Griffith Peak 11059
Charleston Peak 11915

Date: 2017/09/27
S Loop TH to Trail Canyon TH (via N Loop Trail): 19.6 miles, 5574 feet
-> w/o Griffith: ~18.9 miles, ~5124 feet
car-to-car (S Loop TH to Trail Canyon TH to S Loop TH): 20.9 miles, 5685 feet

Janet and I happened to be passing through Vegas on our way home so it worked out to hike Charleston Peak. I had tried Charleston earlier this year in May and was forced to turn around due to significant snow as I hadn’t traveled here with crampons and ice axe. Instead I settled for the other peaks Lee and Mummy - that TR can be found here.

Today was a different story: beautiful weather, no snow, and we completed the entire loop together, probably Janet’s hardest day in the mountains ever! :applause: Along the way we met Bill who was tagging the summit for his 60+ ascent. I’ve attached some photos and our GPS track.

My only other comment is that I was attempting to use the summitpost description for the S Loop TH, a usually very reliable resource. However, in this case, it was terribly confusing. In reality the TH and parking are very simple to find and I’ve provided several photos to explain just that.
