Bridge Mountain  Sucess!

The road to the trailhead is in terrible condition. I have a Chevy Colorado Z71 4x4, and I had to stop 2 miles in because of washouts. You'd need a dirt bike to get around all the massive boulders sticking up out of the road now.

I hiked 3.1 miles to the trailhead, from there it's 3.5 miles to the summit of Bridge Mountain (making the roundtrip 7 miles, not 6 as stated in the route description). It's tough to tell from the way I did my route, but I'd estimate the total vert gained on the trail is closer to 2500' than 3000'.

From Red Rock Summit  Sucess!

Plenty of exposure. 6 people turned around in front of me. Expect some frictioning for the feet - not all big jugs.
I downclimbed past two rap rigs so at least someone roped up.
The route looks much harder than it is from far.

One of the Best  Sucess!

This is one of the classic peaks in Red Rock. There are at least four other routes to the summit. The route through Pine Creek is fun and does not require driving/walking the Rocky Gap Road.
