|As seen from the East Face route|
Today (9-26), Kathy and I followed the East Face route to the peak. It's a fun, class 3 scramble with plenty of twists and turns. We placed additional cairns on the route.
I brought up an ammo box and a new sign-in book. This is a popular peak and the old sign-in book was in bad shape.
It's still very hot in Red Rock. I recommend getting a very early start to beat the heat and bring lots of water. In fact both Monday and Tuesday might bring record high temperatures.
My rant: I visited the 23 million dollar Visitor Center at Red Rock Canyon. What does 23 million dollars get you? Bad information. Here's a photo of an exhibit. Notice the listed elevation of Bridge Mountain. It's only off by 600+ feet. They list Bridge as 7661 feet. Not bad for a BLM employee. I am surprised they knew the name of the mountain. Below is a photo I took of the exhibit:
