I hiked this route on 9/23/17 and documented the mileage at 3.61; my hiking partner recorded 3.69. I have seen other trip reports/trail blogs with the mileage around 5.0, but I believe it to be shorter. The elevation gain listed here is correct, it is steep with the majority of gain coming between the saddles, about 1mile and on the last 1/2mile return. The road to the trailhead is in good shape, but high clearance advisable. The trail itself is easy to navigate, but there is quite a bit of exposure and a few spots where the track angle has slumped so be watchful of your footing. I recommend trekking poles. The views are quite spectacular and I highly recommend this hike!
Tecuya Moutain Ridge Road was closed for the winter (even though there is currently no snow anywhere in the area) so I followed the cross country route taken by Bob Burd to get up to the road. This was my last peak of the day after Caliente, Peak, & McPherson making for a long day with lots of driving.
perfect conditions -came up from Mil Portrero with Jim and two dogs - my dog Liza is 14yr old shep mix - in great shape and maybe oldest dog to summit?
Combined this one with Tecuya and some snow. Fabulous east face, there are also mines further to the North.
Nice hike from Eagle Rest Peak wtih Augie (Mountain Impulse). The fun started during the cross-country descent of the west ridge. As a result of the heavy brush, I led the group into a southwest chute that required some cl.3 downclimbing, something that the third member in our group didn't have experience with.
Came over on ridge from Eagle Rest Peak with Tom Becht and Bill. There are some major ups and downs along this route to Antimony.
