Has anyone here ever tried climbing Ubehebe Peak from Saline Valley?

Post by hisdudeness48 » Tue Mar 17, 2020 10:21 am

Hello again. I'm leaning towards spending my whole weekend in Saline Valley and I'm getting an itch to try and off-trail it from Saline Valley to Ubehebe Peak. Has anyone here ever tried climbing Ubehebe from the Saline side? Here's an idea for a "trailhead"... https://caltopo.com/m/MFKB. I'm prepared to park lower than that. Anyway, any insight on climbing Ubehebe from Saline Valley would be much appreciated. Thanks.

This is a fun idea which I contemplated when standing atop Ubehebe Peak which I had climbed from the Racetrack Trailhead. I believe this is not only doable but a great way to spend the day. This video shows some great views of possible routes from Saline Valley to the peak. I'd love to read/see your trip report on this adventure.

I appreciate your support in this endeavor! I'm gonna scratch it this weekend and likely come down next weekend instead. If it's even legal to do so.
