From Mountain Springs - hit Mtn. Springs Peak on the way back. All manner of flowers were blooming at lower elevations, and for the last few hours (including in the entire summit zone), I saw no people until returning to the trailhead. Cairns really helped speed up the sandstone portion - some amazing rock up there.
Hidden and Monument from ridgeline to Mountain Springs Pk
w/ Maddie. Took the trail across the summit of Mountain Spring Peak, then continued on the climber's trail to Hidden. The sandstone portion was fun, as always, and the views down Black Velvet Canyon were incredible.
With a group. Up from Black Velvet, hitting Veterans real quick, then Monument, then rappel, then Hidden.
Easy hike from the west, took a "non-standard" return.
Scrambled to summit from basin between Hidden and Monument, descended regular way.
Many, many times. It's an easier trip from the west, parking by Rainbow Springs, and heading up over the limestone ridge.
Climbed with Peter, Barb, Judy, Jacquie and Richard B
