*Call for Updates/changes to current DPS Road and Peak Guide
Our new Road and Peak Guide Editor, Jim Morehouse, invites you to share your comments on updates to driving conditions and/or climbing routes for DPS peaks by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. After climbing a peak, simply send in a quick email while things are still fresh in your mind. We would also welcome volunteers to join a DPS Road & Peak Guide Committee to assist with updating the current Guide. Please contact Jim if interested in assisting with this very important project!
Pahrump Point, California, a Section listed peak.
Last light on Pahrump Point (5,740') from the camp in the Chicago Valley. The peak is located northeast of Shoshone, CA off of State Route 178, east of Death Valley National Park and just west of the Nevada state line. Pahrump Point is located in the Nopah Range Wilderness Area administered by the Bureau of Land Management. Detailed information on climbing this peak is contained in the Desert Peaks Section Road and Peak Guide. The photograph was taken by Section member Ron Bartell on a Desert Peaks Section trip with Leaders Daryn Dodge and Kathy Rich in December 2010.
