Camelback  Sucess!

Climbed from the north side with Ezra Danciu and Todd James. Bring plenty of water even early in the morning. Todd ran out and begged some guy for a drink. Hahaha! Awesome view from the top.

I've climbed it nine times during 2000-2009. Always a fun scramble via Echo Canyon.

Camelback  Sucess!

Hiked up via Echo Canyon in the morning, before the sun made it all the way over the mountain. It's a fun scramble——plenty of boulders and rocks, but nothing too dicey. Awesome desert scenery and great views of the Valley of the Sun from the top.

Cholla Trailhead  Sucess!

I lived in Tempe for 4 years in the early '90s but somehow never decided to go climb Camelback.

Finally did so. Pics and Commentary here.

Awesome Hike!  Sucess!

Great hike via Summit Trail! A little steaper then I had originally planned but that made the experience even better. I can't wait to go back and do it again.

Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Great little hike, great city views. The hike was made more challenging by the crowds of people coming down while I was going up.

Camelback  Sucess!

Yep, that would be masochistic me, hiking Camelback in the middle of August during the hottest part of the day.

From Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Went for a short jaunt while on vacation. I was lucky to get into the parking area. The Fire Department was on scene and while I was on the summit a rescue helicopter landed and ferried someone off to the hospital. Very nice views. Temps were moderate.

Echo and Cholla  Sucess!

I've climbed it many times, but as someone still learning, I enjoy it throughly every time- total IPod friendly jaunt. 5/7/10 is probably the last time I'll get to climb it during the summer after work, as the rocks at 4:30 in the afternoon are insanely hot in spots.

Hiked while in town on business  Sucess!

From the hotel and back. Lots of tourists. Nobody else running it when I was on it. I think I had a good time up and especially down. I can't say I really like blue paint on rocks though.

1st hike in AZ  Sucess!

Nice Hike  Sucess!

Nice hike, When I leave home and it's 9 degrees and i drive 11 hours to hike in the high 70s, It's awesome! 40 minutes up and 15 down. Lots of people on the trail. I saw a roadrunner right on top. I went up by way of the Cholla Trail.

Rock & Roll  Sucess!

Came to Phoenix for the Rock & Roll Half Marathon yesterday. Today we hiked to Camelback Summit via Cholla Trail. It rained on us for half mile or so then turned out to be a nice morning. Great views! Did some geocaching on the mountain too.

Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Did this in the afternoon on a full belly after a big Thanksgiving dinner. Did it in about an hour and fifteen minutes finishing at sunset. Nice leg workout.
