Mount Nameless is the 9th highest peak in Western Australia and sits at 1128m asl. The top of the mountain itself is huge and there are kind of 3 peaks that you could go to. The first point is where the radio towers are, this is the true high point. The other is where most cars will drive to to get a view of Tom Price town and there is also a round metal disk embedded in the rock which shows distances to different landmarks. The 3rd point is towards the Nameless Valley and you actually have to walk down for around 300m and then back up to this point. In my experience this 3rd point is the best as no cars can get there and you have a unique view back to the main summit of Mount Nameless.

There are 2 official routes up the mountain. One is the road up where 4WD cars can get up. From the base it is 2.6kms and not really a good way for hiking as cars use this way and it can get extremely dusty. The other way is from the back of the Tom Price caravan park. There are sign posts along the main road just as you get to the caravan park telling you where to turn off. You just follow the signs down a gravel track all the way to the carpark at the bottom. It’s not essential for a 4WD but it does help and if you are worried about your car just park near the caravan park and walk its not that far.

The rocks in this part of the world are some of the oldest in the world – dated to 3.6 Billion years ago.

A woman was recently found dead after she went hiking in the area on a day when it was over 40 degrees and she went at 11am. Please do not be stupid and go at such a time. Heat stress is a real concern and going at such a time endangers yourself and others who may have to come looking for you. There is a big difference between hiking in 40 degrees when the sun is beating down vs 40 degrees when it is dusk so please go an hour before sunset or at sunrise to avoid the heat the direct sunlight will cause. Anytime from May until August is also a great time as temperatures are much more manageable.

From the carpark it is just 2km to the top and 350m elevation gain. Follow the big car path all the way until you see some concrete steps. Go up the steps and along the cliff face. From here you go up the cliff face via some stairs and steep rock (there is a handrail) and you pop out on the ridge. Remember this spot because many people (myself included) go straight past this turn and end up getting lost. If you see the telstra metal sign on the way down then you have gone too far, go back around 30m and take the turn down the rock face.

The views the whole way are spectacular and if you go at sunset the whole sky lights up the most amazing colours.

Once on the summit the views really open up. You can walk around and explore the whole area as the vegetation is very sparse. On one trip to the top I actually found the fossil of a shell inside a rock. I was in disbelief because I was at 1000m asl and Mount Nameless is very far from the ocean. But upon reading up about it the way the Hamersley Range was created was actually when the whole area was under water.

For a fit hiker the hiking route should take around 30 minutes to get to the top. There is a big sign at the bottom that says 4 hours return but this is for people who are extremely slow. The whole way up and back is 4km so if it took you 4 hours you would be going 1km an hour which a 3 year old could do.
