

up - E Ridge / down - SE Face  Sucess!

Not a particularly stellar hike. So-so at best.

muy sloggo, muchachos  Sucess!

The brush is mainly blackbush, which doesn't usually break the skin, so I opted for shorts.

Even though there is nothing challenging (in the sense of class 3) about this hike, it sure demands your attention -- with brush avoidance on the lower ramp, and basalt-boulder-balancing on the upper. I made it up is 1h 53m, powered by sheer spite. Every quasi-summit that wasn't the real thing just caused me to grit my teeth more.

I'm amazed how many people had signed in the register in the last month alone.

I parked closer to the highpoint in the road than did Dean. In any case, you may be pressed to find a pull-off in this section. I just pulled up on the bank; but hikers with 2WD drive cars have to watch out for soft sand.

Morning was Thimble; this was the afternoon jaunt. Didn't get to this "trailhead" till 1 PM. This "2-peak" was a day outing from Vegas. I underestimated how long it would take to drive from Red Pass, via Titus Canyon, to Furnace Creek and down the Greenwater Road.

Three days of antibiotics do wonders.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

An easy climb with Evan Rasmussen in the morning. Not one of the better Death Valley peaks to be sure. Trip Report

Funeral Peak  Sucess!

Cool windy morning. Great views all around with little clouds. There was some snow after about three quarter of the way up.

From Greenwater Valley Road  Sucess!

Thanksgiving Day hike--before this page was created! Came up from the Greenwater Valley Road. An easy hike with spectacular views. Do NOT wear shorts (as I did)--your legs will get all scratched up by the desert scrub!

Fueral Peak - Stanard Route  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this hike. I know the mileage from car to base of the peak probably wasn't that far ... but something about staring at your goal the whole time while walking across open desert sure makes it seem far. Found some petroglyphs in a little canyon on the W side of the peak.
