North Gully  Sucess!

Fantastic hike and great scenery. The desert is very lush and dense here. I enjoyed the scramble and really like the final part up to the summit where you are surrounded by walls and spires. Outstanding views from the summit.

Ragged it is.  Sucess!

Fun, off the beaten path, cactus attacking, rock crumbling route. Climbed with Sarah Simon, my girl and Surgent. I'm only bleeding from 6 spots on this desert climb.

North Gully  Sucess!

Wow, I really enjoyed this beautiful mountain and this fantastic route! The day started beautiful, though it did cloud up quite a bit as the day went on. (Admittedly, however, this kept temperatures under control...) Sadly, Scott had to turn back due to a bum knee, but Tony, Krista and I continued on to enjoy the delightful scramble to a fantastic summit!

Ragged Top Loop  Sucess!

Hiked up the South Gully to the summit, down the North Gully and looped back to the truck. Great views- would be a wonderful hike when the Ironwood trees are blooming. Trip log at:

Wrong side ?  Sucess!

Nick Scouras and I hiked up the south side, up an
obvious big cleft. Might call it third class ?
Scenic top.

North Gully  Sucess!

Hiked up to geocache GCCCB8 via the north gully. Arrived without any route information, but quickly caught on that the gully was the only practical way. Final push to the top was a fun scramble.

North Gully  Sucess!

Hiked and bushwacked our way up the North Gully. Quite straightforward if you stay in the main gully and do not bear right. The summit block was rewarding with one class 3 move to gain it. With all the reports of Desert Bighorn sheep around, we were disappointed to not see a single one. Make sure you do an intentional offset when heading back to your car (compass bearing or GPS works too) because the desert scrub is so tall you cannot see it, the parking lot, or the road.
