Ascent Trip ReportApproached from south, coming up from Chiricahua Mtn. See that report for GPS.
Tried topo trail on N side of Peak 9660. This trail is totally obliterated by brush. Returned on S side via Juniper Spring, fine.
Trail up W rij of Snowshed can still be found, but basically unusable because of fallen snags and some brush. Better to pick way through open areas of rock. A usable trail does emerge around 9600msl, after a somewhat difficult (but worthwhile) climb over a fallen tree; it stays on the S side of the crest going over to the highpoint.
