An early morning haze cast gloom over the 7 canyons, as well as Capitol Butte, so I opted out of doing Devil's Bridge early, which paid off in the end. I hit the trailhead for the Cockscomb at 7:30, and it was already warm outside. I set out cross-country toward the monument, and had to negotiate the arroyos, cactus and fragile desert soil to reach it. The scramble up the north face was a blast, and the views of Bear Mountain and Doe Mountain behind me were sweet. I rounded the east face of the Cockscomb, and eventually I found the final climb up to the top! By then the haze was clearing off of Capitol, which allowed me to do Devil's Bridge afterward. Heading back I took the trail that parallels the fenceline with "The Aerie." When I hit the road, I decided to bushwack back to the car anyway...it was more trouble than it was worth because I walked right by the trailhead and wasted a good 20 minutes that I could have spent at Devil's Bridge. Oh well, it was a great climb anyway!
