Hollow Rock Peak | Rainbow Mountain Wilderness, Nevada

Hollow Rock Peak | Rainbow Mountain Wilderness, Nevada

Hollow Rock Peak is the second to the Southernmost peak in the Rainbow Mountains with South Peak just beyond. It’s a great 5-mile round trip and offers climbing levels from class 2-3 to class 5, depending on the route you choose (see below). And the calico boulders, pinnacles, cliffs, ledges and scattered bonsai-like bushes and trees make this an adventure of wonder. Spectacular views include the Las Vegas Valley and Strip, Frenchman Mountain, Muddy Mountains, Virgin Mountains (dim, distant), Gass Peak, the Sheep Range, Blue Diamond Mountain, portions of Red Rock Canyon, Calico Basin and La Madre Mountains, Mt. Charleston Wilderness, Lovell Canyon Area, Potosi Mountain, Lake Mojave (or Havasu?), and too many additional points of interest to mention here. Route details: 5 mi RT/ 5,470ft > 5,960ft; Mostly Good Trails, Some Class 3 Climbing. Best time of year for this adventure: Spring or Fall. Click image or title above for more…
