Livermore Open Summit Dates
« on: March 07, 2017, 02:58:00 PM »
Anyone have any idea when the open dates to climb Mt. Livermore are in 2017? I can't find the info online. I even emailed the contact their website gave but got no response.

Also has anyone gone to an open weekend? How was the experience?

PM Homer Wilson. I think he has those dates, as we are trying to do one ourselves.

I attended the last two; it's a great place to climb if you like cactus.  ;D

There's plenty of camping space near the visitor center, which has a kitchen and bathroom with freezing showers.  Since I don't have 4WD or high clearance, I rode my mountain bike up (through multiple water crossings) to the trail-head for Livermore, Richman, Whitetail, and Pk 7320.  Only Livermore has a trail; everything else is a bushwhack.  I found the events to be lively, but not at all crowded.  Seems like most people head towards Livermore, but there are other areas that you could have all to yourself.
