Storey County High Point Trip Report
Mount Davidson (7,864 ft)
Date: September 13, 1997
Author: Andy Martin
Mount Davidson is just uphill from Virginia City.
We took the Ophir Grade to a 6,661' saddle, on a road that was barely passable by car.
After this, the road quality deteriorated to 4wd in spots,
and we parked at some radio towers about 1/2 mile NW of the summit.
At the top we found two tin cans joined to form a register.
We had a nice view of the mountains to the East, and the high peaks rimming lake Tahoe.
We took the Jumbo Grade towards New Washoe City and made a nice but windy camp.
