Dayhiking the Nevada County Highpoints
1988 - 2011

Last Updated: 10/25/11

After I completed the CA county highpoints, I started looking at other states. I had climbed two of Nevada's CoHPs years earlier, but began working through the list in 2008. The effort stagnated in the beginning of summer of 2010 when I had two peaks remaining. One of these was Mt. Grant, located on an Army reservation. The peak and surrounding area had been closed to the public since 9/11, and I was asked by Bob Sumner to hold off on poaching it while he and others worked on gaining access. Their efforts resulted in the first "Mt. Grant 9/11 Challenge" which I participated in. A few weeks later I took two days to make the marathon drive to Wheeler Peak to finish off the list. None of the peaks are difficult as dayhikes, in fact this is the way most folks complete this list.
