South route via the Finger Rock Canyon. Quite a variety of flowers in bloom, especially in the first 2000 feet of elevation gain. Very pleasant temperature on the summit.

Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2012


Started before sunup to avoid the heat, which was in the 90s already. Made top in 4 hours, down in 3. Great hike, steep but never too bad, and amazing views from the overlook. Tagged about 6 different rocks and hilltops to be sure of "summitting" properly. My first really long hike in the Catalinas.

Hands down, this is one of my favorite hikes in the Tucson area. I love the diversity of plant life, from saguaro at the bottom to ponderosa pine at the top. The views from the overlook near the summit are just obscene. Enjoyed lunch up there, then headed back down into dreadful (for me) heat. Poppies were blooming like crazy!

this is such a great training hike....after 10 weeks hiking in the Balkans, it was a breeze and felt great, despite the heat!

On aborted first try got lost by dropping below the trail,
but have hiked it 3 times since. The Kimball Kings are impressive - I think Jerry Schuster hiked Kimball 50+ times ?

When I lived in tucson that was my favorite hike... did it 20+ times to the top and hundreds of times part way, just for the workout. Best day was doing it three times in 13hours, 20 minutes. I hope to repeat that effort in January 2009... my sixtieth year celebration.

No doubt a leg-burner, but a beautiful hike. Going from saguaros to pines is a sweet experience.

Date Climbed: Apr 5, 1995


I was checking out the results of the flooding
that occurred in 1993. These are some awesome
mountains due north of Tucson. The Pusch Ridge
Wilderness had a large herd of bighorn sheep back
in the 1990s. Too bad I didn't capture one on camera.
