Funeral Peak


By: Barbara Lilley


This aesthetic-looking mountain on the west side of the Greenwater Valley road in Death Valley National Park was climbed on November 1 by Gordon MacLeod, Barbara Lilley, and Dolores Holladay. This peak was led (in conjunction with Smith Mtn) in 1973 but rejected for list consideration due to a road that reached within a mile of the saddle north of the peak. However, this road has not been driveable for years and would make a good hiking trail. Its somewhat obscure start is about 11 miles south of the Greenwater-Dante's View road junction. If not used for the ascent, it is THE way to return. Explore and enjoy!
