Lee Wash

Anyone ever hike through top to bottom? Someday I am thinking a loop with Panamint Dunes and Mill Cr (water) might be neat.
Thanks,
John

Haven't heard of any, but there are a few dry falls that would be difficult to bypass and near impossible to down climb if Rainbow Canyon is anything to base on.
Check out my reports and informative ramblings at http://dvexplore.blogspot.com

I agree with Gowergulch. I have spent quite a bit of time in that vicinity (maybe about 4-5 miles from Lee Wash). The terrain there is either easy, or an all out assault of loose basalt and dryfalls.

Well, I wasn't the only one with that idea! Turns out, SteveH has a new post on his site regarding it. Piques my interest now to make a loop of it from Lee Flat with Panamint Dunes and return via Mill Canyon. Wish I didnt have to wait until November 2017!
