Ascent Trip Report

The first couple miles was a relatively easy hike, unexpectedly shaded and cool for central Arizona. Then the fun began. After a brief but strenuous hike to the base of a prominent crack, the route goes straight up the crack involving class 3+ to 4 scrambling, but the worst part was that there were many loose rocks that easily could be dislodged and hurt or kill people below (yes people have died here). So be VERY careful, and go in small groups that stay close together so the rocks can't pick up enough speed to do major harm. If you see others below you when you are descending, please wait until they pass to continue down.

When you get to the summit, the view is incredible!
