I've never gotten so many ticks crawling up my legs. trip report
I hiked/scrambled up this one with two of my coworkers, Greg Toth and Brian Adams.
Climbed with LVMC ~ 4 hrs plus hike ~ 6 hrs travel roundtrip from Vegas...way too much driving!!!
Tough drive to where we stopped in the wash. No trail, some brush, long day, great views.
We ended up doing this one on Friday rather than Saturday since higher temps were scheduled for Sat/Sun. Tough roads and I'll make some recommendations about where to park at a later date but we had a perfect day of weather for climbing this one. It is very isolated and 4WD high clearance is mandatory for even thinking about this one. Two vehicles out there would be best. Did this one with Dennis Poulin. We were the first to sign the register in almost a year.
This was a great peak, but the drive in was a little sketchy. The second stream crossing was a little too deep for the Jimmy and then it didn't help that it rained that night and we tried to drive out the next day ...and the stream did get deeper. The Jimmy survived and so did I! This was a great trip, I did Bangs, Virgin, Mormon and West Mountain Peak.
May 2003: That time of year is a bit late-- hot hot hot. There is a wonderful peak to the NE -- dubbed Sharkstooth -- that would be a nice climb.
March 2014: Climbed Sharkstooth (no sign of previous visit) with Tracy F, CP0915, Double A and Steve. The Cp0915 and AA and I went up a very gnarly route through the cliffs of Mormon.
