The only challenging section is the first part, when you start up on the rocks. It's not getting up that is challenging, it's going down. But, if you find the right way down, it isn't so bad. The knife edge isn't so bad.
very enjoyable ridge scramble and it gives one a cool perspective of Picacho from the summit.
After finishing Picacho, it took no arm twisting at all to get Candace over to summit "Razorback Ridge", too. The southeast summit scramble is just a hoot, short but sweet. I certainly recommend the Hunter Trail for the approach to "Razorback Ridge." I'd been up the Hunter Trail before, but this time we took the Sunset Trail to Picacho and by adding UN 3161 into this mix, we had a lot of elevation gain/loss added to the day.
