Ascent Trip Report

Up in 45 min from the beginning of the dirt road at pavement in Virginia City to summit. One of the fastest ascents I have been able to pull off recently. We followed the steep trail under the power lines to the end of the power lines below the ridge (~7,600')and then just headed south to the summit ridge and use trail to the summit. We saw 3 wild mustangs near the summit of Ophir, the bonus bump. Surprisingly windy on top but nowehere else... Pics
