Lincoln County High Point Trip Report

Lilienthal Mountain

I accessed Lilienthal Mountain from Egypt Loop Road on the south side. I climbed from the borrow pit southeast of the peak. All of the land on the north side of the road is marked "Leased land, No Trespassing, Violators will be prosecuted, Patrolled".

I walked an old road up the ridge directly toward the peak, then straight up the southeast face of the mountain. The peak is rocky and there is a BM and an old metal sign with names carved in it. Good view of Lake Roosevelt and quite a few mule deer. On this mild winter, there was barely any snow on the north side and none on the south slopes. I walked south over the smaller hump then back down to my truck.

I crossed a few fences on the climb, so I don't know who actually owns the peak. Elevation gain of 1,100 ft, took about 2 hours including looking around for antlers on the way.
