Ascent Trip ReportHit this one and Buck Mountain just before the skies opened up and thunder ruled the day. Poured rain and hail and I was glad I put rain gear in pack. Got back to my truck before the worst of it hit but it is scary place to be in an electrical storm, not recommended. However, if you hike this one in good conditions, by all means continue on and pick up neighboring Buck Mtn. I love Great Basin National park and some day I hope to climb every prominence peak in the park. I still have a fair amount of work to do but this Park is a gem. If you climb Wheeler, don't just stop there.
