Ascent of Peavine Peak on 2014-09-27
|Date:||Saturday, September 27, 2014|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||8266 ft / 2519 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI drove a rental Toyota Corrolla about 5 miles up the road, within a mile of the top. I could have driven farther, but the road was washboarded higher up and I felt it wise to park when I had a chance. The walk to and from the summit was easy, taking about 45 minutes. Weather was misty and drizzly, with steady breezes. At this elevation, it was rather chilly.
Met a couple guys on their quads and they were "amazed" I got my car up as far as I did. I probably pushed my luck doing so, but the road is generally smooth.
The whole journey, including driving, from hotel and back took me 2 hours, 30 minutes.
