After getting off of work early, I drove straight to the Dragoons to determine if Black Diamond was actually climb-able or not, and to hopefully explore the Black Diamond Mine. I climbed up, hit the saddle, then followed some sort of a rough game trail along the west slope of Black Diamond. Reaching the south ridge a bit higher than I had planned, I decided to push up the ridge and attempt to summit. The ridge was easy, but the mountain top was rocky and undulating with several false summits, making for slow progress. I reached the summit just before my turn around time, ready to place a register. But the Southern AZ Hiking Club had beat me to it...21 years earlier :lol:, so I added my name to the scores of others. I stuck around for awhile, enjoying the amazing view, before reluctantly retreating from the summit to beat the coming darkness. On the way down, I ducked into the Escapule Mine for a brief exploration. Got back to the truck after dark, then drove back over Middlemarch Road through the heart of the Dragoons. What a great evening!
