South loop to Griffith and Charleston. Took the North loop trail on the way down and went up Mummy Mountain. This was first ever real scrambling. Lots of fun, but tiring towards the end of my hike.
There were lots of people parked at Trail Canyon trailhead today, so I expected a crowd on top -- instead, I was surprised that I'm only the second person in 2012. It's early yet, though. Still quite a bit of hard, icy snow paths along the base of the cliffs, so route finding was a bit of a challenge at times. Beautiful on top, glad to have finally made it up.
Took us 3 attempts but we finally reached the top. The North Loop trail is so scenic and from the scree slope forward the hike gets very interesting.
Again on 6/28/14.
Again on 9/27/14, after summitting Charleston.
Again on 5/28/16 with some snow and ice to detour around on the ridge to the chute.
Again on 9/3/17, up the scree slope, down the E chute, over to Mummy's Toe, then back around to Trail Canyon. GPS tracks
Again on 9/21/17, up the standard scree slope route with a friend. Down the same way. 50MPH gusts at the top, windiest hike I've ever been on. Beautiful fall colors.
Again on 8/25/18, just a run up and down the standard screen slope route. Up in 1:38, total time 2:39.
Again on 7/13/19, from Trail Canyon up the scree slope.
Tried once a long time ago but my friend gave up so I had to head down with him. This time I went up on the other side, it was much easier. This was the first peak of a 3-peak day with the LVMC training for Rainier.
took south loop to griffith, charleston, and then north loop to mummy. mummy trail good, others had snow in parts still on them
Awesome Day, Great Weather, No Snowshoes which made the ridge and backside of Mummy interesting. Charlie Mountain Pug made it up and down by himself. Great Day, Fun Hike!
Went up the scree to the tummy. If you love scree, do it. It was the final peak of 4 that day including Harris, Griffith, and Charleston.
Have been up Mummy 5 times. Most memorable was winter 2009, crampon up through boy scout camp
This was one of my favorite outings of the year to date. Mojavebobcat and I climbed the standard route, electing to do the class 2 chute to the summit. The route was snow-free, save for a few patches along the ridge above the North loop trail. While it was 105 degrees down in Las Vegas, we enjoyed a summit temperature of 63 degrees and great views that extended all the way to Langley/Whitney, 145 miles away. The view northeast was the most obscured by haze, presumably due to the prevailing airflow in the Las Vegas Valley. Overall, another great day touring the Desert Peaks Section mountains.
Did it on my 21st birthday with WML! Haha we were so tired in the clubs that night...
Did this one first, then Charleston, then Griffith. Thee scree slope was more fun coming down then going up. Look for the tree with a "M" on it, the trail is easy to follow after climbing the scree.
Fun mountain to climb...scree sloggin'
It's always fun to leave Vegas at well over 100 degrees and climb for a few hours to tag a summit under hail and freezing rain. Went up the standard scree slope route.
Climbed w/ Whitney Lyman - beautiful hike, great scenery and a rather unique summit...Whit did not enjoy the scree though!
This peak is one of my favorite mountain in Souther Nevada. Climbed up 17 times in 2 years.
Did Mummy Nose to Toe, 3 peaks, 4 peaks, 5 peaks in 1 day etc...
I love Deer Creek - Peak direct ascent route.
Beautiful day hike. Tremendous views the whole way. Good trail with cairns above the scree field.
Good day hike for visitors to Vegas.
Made it to the summit on Mummy's tummy. Good scrambling at the end.
Age 9 1/2 months. Hiked with Mommy and Daddy. Daddy carried me because I can't walk yet.
North/South Loop Combo around Kyle Canyon. Trip Report
