Since Boundary Peak straddles the border between Nevada and California it can be debated if it is truly a Nevada Peak, but it is accepted as being the high point of Nevada. (The highest point totally within the state is Wheeler Peak near Ely.)

What cannot be debated is that it is a great desert peak climb complete with expansive views including bristlecone pines and often, wild horses. At 13,140 feet in height it is on par with many Sierra Peaks and is a tremendous viewpoint looking far to the east over the seemingly-endless basins and ranges of Nevada.

Our route is primarily a use trail, or no trail at all, with talus hopping and easy scrambling.
