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.

I lived in Tempe for 4 years in the early '90s but somehow never decided to go climb Camelback.

Finally did so. Pics and Commentary here.

Great hike via Summit Trail! A little steaper then I had originally planned but that made the experience even better. I can't wait to go back and do it again.

Great little hike, great city views. The hike was made more challenging by the crowds of people coming down while I was going up.

Yep, that would be masochistic me, hiking Camelback in the middle of August during the hottest part of the day.

Went for a short jaunt while on vacation. I was lucky to get into the parking area. The Fire Department was on scene and while I was on the summit a rescue helicopter landed and ferried someone off to the hospital. Very nice views. Temps were moderate.

I've climbed it many times, but as someone still learning, I enjoy it throughly every time- total IPod friendly jaunt. 5/7/10 is probably the last time I'll get to climb it during the summer after work, as the rocks at 4:30 in the afternoon are insanely hot in spots.

From the hotel and back. Lots of tourists. Nobody else running it when I was on it. I think I had a good time up and especially down. I can't say I really like blue paint on rocks though.

Nice hike, When I leave home and it's 9 degrees and i drive 11 hours to hike in the high 70s, It's awesome! 40 minutes up and 15 down. Lots of people on the trail. I saw a roadrunner right on top. I went up by way of the Cholla Trail.

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!

Did both ways, Echo Canyon and Cholla. AZ favorite
