Shoeless FKT? Forgot shoes, ran up anyway  Sucess!

Drove down from Gilbert and as we were pulling up, I realized I left my shoes. I started trying to fashion some protection against the rocks and heat out of a Mike and Ike's box, but then my wife gave me her insoles from her shoes, so I put those in my socks and away we went running to the top! It was rocky and hot, and my feet were fairly toast by the time we were done, but it was totally worth it!

Evan and I  Sucess!

My son Evan (Lcpl USMC) and I had a perfect day with about a 100 other people. Shared fun, plenty to go around.

Picacho  Sucess!

Pretty fun, although all the cables and fences are kind of lame. The summit could be attained easily without them and would be far more meaningful...

Fun Scramble  Sucess!

Took advantage of a "cold spell" and did the peak on a whim as I had a half day off. Temperatures were still in the low 80s though and it felt too hot to do Razorback Ridge as well but will come back to do it.

Easy fun  Sucess!

Something to do while waiting for the snow up high to cook down. A fun climb, especially if you try not to touch the cables. Trip report, though it's mostly about getting spanked by Mount Lemmon the day before...

Did this peak on a weekday so it wasn't too crowded. Hiked up from the Hunter Trail.

the gate attendent told me it was getting late for a hike to the summit to start at noon and that the average hiker did it in 4 hours..

Sunset trail with UN 3161  Sucess!

Oy, the heat almost killed us, but three Coloradans took the Sunset Trail to the summit of Picacho, then looped over the saddle to UN 3161 which has a divine little knife edge and summit scramble...then we staggered back through the heat to the car. What a wonderful day! Partner: Candace & Dave.

Love the use of unnatural anchored wire and planks. Awesome

Short and steep  Sucess!

End of September, a little hot but not too bad. Just before the busy season. Nice hike, right off the highway.
