Ascent Trip Report

Started at the unofficial trailhead on Estrella Drive, east of 43rd Avenue. Followed a newer trail that runs below the mountains. As of 2019, this trail does not appear on the Phoenix South Mountain Park maps. Followed this fine trail for a mile. Then went uphill up an easy ridge, catching game paths and use trails to the top ridge, then an easy hike with a little rockiness to the top.
