Ascent Trip Report

Witness to Scott Peavy's historic completion of the 73 AZ P2Ks! Congrats Scott.

We followed an old miner's trail that comes up the east faces, then easy cross country to the top. Two miles each way, about 1700 feet of gain, 1:15 up, 15 mins at the top, 1:00 down. Far easier than I had heard from past hikers, who apparently were not aware of any trail.
