Ruby Dome is the highest peak in the Ruby Mountains and Elko County standing at 11,387+ft. The route is approximately 4.7 miles and climbs 4,865' starting at Griswold Trailhead. The trail leads to Griswold Lake on a well-traveled trail with cairns dispersed intermittently after 2 miles. Griswold Lake is 3.3 miles and about a 2700' climb from the trailhead. The remainder of the route does not have a well-traveled trail but there are cairns to follow on top of the saddle on the final push to the summit.
