Description 

SEASONS: Any other time besides summer is probably OK, except the routes (hiking or otherwise) are long and arduous and carrying so much water would make the day harder.

The rock of Pincushion is all limestone. The view and position is breathtaking. While it's only 7000 feet, the approach, climb, and descent will have you feeling the mountain is a bit more alpine than usual.

Getting There 

New recommended approach: Head to the Doral Academy off Paseo Breeze Drive where dirt road starts. Take high clearance 2wd road to base of S Ridge/mountain. About 15-20 minutes.

Pincushion Peak looms north of Red Rock in the La Madre range, and next to "Little Red Rock". Integrity Ridge is at times difficult to distinguish, and other times plainly obvious, as the limestone blends into the other faces in the area. It can be seen nearly anywhere from town. I always wanted to put an adventure route up so people could climb even if the weather did not cooperate with rain....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
