Ascent Trip Report

Traveling from the west on U.S. 6, turn right on NV 264,approx. 14 miles from the CA-NV border. After approx 8 miles and just beyond the NV 773 intersection, turn right on Trail Canyon Rd and follow it 2.4 miles to its end. This morning we headed west on the trail to the left and above the stream through sagebrush, then followed a faint use trail up the drainage to the Trail Canyon Saddle (10,800'). From here we continued south up scree and switchbacks to a level area at approx. 12,100'. Finally, we crossed through larger talus and blocks to the NE ridge, which took us to the top. After a lunch break we traversed over to Montgomery Peak and back before an uneventful hike down to camp in Trail Canyon.
