Gass Peak

Gass Peak west face.

Directly north of Las Vegas is Gass Mt.
Zdon describes the hike as five miles roundtrip but due to a washed out road the saddle starting point is unreachable. Hiking in from the NW, an 8 mile roundtrip might be expected.
A hard cold wind hit us as we gained the north ridge and drove us off the mountain.
