backpack hike ruby dome - August 8, 2009
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.At 11,387 feet, Ruby Dome is the highest summit in the Ruby Mountains in eastern Nevada. The Rubies are dramatic and rugged, with deep glacial valleys, hundreds of lakes and herds of bighorn and mountain goats. We will pack in to a high camp with water, then go cross-country to the peak, packing out on the last day. The route will be strenuous and exploratory with scrambling on high ridgetops and possible exposure.
