La Madre Mountains Wilderness High Elevation Perspective | La Madre Mountains Wilderness, Nevada

Standing on a high point just West of the Devil’s Slide (also referred to at the La Madre Mountain Scar), I was able to view the exact spot where the Southern Pass emerged from between the La Madre Mountain and El Padre Mountain cliffs originating in Calico Basin. At the same time I was able to look West along the top of the Keystone Thrust to see where the Western Approach originating in the Willow Springs area of Red Rock Park emerged at the summit of El Padre Mountain. Finally, looking North I was able to see the entire Northern approach route originating at the intersection of Kyle Canyon Road and Harris Springs Road. In short, this was an experience in “connecting the dots” in the La Madre Mountains Wilderness. Route Details: 21 mi / 4500-7800ft; *Some Road, Mostly Wilderness* Click image or title above for more…
