I spotted about five wrong summits on the way up. The true summit is very well concealed. After leaving the wash for the final ridge, just head NW and don't lose faith in the route
After taking a very non-standard route the first time, I tried to stay on the standard route this time. I mostly succeeded. Weather in the area, but none of it on me. I think it is the end of the cool weather window for desert peaks.
It was a cold and windy day.
With Evan Rasmussen, had a late start because of the Kingston outing earlier. Got back just as it was getting dark. Trip Report.
...and again in 2012. First time up with CP0915 we took a very non-standard route
Not the most exciting hike ever. We did see a nice bighorn ram though. Climbed Pahrump Point in the afternoon, then Nopah Range HP the next day.
A very fun 4 day solo trip.
