Paul McClellanFigure 8 hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2015

Paul McClellan

Hiked up the Super Trail down the Old Baldy Trail, forming a "figure 8" and enjoyed 360 degree views from the mountain. It was a sunny and calm day with ideal temperatures. I will return.

Thanks to the people who put in a boot pack! The road was closed for construction a mile or so from the trailhead, but I biked through with no trouble. Nice views of Baboquivari and Madera alluvial fan from the summit. With the softening snow, the run down was epic! Trip report.

Good trail. Nice afternoon hike after driving up mt Lemmon in the morning. This peak was more interesting than the four ultras in southern arizona. This appears to be a very popular hike based on the number of register entries.

Climbed this twice back in the 90's and this would now be my 3rd summit.

Hit the snowline about a mile from the Baldy saddle- and the final ascent to the summit was quite icy and reasonably dangerous.

Pics and commentary are here.

Great day hike with my wife. Via Old Baldy trail.
Plenty of sun and heat, but a nice breeze throughout the day.
Secret to my success... carrying my own shade.
My third trip to the summit. My wife's first trip, unfortunately she had knee pain the whole way down. She is amazing.

Climbed in Fall 2008, I believe. Saw a bear on the way, and tons of bugs at the top.

Climbed with my brother over Christmas vacation the day after Mt. Lemmon. A light dusting of snow/ice up the last part but a very nice and well-built trail. Phenomenal views at the top with the clouds swirling all around us! The next day it snowed about 1-2 feet, so we got up there just in time......

Great hike! Great trail- amazing trail work! A warm December day and nice climbing conditions. Didn't have our trekking poles but my wife & I had no problems- the switch backing makes this 4,000 + ft vertical rise relatively moderate on both the ascent & descent. In fact, we passed 9 hikers & probably four were in their 70s!

A fun but very hot group hike. Arrived at the summit only to be chased away by hordes of gnats. Awesome peak.

Visiting a friend in Tucson, we went and hiked this on a warm day. Calm, sunny and nearly 70 degrees on the summit, with great views up there.

I have admired this peak from a distance for years. It was a joy to finally visit this summit. The views are truly jaw dropping. The wind that day was pretty amazing, too, and also the 84 year old fellow summitting the peak with us, hiking like a 30 year old. I LOVE these fit southern AZ retirees!

My first southern AZ hike (on a nice day anyway), and I was quite impressed! It was in the 30s/40s the entire way up, with a few small patches of snow on the ground and ice in the pines. Besides being a bit hazy, summit views were perfect. Felt easier to hike than the 4000' gain would have you believe!

A perfect day - 103 in Tucson and about 70 on the top of Wrightson when we summited. Took our time and about 60 pics - 4 hrs up and 2 1/2 hrs down. My all time favorite in south AZ.
