Total Distance: 6.5 miles round trip
Total Elevation Gain: 2500'
Altitude: 5200' - 7530'
Terrain Description: Class 1-2 until the 200-foot summit block which is Class 3-4
Approximate Hiking Time: 6-7 hours
This is a hike and scramble to the high point of the New York Mountains in San Bernardino, CA - about a 1-1.5 hour drive from Las Vegas. We will need high-clearance vehicles for the drive as there will be about 2.5 miles of driving on a rough dirt road. The first part of the hike will follow an old road, then it will be use trails and some Class 2 scrambling to the base of the peak. From there we will negotiate a series of Class 3-4 cracks and an exposed arête to reach the true summit. If you are not comfortable on Class 3-4 rock, you should not sign up. We will also probably climb North New York Mountain which is a bit lower and does not require any climbing.
