On your page, you still have the old link to Greys Peak. The user deleted the page. I have recreated it. Here is the new link: http://www.summitpost.org/greys-peak-nevada/688513

You're Welcome

No problem Greg. I climbed Grey's Peak in July 2010, so it was fresh is my mind. I climbed its neighbor, Peak 10745 the same day. A trip I will never forget. If I had more time, I would have loved to check out Hole in the Mountain Peak. Is it really dangerous?

Re: You're Welcome

Its a wonderful area isn't it? If you go early spring or summer, there could be a lot of snow in the chute. When I visited there was no snow and the hardest part was not slipping on the loose scree, best thing to do was stay on the grass. Unfortunately if more people went up there, it would be eroded away. Not a dangerous peak IMO. Greg

roads

Sumitted on 9/23/2014. The road through private land to the USFS boundary might be able to get a low clearance vehicle up there, but not without scraping bottom a lot; perhaps it was the summer rains, but there's been pretty decent erosion and there are now some ruts. Would not want to take low clearance up there if I could help it.

The road beyond the forest service boundary is deplorable right now; horribly eroded and full of large rocks. Made great effort in a rented SUV but could only get halfway; hit a section with lots of loose rocks about 7500 feet and it just would not go any higher. Would probably need 4-low to make it.

Trail is poor but not impossible to find beyond the actual "road" end. Did lose it a couple times, though, but with your destination in sight until you get to the chute, its not easy to truly get lost. Upper-most section was very steep and rocky; not quite class 3 but not far from it. Had trouble not sliding down the chute on the way back down and ended up twisting an ankle; that wasn't fun.
