Wow! This hike is not as easy as I anticipated. I thought after doing Dome Mountain the day before I would cool down with an easy peak bag. Wrong! Going up the east side drainage is nothing but boulder-hopping and scrambling. It was fun at first, but it quickly got tiring. And there's no way around it either as the slopes on both sides are chocked full of boulders. The high valley is a nice break, but then it's more boulders to the summit. When I finally reached the top I wasn't able to open the summit register. It was sealed on tight. So I just soaked in the views of Saguaro Lake and watched some helicopters fly overhead before maneuvering my way down.
