I'll give you the finger.....Finger Rock to Mt. Kimbell

Who's brave enough to tackle the finger, the stair climber and one of the most hated climbs even for experienced hikers. I don't know which is the worst part; the steep continuous switchbacks or the climbing over rock slabs and boulders or the nearly 4,000ft. elevation gain. But once you get pass the pain and complete terror of the hike it's definitely worth the beauty and spectacular views from atop of Mt. Kimbell.


This 10 mile (RT) hike IS NOT for beginners or even some moderate hikers. The goal is to do better then the first time which took me 10hrs. So now that I'm in better shape I would like to do this in about 8 to 9 hrs. I will be stopping to rest so we can take pictures and let others catch up but I will like to get to the car before nightfall.


What to bring:

At least 3 or 4 liters (Better to be safe then sorry)




Snack and Lunch

Flashlight (Just in case)

Durable HIKING shoes (no tennis shoes)

Use your energy wisely and enjoy the hike....

FYI Look out for my first STFU hike coming soon.

Talking only at trailhead, during breaks and at our main destination. Any talking during the hike has to buy the organizer a beer :-)

    Friggin steep that's what but glad Teri was there to lead the way. Views, after all that hard work, are just kind of "meh".

    I just wanted to stress I'm not the best at grammer or spelling sometimes. But you're always welcome to correct me.
    And yes I wasn't trying to make this hike seem easy because it is not.

      not correcting, just riffing, like, puns come up in casual banter, feel free to laugh, I'm not gonna twist your arm...

    the most hated hike? Terror? Vow of silence? STFU? Litters? To carry back the wounded?

      Did I scare you? You don't agree?

      What's your day job? Sales? Lol - you probably meant "Liters", not "litters", and no, it's not jitters, just the time commitment. Had a great day yesterday at Helvetia and found the prettiest orange garnets!

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.
