Approaching the summit of Mount Montgomery

Who's ever heard of Mount Schader or Mount Montgomery (not to be confused with Beatty's Montgomery Mountain)? Certainly not me, that is, until DB was perusing topo maps and saw these two, ultra-obscure named peaks outside Pahrump, Nevada. And so we set out to bag them!

Mount Schader was a quick affair, easily reaching the top to find a construction crew up there working on some sort of summit building. From there, we drove on over to the base of Mount Montgomery, another quick affair involving something less than 1,000 feet of gain over easy but steep terrain.

Not the greatest peaks out there, but far better than a day of work!
