Neither the Sierra Club, Desert Peaks Section nor the author hereby make any representations as to the safety of any hiking or driving route described in this guide. Some aspects of hiking, including peak climbing and adverse weather conditions, are potentially hazardous. You should understand that serious accidents occasionally occur during hikes such as those described in this guide and that participants occasionally sustain mortal or serious personal injury. Any person using this guide is responsible for his or her own safety and assumes all risks and accepts full responsibility for any and all damages or injury of any kind, including death, which may result from the use of any route described in this guide.

Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, directions contained in this guide were accurate at the time of printing, but conditions do change. The Sierra Club, Desert Peaks Section and the author recommend that you contact the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, United States Forest Service or other appropriate agency to ascertain current conditions and any possible dangers on the routes described herein before embarking on any route. While this guide contains suggested times for completing each peak climb, different persons hike at different paces and it may take you considerably longer to complete the climb than the time set forth in the guide.
