WillhiteWeb.com: Hiking, Climbing and Travel
Nevada gets a bad rap when it comes to climbing. Maybe it deserves it, ask most people to name one peak in Nevada and youíll usually get a puzzled look followed by an ďI donít know anyĒ. Even the state highpoint is a minor summit to a higher peak in California. Before you loose all respect for Nevada as a good place to go climb, we find its niche in the climbing world. Nevada has the most peaks with prominence over 2,000 feet. In fact, Nevada holds the most mountain ranges of any state. What these ranges offer is their solitude. That feeling of remoteness you get hiking deep in a wilderness area can be had from your car in Nevada. Itís just remote, thatís why they hide the UFOís there.
