We started from the Crosscut TH and headed SE on the trail for a short ways. Continued SE off-trail through patches of cholla, thornbushes, and agave for a while. Came to a fence and passed through a broken portion of it at the large ravine and continued on to the Massacre Falls trail. Left the trail before reaching the falls and went south, bushwhacking and climbing our ways up. As we were going up the first hill, we got distracted by a sort of window rock and took a much-needed break. We started to the right of this hill afterward, but it's preferable to stay left (east) of it. After reaching level terrain near 5024, instead of heading straight for it we hooked off to the west to take lunch within a grouping of rocks out on a ledge. Continued south and climbed up through more agave and bushes to the summit. From here we took the trail down to check out the Flatiron and then went down Siphon Draw. Took Jacob's Trail #58 back to Crosscut. Had a lot of fun with this hike!

Time includes about 2.5 hours of breaks. Will post pics later.
