TonkaDraw and Drama  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2013

The drama comes from the visit to the crash site, very sad and erie. Weather was perfect and we spent an hour and a half roaming around and hitting the high points. Crowds could have been worse.

Fantastic scramble except for the crowds. Saturday, perfect temp, just after the holidays, dry. Oh well. Just a bit sore from this one (I'm 59) because I haven't done anything this strenous in over 8 months but WELL WORTH THE VIEW!

Not so tough as the page makes it sound,I think, but a lot of fun...except for the huge crowds.

Standard Siphon Draw route. Thought it was a great idea to hike this in Aug...needless to say it was like a million degrees and I was the only one out there. Great hike!!

I can't say much else other than it was out of this world. The landscape was just ridiculous-- made me think about Wiley Coyote and Roadrunner. Awesome cacti; fun trail; incredible rock formations; 3000 ft elevation gain. Also, the view from the unnamed peak is way better than the flatiron. I'm glad that I spent my one day in phoenix doing this... Overall, it was an experience I will never forget.

I have climbed to both flatiron and no name peak 4 times as of this witting. Very rewarding hike/ climb but quite strenuous. I take my 10 year old on this each time I go.

Been meaning to visit my friend MF in Phoenix for years. Unfortunately, the Easter traffic from Vegas was a little thick.

MF showed me the route from the restaurant; this route avoids the day use fee at the park. He had been up Flatiron about 25 times.

I was sick, but we still made it in 1 h 25 m.

Wonderful flowers -- phacelias, lupines, hyacynths, penstemon, poppies...poppies will make them sleep...

I've done this hike before, up to the unamed peak at least, so I knew what to expect on the front side. However I've always been tantalized by Superstition Peak lingering just out of reach so the East. I descided to start early, travel alone, and push hard to hit that peak. For the record, hiking round trip to Superstition Peak from Siphon Draw is not a hike for the faint of heart. Enjoy!

Started hiking Siphon Draw around 6am and probably could have started earlier. Pretty damn hot by the time I finished around 11am and there were people just starting out!

The view from the Flatiron was great and the scramble to the higher peak just as good! Amazing views and a surprisingly steep hike.

Absolutley amazing. I rode a bicycle to the base of this mountain from Los Angeles. Its an easy scramble to the top (provided you bring a lot of water). The views are outstanding. Easily the best view in Phoenix.

First mountain I ever climbed. My brother and I camped on the flatiron, with great views of Phoenix below. A wonderful climb!

Great hike. I was doing a solo drive between grad school and work, and this was right outside Phoenix. And they had FREE SHOWERS at the base! Arizona state parks are where it's at. This also started about 3 days of fantastic wandering up the Salt River and doubling back west, eventually making Flagstaff.

Great hike! Not as beautiful and green as last year, but still worth it. I recommend going as earlier in the morning as possible, the trail gets extremely busy by 10am. You want to be down by then.

This was my first climb in the Superstitions. It was outstanding! We wrapped around the base of the Flatiron and only climbed the last 100 yards of the Siphon Draw. Enjoyed the climb down the Siphon Draw.
