Ideal conditions - started off cloudy at or below 60 degrees. Nice breeze. Dry trail. Large group of us. Epic little peak!

I finally hiked this peak after so many years of putting it off. Tried in January 2009 and bailed due to time. Scrambly and loose in spots, but it went quick, and the views were amazing! Glad I did it.

I really enjoyed this one. Nice scramble up high through the rocks. It was a nice clear day with outstanding views from the summit. Who dragged the bench up to the top? Several other parties on the trail so no solitude.

Fun hike and route up Picketpost Mountain. I thought that it resembled a fortress from below.

It was a little icy as we negotiated the draw - definitely have to pick your way through!

oldaditValentines Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2010


Climbed with my wife on Valentines Day. Several other parties
on the trail. It is pretty easy to get a bit off route
on this one. Many, many entries in the register at top, mostly
from the Phoenix area. Someone should put some xeroxed AZ COHP
lists in the mailbox - folks who can climb this one can probably
handle that list.

Way cool hike. Nice route up through the rocks and great views in all directions. Clear and windy with good visibility. Pretty hot by the end of it, though

Climbed Picketpost from the standard trail route. A bit over-ducked, with spraypainted targets about every 10 feet. Full-size mailbox for the summit register, apparently previously owned by a local resident.

Hiked this one with Whereveriroam from Arizonahikers.com. Flowers were starting to be in bloom and the desert was green. Very beautiful hike. Sprinkeled on us a few times as well. A wonderful view of the Superstition Mountains from the summit.
