Ascent Trip Report

Current conditions of Titus Canyon Road was such that a high-clearance 2WD vehicle could easily drive the road. We parked at Red Pass, about 12.4 miles from the start of the Titus Canyon Road, and followed the use trail as it went along the ridgeline, dropped to a saddle at the base of the peak, then climbed the NE ridge of Thimble Peak. There were one or two high class 2 steps near the summit with some exposure. One of the nicer hikes to a peak in Death Valley with wonderful views from the summit.
