Three shorter but highly enjoyable summit scrambles on the south side of Jubilee Pass Hwy, 178 in the south end of Death Valley National Park.

Straightforward.
Lots of info out on Ibex Peak 4751" standard route. Most cars can do the 1.5 mile approach road. Small camping area at end but slopey.

Then onto the north ridge of Jubilee Mountain 2526'. Take the climber's right of the two north ribs up for good class 2 scramble opportunity on OK rock, descend the climber's left rib.

Finished on a little thing, Virgin Springs Peak 807', for some close up views of Death Valley and the Amaragosa River valley:
