Ascent Trip ReportThis was a moderate peak (technically trivial, but with some steepness and loose ground) with great views. It's great when one is in the Las Vegas area and doesn't have time for something more demanding.
I wish I knew why it was called "New Peak" - it certainly doesn't appear any newer than any of the surrounding peaks!
