Peak 6660 (Antelope Twins South) is one of two humps of identical height located on the southeast side of the Antelope Valley and just south of the bridge crossing of Antelope Creek on Antelope Creek Road. It is best to climb both of these peaks together since they are close neighbors. This area is a mix of public and private land so be careful how you climb these two peaks. USGS Grouse

The Climb

From the connecting saddle with Antelope Twins North, scramble southwest up a somewhat tedious, complicated face with rocky outcrops to skirt or navigate to reach the [false] northeast summit. Continue southwest to the higher (by 15 feet) true summit of Antelope Twins South. This peak had a torn-down cairn so I rebuilt it. The sagebrush on the northeast face of Antelope Twins South is thicker and rougher than the easier sagebrush on the southwest face of Antelope Twins North.

The Descent to Antelope Creek Road, Class 2

Descend down the northeast face back to the connecting saddle. From the saddle, follow a good cattle trail northwest down the gully to Antelope Creek Road at the base of the gully.
