Ascent Trip ReportThis was more of a social outing than a real climb, but it did give some a first taste of peak-bagging. The views of Boulder City and Lake Mead were beautiful.
Please note that the trail is labeled "River Mountain Trail" but I refer to it as "Black Mountain Overlook trail", so as not to confuse it with the River Mountain Trail that loops around the River Mountains, and because the trail does not go to River Mountain.
