Route Climbed: Echo Canyon, Cholla Date Climbed: Too many to count  Sucess!

I'm one of those 5 times a week guys. Best place to watch a sunset in Phoenix is from the top of Camelback, and I try to catch it everyday after work. Good thing we get more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Lots of people on the trail, but I really enjoy the company. Gone to the top probably thousands of times, but I've never once regretted going.

Route Climbed: Echo Canyon Date Climbed: Oct 27, 2003  Sucess!

The heat finally broke in Phoenix this past weekend and its was perfect weather for Camelback. 75 Degrees and sunny...My first time back to the mountain in six months. The trail had the usual cast of characters - out of towners, guys carrying 6 month olds in baby carriers (I even saw another guy literally carrying his 7 or 8 year old son up a steep section on his back) plus the usual camelback 5 time a week crew. That being said, the trail was not overly crowded like it will be later in the year and it was a very pleasant hike to the top. Highly recommended - go now b4 it gets too crowded!

Route Climbed: every time up Echo Cyn... once from the east side Date Climbed: Hundred times+  Sucess!

My favorite hike and my main means of keeping fit. Yes it's crowded... people talking on cell phones... major meat market... people smoking while hiking... out-of-towners clearly in over their heads... people wearing Keds sneakers... but it's a blast. On a clear day one can pick out peaks as far south as Picacho near Tucson.

Route Climbed: whatever the normal trail is Date Climbed: January of 94 or 95  Sucess!

Did this with my brother who was at grad school in Phoenix at the time. Saw a lady get helicoptered out in a litter when she injured her ankle halfway up. Tons of people. Easy hike.

Did this mountain with my freinds Nathan and Leah. The trail was extreamly steep, but very short. It is a very fun climb, but too many people. January is a really good time to beat the heat.
