Overview

Bonelli Peak, via the northeast and north ridges, is a fun hike deep in the remote southwest portion of Gold Butte National Monument. The hike to the summit and back ascends fairly steep and strenuous, but safe, side-ridges to gain the main North Ridge, which is followed south to the summit. Much of the upper ridgelines are rocky, but the more craggy portions can be bypassed on one side or the other.

Presented here are photos of the descent. For a full description of the route, including maps and GPS waypoints, see Bonelli Peak -- Northeast Ridge Route.
