Ascent Trip Report

Another of my "Nevada Sierra Peaks" bagged today. Pretty straightforward - parked at the Mt. Rose Trailhead and hiked through the campsite & then up the service road to all the radio facilities up there. As someone mentioned previously, negotiating all the electronics and radio installations was the biggest challenge to reaching the actual peak, as different roads went to different facilities and then ended. Finally got to the highest spot, and as promised, the views were spectacular.
