Drove to a bit over 6800' near an old mine. Overcast all day, with weather on Telescope and the higher ranges in the area.
What a hassle peak! If it was not on the DPS we wouldn't have bothered. The last bit of ridge is actually fun, but getting to it is not. Did Grapevine and Wahguyhe the previous day. It was damn cold the entire time with temperatures at camp in the teens. This was part of a 21 day hiking road-trip with Heather. Other peaks we did on this trip include:
Pinos, Sawmill, Aliso, Signal, Castle Dome, Ajo, Miller, Superstition BM, Turtle HP, Old Woman, Granite, Cinder Cone 3894', Avawatz, Pahrump, Pinto, Nelson HP, Panamint Butte, Canyon Point, Shadow, Wahguye, Stirling, Northshore, Black Mesa, Hamblin, and Little Virgin.
We also visited Heiroglyphic Canyon, Marble Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, Sheep Spring Canyon, Cadiz Dunes, Mojave Lava Tube, Parowan Gap Dinosaur tracks and numerous pertroglyph sites.
See the trip report with photos for more information.
Not much to say. At least one of the bumps on the way was actually higher than the peak itself. The elevation profile looks like a rip saw blade.
Solo trip. Below freezing at night, great day; Wahguyhe the next morn.
