Suicide Route  Sucess!

can anyone say brutally hot... We started at 5 in the evening and climbed suicide 5.5, to summit a little under 2 hours later. Then we continued to scramble in hopes of finding the true summit. To bad it got dark and we hard to do a rappel down a random gully. Dont get off route or lots of bad rock awaits you.

Challening, but worth it  Sucess!

This was a great climb-crowded, yes, but worth the hassle. I was not prepared for the continuous upward climb, but it made my success even sweeter.

Steep but fun!!  Sucess!

Climbed it with my wife in the middle of the afternoon. Very fun trail but lots and lots of people. Only our second day in Phoenix. Probably going to make this one a weekly ritual.

Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Too crowded. It is an interesting hike, but there are too many people on this trail. Probably a super early morning start would be better. It has few very exciting sections.
Done this hike many times

Good fun for an Oregonian!  Sucess!

This was a pretty fun little hike. Went up the 'easy' Cholla Trail way. No problem for an out of towner like me from Oregon. It was nice not to have to push through a snow pack or mud and rain. Or scramble across cold wet rocks. I'll do it again.

The first of several hikes to the top of Camelback, the Phoenician's local equivalent to the Empire State Building. Beautiful views of the desert and a bird's eye view of the city. Classic "man vs. nature" stuff here. Lots of fun!

Another favorite from my childhood  Sucess!

I climbed Camelback two or three times with my dad in the mid-80s. I remember enjoying the long hike (at least it felt long to an 8 year old), and the sections of rock slab that made for some fun climbing. I actually did my first bouldering at Camelback as well.

Route Climbed: Echo Canyon Date Climbed: January 10, 2005  Sucess!

The climb is longer than it looks. I've never seen so many people on one trail. It seemed like a lot of students from ASU, tourists, and trophy wives from Scottsdale use the mountain as a stairmaster.
