Surprisingly decent route the whole way up - finding the track gets a little tricky when traversing to the south slopes before the final push, and again near the summit. Beautiful area and not well-traveled.
Long day, but there is a trail Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2012
Finally got this peak, with Scott Peavy, Scott Kelley and Ben Stanley. Very demanding hike, lots of rock, but the trail does go all the way up. However, it's easy to lose in places especially near the end.
Rough bushwack up the west side on a sultry overcast
day in August. Did I mention the bad access ?
This was a steep route, and a poor day to
be hiking from 3700 to 6500 feet in AZ. A better route is
rumored to be on the SE side of the peak.
