Hi Mark,

In two months, Tikaboo Peak will still be covered in snow. The first part is strenuous to climb in summer with steep incline and the loose shale. It would be miserable to climb in snow and I'm sure you would lose the trail if it's covered. On the bright side, you wouldn't need to carry as much water because you can melt the snow!

The road out there is in good shape until the last few miles (6K). Then you would want 4WD. It gets dicey at: 37 18.904'N, 115 17.826'W

I wouldn't think about making a trip up until the end of May or June...

I hope this helps,
