Very nice -

You've done a credit to the peak. I'll be glad to add links to this in the Tucson Mountains page.

Good to see this one!

Great work here and nice photos. I am glad to see this peak because I wanted to climb it when I lived in Tucson but never had info or the time. Maybe I'll make it back someday!

It's a great peak and an adventure to climb! I hope that you do.

What I remember

most about the area are the "Shindaggers." One time I did step
on one directly, and ended up with a spine coming up through my boot. It's all worth it when you come across the Desert Bighorn
sheep that the state of Arizona transplanted to the area. When I see them, it always makes paying state taxes a little less painful. THANKS ROB!!!

Re: What I remember

My first hike in the area was up Pusch Peak with my mom in 1985. We went up the south side through lots of shindaggers and got a bit battered. On the way down we came right next to a herd of about 14 bighorns. It was a magical experience. This was before they vanished from the area, though so they must have all died in the coming years or migrated to a different range.
