After Charleston  Sucess!

East tag from the South Loop trail...yet not quite as easy on day 4 of my trip though. Very busy summit by the number of log entries. View to Mummy Mtn is spectacular.

On the way to Charleston  Sucess!

Came up the South Loop and made Griffith in a little over two hours from the TH. 108 in Vegas and I was wearing my coat while I sat and had a snack on the summit. The Spring Mountains are cool, get it..cool :)

3rd time Griffith   Sucess!

Seemed harder today, snow on south loop trail towards top, not a lot but enough. You must negotiate it ... Also it's a scramble to peak as lots of snow on trail..

South Loop Trail  Sucess!

Wow, it was LOVE at first sight with the Spring Mountains for me. I LOVE this place and cannot wait to get back. Charleston was Plan A, but there was an INCREDIBLE ammount of snow in the trees up higher. I got to the ridge, saw a clear shot up Griffith, and visited that summit, instead. A lot of folks turned around / didn't make it, but I did run into one local up there who was smart enough (unlike me) have his ice ax for the steep stuff. I delighted in the sheer limestone cliffs and was just amazed by the violence of the avy chute - splintered trees, rocks, etc. No doubt when that chute releases, it roars. Now I have an excuse to come back to visit Charleston!

Sticks out above  Sucess!

The approach from Harris Peak gives a great staircase. And the approach from Southern loop has fun switchbacks.

Last of 3 Peaks in a day  Sucess!

Did Mummy first from trail canyon, then Charleston, then Griffith. Griffith might have the best views of Vegas. We summited at about 5pm, and wished we could camp there to see the view at night. Maybe next time.

South Loop  Sucess!

My girlfriend, roommate, and myself went up the south loop for a quick day hike. The aspen's were changing to their fall colors so it was quite pretty.

Griffith Peak  Sucess!

Four of us did a two car hike from Harris Springs to Cathedral Rock trailhead. I liked the part of the trail constructed through the cliffs above the pass. The temp in Las Vegas was 107 and around 65 on top of the ridge. We hiked to Harris Mountain and Griffith Peak and it turned out to be a fun day.

Griffith Trailhead (Harris Springs Rd)  Sucess!

Hiked with Mommy and Daddy from the Griffith Peak trailhead. Daddy carried me, of course, because I am not yet 9 1/2 months old.

Route Climbed: Harris Saddle Spring 2007  Sucess!

Awesome late spring hike with a friend. Great views from the summit and a relaxing day in the mountains. Cool temps fooled me into a wicked sunburn though, I keep forgetting that just because it's not hot out doesn't mean the sun is not there.

Summited before Charleston

Stopped at Griffith because I started around noon from the south loop trail and hoped to summit Charleston (my original goal). It worked out the I bagged 2 summits that day--Griffith and Charleston.
