Jow1st of Day  Sucess!

Took Cholla on wonderful 75 degree morning. Not super crowded but not lonely either. Got off trail by mistake twice ending in somewhat sketchy positions. Made good time overall and saw a road runner.

Did this mid day with my dad during a short trip to Phoenix. Doing this in 100+ weather is a unique challenge. I much prefer my cooler mountains. I truly was not prepared for the heat but I persevered.

2nd Climb Mar 30, 2013:
I set out determined to run up Cholla under 20 minutes this time. I was quickly stymied by the hordes of people that I did not encounter the last go around and basically gave up, thinking that it wouldn't happen. When I got close to the summit, I looked at my watch and was shocked to see that I had a chance. I re-doubled my effort and made a HUGE push for the summit. I got to the top and stopped the watch at 19:58 and sat there gasping and grunting for the next few minutes. Brit was supposed to go to the saddle in the same time so I started down for her, but she showed up only a few minutes down. I groaned at having to go back up but I accompanied her to the summit in just over 30 minutes (nice!) and we enjoyed the views for a bit before running back down.

Ran up to the top at sunset via Cholla in 21:38...pushed it pretty good. Haven't done anything like that in a long time. It was a nice follow up after doing the long run/hike up Superstition Peak yesterday. We had a fun time going down in the dark and enjoying the cooler temps. Looking forward to going back and doing it again from the echo side sometime.

Nice day up the trail, high winds obscured the views from the summit. Busy but enjoyable.

Me and my wife were in town and got it done in the morning before we left. Glad we did it instead of sleeping in.

I grew up in the valley so I've done this a few different times. It is a really fun little hike. I'm amazed how it seems to always be crowded and how I always meet people from foreign countries on the top.

Visiting in the Scottsdale area for work, staying at the CamelBack Inn. Couldn't resist the call of CamelBack. Up Cholla trial and down Echo Canyon.

Once a parking spot was secured, the rest of the hike was the easy part. Nice hike although I had a calf muscle that thinks I"m picking on it. Lots of people.

Climbed from the north side with Ezra Danciu and Todd James. Bring plenty of water even early in the morning. Todd ran out and begged some guy for a drink. Hahaha! Awesome view from the top.

I've climbed it nine times during 2000-2009. Always a fun scramble via Echo Canyon.

Hiked up via Echo Canyon in the morning, before the sun made it all the way over the mountain. It's a fun scramble——plenty of boulders and rocks, but nothing too dicey. Awesome desert scenery and great views of the Valley of the Sun from the top.
