  • This location is shown only to members

Total Distance: ~4-5 miles round trip
Total Elevation Gain: ~2,000'
Altitude: 4,800' - 6,300'
Terrain Description: off-trail, class 4 scrambling
Approximate Hiking Time: about 6 hours

 

 

This hike is organized by me, but the route is led by Ed Forkos.

 

A wonderful loop of White Rock Hills Peak, ascending via the large SE "Diamond Ledge" canyon, descending the standard way down the W slopes. It's a shorter very steep route involving a considerable amount of serious climbing up to exposed Class 4. Lots of tough exposed climbing. A great hike to gain experience for really scrambling a peak and to test your limits learning more of what it is like to mountaineer.


 

Please remember to answer the questions after RSVPing. If you are using a phone, the questions will not appear. Therefore, please check back again to answer the questions.

To participate in this outing, you must be a current, paid member of LVMC. You can obtain a membership via this link: http://www.lvmc.org/w.... The fee is $40 per year for a family/roommates or $30 per year for an individual. Please contact your organizer if you have any questions.

If you don't answer the four RSVP questions and you are not listed on the LVMC member roles I will ignore you and remove you from the trip without notice. Although, if you are new to the group and want to try us out without being a member, I welcome you as long as you contact me describing your experience for consideration on a case-by-case basis.

I am very tired and annoyed with random non-members signing up for my hikes I don't know who don't communicate with me and/or don't even show up for the hikes after I spent time corresponding with them. Thank you for your understanding!

    FYI the Red Rock Full & Half Marathon is this same day, and they run the loop backwards. Marathon at 6:00 and Half at 6:45. Will definitely create traffic hassles for you.

      As a result of this news and considering the BLM will probably have issues with us parking in that lot behind the fee both, let's instead meet at the Red Rock Casino in the NW part of the parking lot closest to 215 & Charleston at the same time.

    I've done this once before about five years ago and loved it. Tough route to find so I'm happy to go with somebody who knows the way.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
