Nice day, lots of hikers for a weekday, but better than last time I was in Phoenix, when I couldn't even find a place to park.

This is one heck of a great after-meeting slog. After a day of sitting on a Canadair Regional Jet then presenting to potential clients, I headed out to summit this peak via the Echo Canyon Trail. I am an extremely heat intolerant person and the evening heat was torturous. I was overjoyed when the sun finally went down, which cooled the temperature a bit. I don't know how people live in Phoenix in the summer... Still, this is a great urban after work / meeting hike.

Can't call yourself an AZ hiker if you don't hike
this extremely popular peak and nearby Piestewa Peak

Did Camelback 12 times in one day over 14 hours in late February as part of training for Rim-Rim-Rim in GC. That's 15700 feet elevation in one day.

A friend, my wife, and I climbed up this gorgeous peak during a sunny morning, the day before a mutual friend's wedding. It was a good workout, and well worth the trip.

Date Climbed: May 14, 2007


can anyone say brutally hot... We started at 5 in the evening and climbed suicide 5.5, to summit a little under 2 hours later. Then we continued to scramble in hopes of finding the true summit. To bad it got dark and we hard to do a rappel down a random gully. Dont get off route or lots of bad rock awaits you.

This was a great climb-crowded, yes, but worth the hassle. I was not prepared for the continuous upward climb, but it made my success even sweeter.

Climbed it with my wife in the middle of the afternoon. Very fun trail but lots and lots of people. Only our second day in Phoenix. Probably going to make this one a weekly ritual.
