bighigazRoute Climbed: Hikers Route (Hunter Trail?) Date Climbed: 3 Summers ago...  Sucess!


I climbed it with Eileen Kriter a few summers ago, though I don't remeber the date exactly... I should check my journal...

All I can say is it was HOT, but the view was amazing. Thank goodness for some serious route developing that has been done by previous hikers, cause this is a pretty exposed trail in some spots! All I could think about on the way up was "I wonder if there are any technical climbing routes?!" So much rock, yet I've never heard of any... maybe the rock is too chossy and loose, but it sure is something to see!

Picacho is a fun little hike. I love the steep parts guided by cable and planks. If you choose to go, make sure it's in early February after a wet winter. The wildflowers (golden Mexican poppies and purple lupin) blanket the base of the mountain, and it's absolutely awesome!

I have climbed this peak many times, with my dog as well, and have summited in less than 23 minutes. I have also done the Sunset trail, which many prefer, and have taken 38 minutes to ascend via this route.

This was one insane climb. The trail was so steep. I have never seen a trail steeper. This mountain is a scramble to get to the top. I am not used to the heat, and was burnin up. The sun was pounding on the east side of the mountain and that side was hotter then the west side. As far as the view, there wasnt' much to see. It was just a neet hike.
