Ascent Trip ReportHot day for a hike, but climbed Iron Mountain with Nathaniel. Started at the main trail head, headed over to Ellie Lane, and then up to the summit and back. Once we hit the helipad, we turned around and made it almost all the way back to the summit (maybe .5 miles short), before heading back down the shortest route to the trail head. VERY hot day and the 40+ pound packs we were using in prep for the Trans Catalina Trail didn't help. Took a break at the trail juncion near the helipad and had some electrolyte mix and water. Great training hike and prep for the heat.
