Shoshone's Eagle Mountain

Where: Amargosa Valley, California
When January 2004
TOPO: Here

The summit crag

Eagle Mountain is a terrific, little mountain. Situated just outside of Shoshone, California, the mountain is an isolated peak jutting 1,500 feet out of the flat Amargosa Valley. Its nearest mountain neighbor is perhaps 8-10 miles away.
Sublime views north

The hike was short and fun, with several interesting class 3 scrambling sections. Nice exposure in places, the views from the top were among the best in the Mojave Desert.

And even back in January 2004, bogus names were the norm...
