Ascent Trip Report

Bagged the peak on second attempt, last week was foiled by weather. 4 hours round trip from parking lot trailhead at Ski Apache. 2 hours up, 20 mins on top, 1:40 down. Ran into 7 other hikers today. Once you cross onto the reservation, there are no trails, so you just aim for the top. It's really steep, my lungs and legs were burning. It was cool scrambling across the boulders at the top.
