Trip Report

While in the area, and with plenty of time left after climbing Racehorse Peak (and the "Pony" extension), we decided that we might as well bag another unofficial peak near Racehorse Pass. We turned our attention to the straightforward Mount Racehorse - as defined creatively by Bob Spirko and Sonny Bou when they bagged it back in 2014. There really isn't much to say about this minor peak. We simply bashed up its east ridge to the summit, surmounting several easy, blocky cliff bands along the way.
