Peak 6345 is a summit with approximately 340’ of prominence. It is unnamed and not even on topographic maps. The elevation comes from Google Earth™. Although not lofty, it is quite pretty, and has incredible views in all directions. In particular are the Pine Nut Mountains to the east-southeast and the Carson Range to the west. There are very interesting rock formations on its southern flank.
The simplest ways to approach are either from the Fandango parking lot or the water towers on Voltaire Canyon Road. It is very self explanatory once in the area. Take a right on Curry St. to reach the Fandango parking lot. If you wish to access Voltaire Canyon Road, pass Curry Street and turn right on Voltaire Street, then after 1/10th of a mile, a left on Voltaire Canyon Road.About ¼ up Voltaire Canyon Road is a jeep road heading up the slope on the right. This leads to Peak 6345. From the water towers about 1/2 mile up Voltaire Canyon Road there is a parking area. There is a connector road about a tenth of a mile past the water towers that steeply leads up the hill to the ridge. Past that, there is another jeep road that leads into a small canyon, less than a quarter mile past the parking area at the water towers. This is preferred because it is more gradual.
These starting points range in distance and elevation gain. From Fandango, it is a little under 2 miles one-way and over 1,500’ to the summit. If starting at the road ¼ mile up Voltaire Canyon Road, it is about 1 ¾ miles one-way and about 1,425’. From the water tower routes it is about 1 ½ miles to the summit, with an elevation gain of about 1,250’. It is very steep at points.
