Pahrump Point, California, a Section listed peak.


Last light on Pahrump Point (5,740') from the camp in the Chicago Valley. The peak is located northeast of Shoshone, CA off of State Route 178, east of Death Valley National Park and just west of the Nevada state line. Pahrump Point is located in the Nopah Range Wilderness Area administered by the Bureau of Land Management. Detailed information on climbing this peak is contained in the Desert Peaks Section Road and Peak Guide. The photograph was taken by Section member Ron Bartell on a Desert Peaks Section trip with Leaders Daryn Dodge and Kathy Rich in December 2010.
