First summit!  Sucess!

It was cold and windy, but the views were great, and there was no one else on the trail. Great first summit.

A nice desert peak outing  Sucess!

Climbed this along with Black Mountain. Sadly the dust was so intense the normally excellent views were stunted. An easy climb well worth doing.

Windy Day  Sucess!

Parked off of Hwy 395 and followed a very old Jeep track to the north ridge. Fun scrambling to the very windy summit.

Blazed our Own  Sucess!

Hiked from 395 straight up the valley where the water would flow between the 2 mountains directly in front of you. Took the Saddle to the False peak where there was a big flag pole. Then hoped onto that saddle over to Red Mt. Great views on a great day. poured some brew out for the fallen comrades and decided to blaze our own path straight down the side of Red. Not very brightand very dangerous
