Ascent Trip ReportMt. Moriah, HP of the Snake Range, was the culmination of an outing organized by Vicky Hoover of the Sierra Club’s S.F.Bay Chapter to acquaint peak climbers with infrequently visited ranges in eastern Nevada. Members of the Toiyabe Chapter and Desert Peaks Section were included in the group of 17 participants. The previous peaks climbed during the week were Corduroy Mountain, Currant Mountain, and Blue Eagle Mountain, which was substituted for North and South Schell Peaks after they were blanketed by an unexpected snowfall. On July 3 we drove north from the junction of U.S. 50/6 and the Baker Hwy on a good dirt road (with several intersections)to its end on Hendrys Creek at the national forest boundary.
