Early morning sun

Approaching the base

Hill 4348 is above us. We walked up this slope then across toward the main range crest, seen way above

Slightly closer; we went up the slopes at left

Looking back at Hill 4348

The summit is seen at left. At right is the false summit we'd been seeing all day from below

We got through the first false summit rocks and now there's the true top up ahead

From the top, a view west toward Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the new bridge spanning the chasm

A look back at the range crest we just came up, including the rocky false summit

North view, with Arch Mountain behind me

Northwest view, with Scott Peavy and Fortification Hill behind him
