Another winter conditioning hike.  This was my 2nd trip up Frenchman (1st here) and my first trip to the subpeaks.

4.8 Miles today with 2700 feet of gain.

Trailhead was the apex of Lake Mead Blvd as it headed east of Vegas.  One other car there when I left, but there would be a half dozen when I got back.  (There was a meetup group hiking today)

Starting up the access road for the telecom towers on the summit.  Still lots of broken glass near the trailhead.

Peak 3858.  A steep but simple class 2 scramble from the saddle.  Took about 10 minutes get to the peak.
