Try it during the Winter (beats the trail and bush wacking) ;)
Nice hike, very windy on summit.

26 Mar 2010 - South Slopes
From ski area up the south slopes. Skied from the top of the trees. Some nice powder over crust.
12 Aug 2009 - Mt. Rose Trail
2nd of 3 peaks this day. Cold and windy on the top.
Great conditions, hard neve in the morning with easy glissading snow after hanging out on the summit for a while
Was wearing shorts and a t-shirt by 8 am on a super hot april day. The route up is pretty straight forward, just stay slightly to the north of the main ridge. The snowboard down was awesome! Probably the last time this season to ride to the base of the climb as the snow is melting right quick.
Very fun but very cold!
Solo hike after first dusting of snow in Tahoe area. I was alone on the way up which was really nice. Got super cold and windy once I gained the ridge. Lots of hoar frost - made it look like a moonscape above treeline. Tons of people and dogs were heading up as I descended.
A very busy day on the trail due to the fact that the Nevada Wilderness Conservation Society (or something to that effect) had carried three pony kegs to the summit, where they were selling beer. Apparently it's an annual event. Unfortunately, I only had a dollar, which I didn't feel was a fair "donation" for a beer - most people were paying $4-5. Oh well, entertaining nonetheless.
fun dog hike with good peoplewatching
nice hike and great views from the top
Somehow convinced my girlfriend to do this one after partying the whole weekend for July 4th in Reno. Hungover but that faded fast. Nice waterfall, pretty scenery.
Great hike combined with a tag of Church for good measure!!
Ridge traverse from Rose->Church->Houghton->Relay.
A really nice trail with the flowers out and the waterfall and just a nice day all around. This is one I might even repeat.
A fun morning hike with Ryan. Trip Report
Had a nice weekend in the area, bagging Mount Rose, Church Peak, Sunflower Mountain, Houghton, and Relay Peak.
Nice early morning hike. Poor views from all the CA wildfires. Stopped by Church Peak too.
Been up a couple of times, the above date being my first. I've gone in on both the old road and the new TRT trail.
