Thanks for adding this page. I enjoy exploring remote areas of Nevada. I guess that anything outside of Reno and Vegas would be considered “remote areas”.
Glad to see another Nevada peak! Nice photos and descriptions!
Great page on a mountain in the corner of the country that has always fascinated me. Will make a trip there sometime this fall I hope (lots of nice peaks to bag there I think).
Another good page Dean!
I was wondering when someone was going to submit this mountain. When I was doing a search for Granite Peak, MT, I kept getting hits for Granite Peak, NV, so I knew it must be a popular peak. Good page!
Thanks for adding this page! I have been there more times than I can remember (at least 20, last time about 2 weeks ago) and I have never seen a summit register. Where is it? One small correction: The little town on the Oregon/Nevada border is spelled McDermitt.
Great page. Good job. Cheers William
NIce page, Thank you for posting it. I found it very helpful in planning my trip to climb it.
Thanks for your vote. I am glad it proved helpful in your planning and that you enjoyed your visit. That is a long lonely stretch from Lakeview to the Chevron station at Paradise Valley turnoff. It is one that is scenic with all the great peaks you can see. I want to go back and get Duffer and Bloody Run peaks there in Nevada. Did you find the register on top and if so, was it in good shape?
I did find the register, and I also found your business card. I was the first to sign it so far this year. The old one is kind of beat up looking, but there is a new one that is in good shape. HIghway 140 is certainly one of the loneliest roads I have seen, which adds to this area's charm.
I don't think you've missed anything here... great job and I liked the 'bonus' sections as well!
in December or January? If I can scrounge up a 3 day weekend I might consider this.
Hmmm, it is possible that there is snow up at that pass (Hinkley Summit pass) but perhaps the forest service (Humboldt National) could provide an answer. I wouldn't think it'd be too difficult a hike even with snow for someone with experience. I'd most likely go in the Paradise Valley way and drive as far as I could.
