I believe you could get a 2 wheel drive in there right now. The BLM has opened an access off the 160 about 1 mile further towards Pahrump This is a more direct route. Requires driving up a sandy wash. Mar 17, 2010

From the nearest parking area next to route 160, it will take just over an hour to walk to Windy Peak. If you have a 4 x 4 it's possible to drive down some tracks to a closer parking area. It's a worthwhile walk-in though, as there's some quality climbing to be had - Jackass Flats, Diet Delight and Blockade Runner etc. Having climbed these classics, Penny Farthing and myself had the time to do the first ascents of "Hugh's Banner" and "Boobs, Bikes & Beer". A grand day out! May 12, 2007
