Red Check  Sucess!

A true walk up. Hiking through the waterfalls and wildflowers was far more interesting than the dreary summit ridge. No need to repeat this hike.

good hike  Sucess!

Pretty waterfall on the way up, the trail was annoyingly long on the way down. Nice views of Tahoe on the summit. Done on my drive home from Shasta

Summit via East Face  Sucess!

Approached on the Jones Creek Trail. Began post holing. Snowshoes necessary from 1/4 mile east of Church's Pond. Crampons necessary the last several hundred feet. Had the top to meself, no signs in the snow of humans there for weeks or months. Lenticular clouds in the sky to the southeast. Glorious view!

Training hike  Sucess!

Nice easy hike. Well maintained trail. Took the dogs. Pretty windy on top but there are some nice some wind breaks and the views are amazing.

Rose and Church  Sucess!

I did the normal hike on the way up but then went over to the summit of Church Peak from the saddle between the two and then cut over to the trail on the west edge of the saddle on the way down. There was a faint use path in some places.

1:48 up, 26 min. on top, 25 min. to Church, 1:39 down, 4:19 total RT.

This southern Nevadan left the Spring Mountains behind for a weekend and enjoyed this granite beauty.

Great trip with the kids  Sucess!

Took my kids, 5 and 6 along with me. They didn't care too much for the wind at the end but it was fun xp. Can't wait to do it again.

Great Day Trip  Sucess!

Wonderful views, easy up and back, and scramble if you like. Maybe 10-15mph winds at the top. Amazing weather, too. Very worth it for how easy it is.

Christmas Rose  Sucess!

Christmas Day- Me and Alan set out from Jones Creek TH at 4am, pitched tent in the meadow behind Church's Pond and kept going after sunrise. Not a bad route if you LOVE to bushwack for 14 hours over patchy snow.

Great Mountain  Sucess!

Took just under two and a half hours to ascend the roughly 4700 feet from the Galena Creek trailhead to the summit via Church pond. Beautiful day, albeit a bit breezy.

a little breezy  Sucess!

Started at the turnout by the snow plow garage below Sky Tavern (7500'), SE ridge route. My first time by this route. Ascended in 2:15, total 4:00. Beautiful day, Tahoe was shimmering in the sun. 20F and 55mph wind at the summit.

3rd time's the charm  Sucess!

Tried twice before but too much snow. Made it up this time from the ski resort parking lot -- snowshoes & crampons. Had the whole peak to myself for the day.

Lots of snow!  Sucess!

Wally came up from Phoenix and we hiked up Mt. Rose. Had been waiting for enough snow to melt to make an ascent...we still spent about 1/3 of the hike in snow fields. Yet another beautiful day in the Lake Tahoe Basin area. Ran into "Bob" age 91, still hiking...onward, upward. Amazing.

one of many  Sucess!

Hiked this many times. Highest peak ringing the Reno valley. Great short day hike with awesome views.

Fourth NV CoHP In Three Days  Sucess!

After successfully summiting Boundary Peak, Mount Grant, and Mount Davidson the previous two days, we had enough time in the morning hours to hike to the summit of Mount Rose before needing to fly back to Washington. Great trail, and great views from the summit area. I hiked over to nearby Church Peak, afterwards.
