Do it now!   Sucess!

I followed the route described here by Surgent. Road 4378 was terribly rocky and eroded so I walked an extra mile. The recent Lizard Fire (June 2017) completely burned the upper slopes so that there was no more bush to whack through therefore I would suggest to do Glenn now if you are planning to climb sometime. Views from the top are great. I visited both summits.

Pleasant day, nice views  Sucess!

Took the East/Northeast Ridge as described here. Much brush near the top can be avoided by traversing to the south slightly. Visited both summits.

What Dartmouth Hiker Said  Sucess!

In good conditions this is a moderate to tough day hike mostly along open ridges but brushy and rocky enough to keep things slow... then you hit the really thick stuff at about 7,000 feet. In white-out conditions we relied on the GPS and compass to get to the top and especially on the descent. Without visual cues to guide us down, we started down two wrong ridges before the trusty compass and GPS set us straight again. The weather probably added 1.5-2 hours to our time overall. My thanks to Dartmouth Hiker for the company!

Bushwhacking insanity!  Sucess!

Climbed with Scott Surgent on a day that started out undercast, ended overcast, and was mostly "cast" in the middle. The bushwhacking was among the toughest I've done, and travel past Pt. 6800' is surprisingly disorienting in the clouds. Bring map, compass and GPS if there's any chance you'll be clouded in.

A Coronado 12  Sucess!

This peak was on a list (of course) of the Coronado
Forest units. Bushwacked up east/NE ridge with my
trail loving wife, who kinda tolerated the brush & rocks.

Mount Glenn  Sucess!

Parked at the trailhead on the Stronghold Canyon West trailhead of the Cochise trail (#279). Hiked up a rocky drainage to within 0.4 mi. of the summit, then bushwhacked up a steep, brushy slope to the top.
