Ascent Trip Report

Weather was great. Chilly and a little windy when we stopped for lunch. Trail was very difficult to find after a certain point so we just climbed up and up. Got too risky for us without having a trail - we weren't sure how to get back down; so we stopped about 200 feet shy of the top. We did find the unmaintained trail on our way back down. We would try this one again, but with someone that knows the route.

You can see the oldest living thing in S. NV on this trail - a 30000 yr old Bristlecone.
