Ascent Trip Report

Not exactly a hike or a climb, as I drove to the top of it. That wasn't actually the plan - I was trying to find the place to start hiking from, but got a little lost in the jigsaw puzzle of roads and Jeep trails up there. I was in my Hyundai Santa Fe AWD crossover & learned that it's a little more "capable" than I thought, considering what I ended up taking to the top had to have been what was a marked as a "Jeep trail" on the map. But the map on my phone, and then a closer study of the map(s) once back home confirmed that's where I was.

It was sure nice to see Washoe Lake up to the point of overflowing after seeing it completely dry the last time I was up in those hills (two years ago).

So I'm not sure if I should mark this peak as "bagged", or add an account for the Santa Fe and claim it as a "hiking partner", or.... HAH!!! Anyway, I stood on top, so I guess that's what matters...
