This is a weekend trip to summit some prominent peaks in central Nevada-
Reveille Peak - 8,812' elevation, 2678' prominence
Rawhide Mountain - 9,169' elevation, 2439' prominence
Kawich Peak - 9,401' elevation, 3081' prominence
Kawich Peak is also on the Great Basin Peaks List, and has almost 40 miles of isolation (is the tallest peak for 39.4 miles in any direction).
The plan is to drive towards the trailhead for Reveille on Friday evening, climb Reveille on Saturday morning, then drive to Rawhide Mountain, and hike that. Depending on time, we'll either camp there or drive to the trailhead for Kawich and camp there. On Sunday we'll hike Kawich and then head back to Las Vegas.
Total Distance: Reveille: 2.4, Rawhide: 2.7, Kawich: 4.7 (miles round trip)
Total Elevation Gain: Reveille: 1,800', Rawhide: 1,500', Kawich: 2,300'
Altitude: 6,800' - 9,401'
Terrain Description: Probably a mix of class 1-2, some bushwhacking on Kawich
Approximate Hiking Time: Reveille: 4, Rawhide: 3, Kawich: 6 (hours)
