Ascent Trip Report

After completing the 2014 9-11 Challenge (the full 17.2 miles), I hiked to the wrong summit and had to wait until this year (2015) to gain the true Mineral County high point.
After a 45 minute drive to the top and a 20 minute scramble to the summit, the eleventh of the 17 Nevada county high points was done.
The view was amazing!!
