Vic HansonA do over  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2016

Vic Hanson

Hiked from Oak Flat at the end of FR445 (which is a good road from Hwy. 188 until the stream crossing shortly before the TH) on the 123 Trail to the Arizona Trail, then Amethyst Trail, to just below the saddle where it meets the regular trail, then up the rock scramble. Returned down the regular trail to the parking lot, walked the road to the Pigeon Springs TH and took the AZT back to the 123 junction just past Shake Spring and back down 123. Total distance was 11.9 miles with 4492 feet of gain. 123 is very steep, the 1.8 miles up took me an hour.

Had wanted to hike up on the Arizona Trail but was too far for a day hike and didn't want to backpack it so rode my motorcycle up El Oso Rd. from Hwy. 188. A nice fun scramble from the saddle.

There was a lot of snow on sheltered/north-facing parts of the trail, all the way down to near trailhead elevation. The chute to the summit was filled with deep snow in the middle; I tried to avoid post-holing by climbing up the sides, but that involved a lot of exhausting Class 4 moves!

Just getting to the trailhead is fun. It was a slow drive but the road was in good condition. Went up the chute which was a steep and straight forward route.

Spend at lot of time in the Phoenix area and have always wanted to to get up in the Four Peaks but the road in had seemed to been an issue. So we got a Wrangler, not that you need it, this time. Fun half day route.

It was sunny and clear and the views were incredible. Saw snow capped Humphreys in the distance. Well worth the effort for the views.

Hiked this one with my dad. We wore helmets in the chute. Not so bad, the drive in was the worst part.

JSteubsFour Peaks Winter Storm
Date Climbed: Dec 18, 2011
Our group of 7 planned on getting to the summit of Four Peaks but had to call it quits when we decided not to go any further with 3+ feet of snow and we weren't even to the saddle yet. We also had lost the trail because of the snow which had covered it. We were thinking that the summit probably had about 7+ feet of snow and that the chute would have been covered and very dangerous. It would still be a dream to do it in the Winter

Hike is great. Climbing can be difficult and cold in windy conditions.

The chute still had a lot of snow which made this a very interesting hike. Looking forward to attempting the other three hopefully in the near future.

Third time summiting Browns Peak. Exciting (and a bit unnerving) as always!

WaterGuyMain Chute  Sucess!

WaterGuy

Did this when I was 13. Camped at the saddle and the next morning me and some fellow scouts started climbing the chute without really thinking what we were doing. After some scrambling we were able to make it to the top but were a bit worried about going back down the chute. An adult leader followed us up and we were able to find a round about way back to the saddle without going down the saddle. I remember that I was a bit scared but that I also had a blast doing it.
Did it on Nov. 1999

radracerTraverse 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 16, 2010
I've climbed Brown's peak a few times. My brother and I tried to traverse all 4 peaks last year, but ran out of water on peak 3. This time we each started out with 170oz water and made it. Caution: the area between peak 2 and 3 is the most difficult. Do not attempt if you are not able to perform several pull-ups. Great to remember, but I will not try it again.

Excellent views. My first Arizona summit. Snow on the northeast slopes. None in the scree chute. I had the entire mountain to myself. Rewarding hike/climb.

I know Humphreys is higher, but IMO Browns was much more satisfying. The scree chute is not fun, but not overly terrible and not too long. Not sure I'd want to try it with snow or ice. Someday I would like to try the traverse, probably in March or April before it starts getting too hot.

Climb went really fast, and the rock was much more solid than I expected. The chute would be a little more interesting if there were other folks in it at the same time.
