Route Climbed: every time up Echo Cyn... once from the east side Date Climbed: Hundred times+
My favorite hike and my main means of keeping fit. Yes it's crowded... people talking on cell phones... major meat market... people smoking while hiking... out-of-towners clearly in over their heads... people wearing Keds sneakers... but it's a blast. On a clear day one can pick out peaks as far south as Picacho near Tucson.
