The west face of Bare Mt. from #95. A marble quarry and the town of Carrara were here from 1913 to 1925. More enduring is the Carrara Formation which has something to do with shale, limestone, and trilobites.

The approach route up the NE canyon. The Bare Mt. climb was the most strenuous in the Beatty region, taking 7 hours from truck to summit to truck. Memorizing the ascent route on the way up is a necessity for getting back down.
