Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Stewart BM from the north. Rather than detail the directions, I prefer that anyone following my route should do the proper research to get to the trailhead. This is a very remote area of Nevada and unless you have a dependable vehicle with high clearance, 4WD, good tires, and lots of gas you may become stranded for a very long time. I was the 12th person to sign the register since it was placed in 1999. The first since 2009. I parked on top of the hill labelled 8288 on the topo and it was an easy hike up to the summit from there. There is an old derelict truck abandoned near point 8288. Fantastic views in all directions.
