Peak 11,085 ft. "Toiyabe Peak", Nye County, Nevada

In Toiyabe National Forest, Elevation = 11,085 ft. (3379 meters)

Toiyabe Peak is an unnamed 2000 ft. prominence peak in the northern part of the long Toiyabe Range in central Nevada. We climbed this in July, 2016 and used the track by Dennis Poulin as a guide which works well. The track can be found on the website. A track by Ken Jones is quite similar. Dennis' track. We followed the track which is 5.4 miles one-way with a gain of about 3800 ft. counting a drop on the summit ridge. Following the track it took us 4 1/2 hours for the ascent and 3 hours down.  On the way down we thought the alternate route shown on the above map with a dashed line would work. It is about one mile versus 2.5 miles to the top using the track. The terrain is steep, but open with no rock bands or other problems.

The above map has a one-kilometer UTM grid using NAD27. Point SW is a switchback in a canyon where one would leave the trail and head up the slope. UTM there is: 483950E, 4334190N, in UTM Zone 11. The gain is about 2000 ft. to the summit on the alternate route. 8/16 RLC
