Bridge Mountain, the Red Rock uber-classic, from Yoga Peak

Bridge Mountain is undeniably one of the classic peaks of Red Rock Canyon. A high, stunning sandstone peak with a fun route to a viewpoint that lends justice to the entire NCA.

Myself and the two John's from Vegas set out one morning for a leisurely hike up the standard route of Bridge. In all, the trip was quick, the scenery incredible and the scrambling fun. A couple of nice tinajas were just below the summit, not to mention a lovely hidden ponderosa pine forest. Great stuff, and a terrific peak.
