Assistant Organizer Jason Lillebo led five hikers to two peaks today in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Hamblin Mountain, Vistas of Pinto Valley, Lake Mead, Bowl of Fire, and Las Vegas make this one of the more scenic hikes in Lake Mead and Northshore Peak, also described as one of the best peaks around Lake Mead. There are great views from along the ridgeline of this summit. Two great Class 3 hikes and ten miles between the two when the weather turns cold or rain is forecasted for the Red Rock Canyon area. You never want to make this drive for one hike. Jason reported that it started to sprinkle just as they reached their vehicle.
NOTE: For any Lake Mead hike ALWAYS test your handholds before committing to a climb!
