we took the blue line on the TOPO, another fun one close to the house. I took some stills and video on the hike up testing a new pole for the go pro not the best but its got good music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLj-xC0b_GU&list=UUaPDKsPvdVj_xFt5yhELTJA
An easy little peak with nice views. Very fast from the parking lot on the other side of FR333 ENE of the summit. There's also a parking lot with a trailhead a bit farther away, to the south.
Parked across the Shallow gully (the saddle between 7020 and the Sandias) and just ran up a make shift hikers trail to the summit. Very quick, maybe 20 minutes. Was planning on doing The Prow after that but...I have to way till August 15 to attempt that. Stupid birds.
Parked the car near Tramway and hiked up a wash until I could scramble up to Point 6820. Then followed the trail north until it linked up with the South Ridge Trail. On the descent I followed the South Ridge Trail down, but continued on the ridge past Point 6820 all the way back to Tramway. Great fun, great views, and a nice little summit despite its small stature!
Summited all the small peaks in this area while conducting a massive geocache raid!
We enjoyed this quick little hike near the end of our day. The views of the Sandia Crest are just mind-blowing, especially with the sun sinking low. Hiking partner: Husband. Dogs: Lady, Bing & Lela.
Took the dog up for a hike. Overcast day but still great views of the rock walls to the east.
