So over the last few years my wife and I have started getting rental cars and heading up to Mt. Charleston one day of our Vegas trips. I never imagined myself the hiking type but it's pretty awesome getting up there and hearing just the breeze and not much else. We've only done a few different trails but are planning another hike this August. We've stepped it up each time and one thing on my bucket list is to climb a mountain. I have zero mountaineering skills so I had no idea how I would ever do that, up until I realized that you can hike all the way to the Mt. Charleston summit. It's a pretty grueling hike though, some say 8 hours one way, and if we try it my wife is saying she might be more comfortable with a guided hike or tour or something similar. We're still kind of novices and don't know what we don't know. It'd probably be best with a group that knew what they were doing, more so than we do. Firstly, has anyone here ever made a summit hike? And second, does anyone know of anybody offering guided summit hikes? It might not be Everest but it'd still be pretty cool to stand on top and say I made it.
