Ascent of Mount Graham on 2009-04-19
|Date:||Sunday, April 19, 2009|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||10720 ft / 3267 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFollowed old jeep trail. Google Maps shows jeep trail going to the top of the peak, but this is sort of a misnomer, as the main trail goes past the peak to the telescope observatory.
There was a bit of snow at places, nothing tennis shoes couldn't handle. At the peak, fallen timber was everywhere; felt like walking on matchsticks.
There were no signs on the way up indicating it was unlawful to hike to the top. Saw two endangered Mount Graham squirrels.
