"Amber, Susie, Erica and I drove out to Mammoth to do a 'snow school' refresher, since we haven't had enough snow to do anything in our local mountains this year. We did the course on Saturday and had planned to climb Mount Morrison on Sunday, but there was a storm coming in, so we cut the trip short and drove back to Vegas. We decided to climb Blue Dick Benchmark on the way home, since we were all so fond of the name. The beta I had was kind of all over the place regarding distance, but we knew we would be hiking up a dirt road, so we went for it. We had high, cold winds for a good portion" - Harvey Peak, Kevin, Feb 18, 2018
"The 2nd Annual St. Valentine’s Day Quad Massacre did not disappoint! Harlan led me on a stunning and rugged route to the top of Gottlieb Peak and Little Red Rock Peak. 2 new peaks for me. The Clouds made it spectacular. We had some light rain and snow flurries. I’ve never been to the Little Red Rock area before. We only saw it from the summit but I need to run down there and check it out on another outing! And also go back for Whale Peak, Woody Peak and East LaMadre Peak...before the heat comes. (via legal access of course) 10.5 miles, 3,200’ gain. Thanks Harlan Stockman!!!!" - Gottleib Peak, paula.raimondi, Feb 14, 2018

"Rob was celebrating his second time completing the Las Vegas 52 Peak Challenge with Hiking Las Vegas' 52 Peak Club. There were about 30 people total hiking up to Turtlehead Jr via different routes to celebrate with him. We had a small group join us on the easy route from Sandstone Quarry, since we were all beat from yesterday's epic 14 hour ordeal. We enjoyed a nice, long break with everyone and participated in the mannequin themed photo op at the top before heading back down the way we came." - Turtlehead Jr, Kevin, Feb 11, 2018
"What a day! We started at the Willow Springs Picnic Area and hiked up Rocky Gap Road for a while. We then turned up a gully, which was quite scenic - water was flowing and there were several small waterfalls to negotiate. I had a GPS track to follow up to the top of the ridge, which was nice, since the break in the cliff bands was hidden for most of the approach. The way up was loose, brushy and tick-ridden. Sadly, the top of the ridge wasn't much better. We bushwhacked our way north, where we would finally gain Peak 7877's SE Ridge. Once there, we dropped our 200 foot rope, pull cord a" - Peak 7877 ft, Kevin, Feb 10, 2018
