Ascent Trip Report

i'm in town to bag humphreys and needed a warmup hike, it's been two months since i've been up at 12k. this elden mountain hike seemed to fit the bill, at least it got me up to 9299. it was about all i could fit given the flight + driving.

this is my first peak from the "arizona 20-20" list... and it was a bit underwhelming. perhaps it has better times of year? at any rate it's a local exercise hill, with good views of the san francisco peaks (i'm guessing agassiz is the high one). i would pass a dozen other parties on this late friday afternoon, just before sunset.
