TJ311Rock & Roll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2010


Came to Phoenix for the Rock & Roll Half Marathon yesterday. Today we hiked to Camelback Summit via Cholla Trail. It rained on us for half mile or so then turned out to be a nice morning. Great views! Did some geocaching on the mountain too.

Did this in the afternoon on a full belly after a big Thanksgiving dinner. Did it in about an hour and fifteen minutes finishing at sunset. Nice leg workout.

This was a great little climb with lots of leg-burning, scrambly bits! I've personally never seen so many people on one mountain before...I made it from TH to summit in 44:18, but a good amount of time was wasted in waiting for the line of people. The trail is very well maintained, but offers a lot of options for going off on your own. It took me over an hour to find a parking spot though, so go early!

BethSCholla and Echo Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2008


Climbed pretty much every week from late May to late Aug last year. Both are nice trails, Echo is steeper and shorter, sometimes tougher to get parking, especially around sunrise. I also did the loop (up Cholla and down Echo) then back around to the car for a bit longer hike, though some of it is on sidewalk!

Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2007


An amazing urban hike & a beautiful little mountain. I climbed it every morning I got the chance while I was in Phoenix; its a must-climb if your in the valley, but show up before sunrise. I personally did the ascent in under 29 minutes one morning, but i suspect it could be done much faster.

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.

I really enjoyed being able to hike up a mountain so close to the city.

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.
