|Drove up since I had a nasty cold. My companion was Sacha (redsplashman). |
A year later, on 4-29-13, I hiked up via the Benham trail with Dennis Poulin and Rick Hartman. I felt much better about hiking this one rather than just driving up the thing. Lots of towers on top but that can be expected on some of these mountains that tower above the other stuff.

|Alex Wood||Up Power Line Scar and Ski Descent |
Date Climbed: Feb 26, 2011
|Thought it would be a cool idea to hike up the NE facing powerline scar and ski down. Well, the scar has tons and tons of undergrowth and lots of huge boulders. Aside from a few powder turns, we did not find that it was a great ski descent and had to hike down in most places due to crummy snow conditions|

|Not much for views and yes, the summit is an eyesore. Oh well. Trip Report|

|For the lazy ones, you can drive a car pretty close to|
the top. I'm one of the lazy ones ...
Other decent peaks in the area: Sitgreaves, Kendricks.

|Of the 3 times I have done this hike I have always had lousy weather. Thats probably because I do it in winter. 2 of the 3 times it snowed on me. The views are nice though, but you have to get past the towers.|

|A beautiful area with an appalling summit mess. What an eyesore.|
Peak #3 of a 6 peak weekend. This followed two classic Grand Canyon temple ascents.

|Kind of a steep grunt with minimal views in the upper canyon. The hike up the last part of the road offers some great views in all directions, though.|

|My wife and I hiked the peak from the trailhead near I-40. Great hike, very green in the high canyon. My 'birthday' hike, and a great day all around. Highly recommend the trail.|

|Summitted on Tuesday, September 16, 2003. Quite windy at the top, especially when climbing the Fire Look Out ladder. Used the hike as a warm-up for Humphreys Peak which I summitted the next day.|
I got started a little later than I had hoped, and spent a little too much time at the summitt talking to guy in the look out cabin. I was glad I brought along my headlamp as the sun set before I reached my car.

|My first time up BW....had a great solo day with my young labrador...|
Bit breezy at the top, but it was a warm day and no jacket was required. Rested and ate lunch at the junction of the road, where there are some log benches.
Some snow patches in the shade near the top. Relief for my labrador pup who likes to snowdive!
The box at the top of the LO Tower was locked, but I was still able to climb the stairs and get some great 360 degree views.
I'll add some photos soon...
