Date Climbed: Dec 1, 2012


Led this as part of a three day with Baboquivari, Stud Mountain, and Little Picacho when our attempt to climb Cerro Pinacate was shut down by "security concerns".

There's a trail all the way to the top and since several of us had been there before we tried to descend the gully to the west of the peak to make things more interesting. It's slightly brushy that way...

The hike on the ridge to the summit was full of sun and awesome views. Perfect. Estes Canyon Trail in the evening is a nice end to the hike.

Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2009


Temps in the 80s made the hike a bit warm, but comfortable with the breeze, plenty of water and sunscreen. Panoramic views and vibrant colors, plus the cacti in bloom, made this one a treat. Will definitely be back to the monument.

oldadit100 mile view  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 23, 1999


Hiked standard Bull Pasture trail with my wife.
This peak gets a lot of DPS traffic, since it is on their list.
From the top I think we saw Mount Lemmon, 115 miles away.
Jonathan de Ferranti's computer panorama from Lemmon suggests
that this view is possible on a clear day.

My girlfriend Jan and i tackled this on a Spring Break vacation. Much easier than i thought. A well-cairned trail all the way to the top. Beautiful scenery and bearable air temps. It's a Desert 98 peak !
