New Years Day. Hardly any snow. A lot of the mountain was burned recently.
Hiked on a cloudy day while higher peaks were getting snowed on. Ran into a wilderness therapy organization who were taking a group of teens up the mountain while I was coming back down.
Nice fun, little hike. Also did Peak 6734 after words. It is the opposite direction of Red Pine from where I parked at the pass on Little Valley Road.
Parked at the top of the Little Valley Road at 6400' and walked the 4-wheel drive road about a mile to about 6900' where we took off for the summit.
Climbed Indian Peaks earlier in the day. We climbed Red Pine from the Little Valley Road. Very interesting to see so much limestone after climbing quartzite Indian Peaks in the same day. Very straightforward climb and the views were rewarding. Could see Wheeler Peak in Great Basin NP and Frisco Peak to the SW. Exceptional visibility on a Halloween Day
My brothers, dad and I climbed this peak after a father/sons campout at Lookout Pass.
The peak is called Lookout Mountain on some maps.
An interesting and somewhat steep snow hike up the north ridge to the summit. Wonderful views on a friday the 13th.
