Ascent Trip Report

Got permits for reservation recreation in Globe. Not sure if Turnbull is covered by permit, but nothing on permit says otherwise and no signage along the way so we assumed we were good.

With the right vehicle you can drive to about 7150', from where the hike is road-->trail-->open down to saddle-->nasty brush on north side-->ledge on north side/gully to crest/open slab walking to summit. The brush is the crux, if your route-finding on rock is good.
