We hiked up the Old Baldy Trail, summitted Wrightson and then Ian (a wonderful peak in its own 'right'... I wish my camera hadn't crapped out on me, or I'd have submitted an SP page...). After that, we used the Super Trail to return to Josephine Saddle and we hiked back to the TH back on the Old Baldy Trail. A wonderful hike with a completely different character from our climbs of Wasson and Baboquivari on the previous two days.

Had good pics but I thought some punk in Tuscon stole my camera out of my car when I was mailing off packages!! I got a phone call from the hotel and they had found it. Thank God.



As for the hike itself, it was surprisingly easy. There was ice on the northern switchbacks near the summit but not on the south. I went there to hike the mountain again two days later only to find it covered in snow and being hit by a number of thunderstorms. No trip to Tucson would be complete without this climb.

this is one of my favorite mountains in the tucson area, been up on top with t-storms all around and each one a discrete mass of black clouds and lightning over the sonoita plains, its wonderful.

climbed once barefoot after my barefoot ascent of crough patrick in ireland. had to put shoes on for the return trip. rewarding.

This was my first real mountain climb. Went with a couple buddies from Arizona. Hiked up to the top and spent the night at the saddle below the summit. Clear day gave us great views from the summit.

Fresh off my weeklong peakbagging trip in Colorado, this hike was a pleasant and easy change of pace. Raced up the trail and summitted in just over 2 hours. The weather was sunny and clear (even in the afternoon) unlike my hikes in colorado the week prior. It was so nice not to have to run from a storm.

Hiked up the Old Baldy trail. This is a great way to escape the southern AZ heat. Great views too.
