Fletcher Peak from Robbers Roost | Spring Mountains, Nevada

There is a little-known canyon between Robbers Roost and Fletcher Peak in the Mt. Charleston Wilderness of the Spring Mountains, Nevada. The canyon is bordered by majestic cliffs and is a climate zone unto itself populated by a forest at its base that in places grows up the solid cliff walls. At the top of the steep avalanche slopes there is a far more gentle, forested ridge continuing upward and finally connecting with the North Loop Trail about 1/4th mile before the unmarked turn-off to Fletcher Peak.

Robbers Roost and Beyond | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Robbers Roost, located on Hwy 158 just above Kyle Canyon, is a world class rock climbing destination. The mile-long impressive wall of limestone cliffs can be approached via a short 1/4th mile trail which begins on Hwy 158. The trail ends just beyond a huge limestone cave. Here one can continue to ascend a slot opening in the cliff wall by bouldering up approximately 100 yards of huge boulders that are thought to be the collapsed roof of an ancient limestone cave. The views from both the base of the cliffs and above are spectacular. Route details: 5 mi / Approx. 7,914 > 8,500ft **Mostly Wilderness** Click image or title above for more…
