Ascent Trip ReportThis was a Southern Arizona Hiking Club trip led by John Ohm.
The jeep access road is North Waterman Mountain Road and is south off West Avra Valley Road. Follow North Waterman Mountain Road 2.6 miles south to the trailhead parking. The trail is a blocked primitive road. I recommend high clearance, 4WD, and good tires for traveling on North Waterman Mountain Road.
Follow the blocked road past a wildlife guzzler to a saddle at about 3220'. Leave the road and follow the SW Ridge north, then west to the NE side of the summit, then up easy slopes to the summit.
We visited a helicopter crash memorial plaque and cross to the NNE of the summit on our descent.
