This is a 2-day trip to summit both the highest point and the most prominent point in Lyon county (Nevada). Saturday's focus will be the county high point- a spot on the border of California, on the slope of a peak called Middle Sister. My goal is to climb both East and Middle Sister.
Sunday we'll tackle the most prominent point in the county, yet another peak called "Bald mountain". There's a road going most of the way up this one, so there may be flexibility as to how much we choose to hike on this one.
Total Distance: 6.5 miles round trip Saturday, maybe 6.5 miles round trip Sunday
Total Elevation Gain: 4,000' Saturday, maybe 2,000' Sunday
Altitude: 7,500' - 10,854'
Terrain Description: Mostly off-trail, class 1-2 expected
Approximate Hiking Time: 9 hours Saturday, 10 hours Sunday
