I agree with the above description of brown's chute...its a pleasant hike and a decent scramble...the drive from town is kinda crappy tho as far as in town scrambles you can get in some class 3/4 at papago park...the east side of the squaw peak summit as well...there is some ok scrambling around cam...
i would be interested in doing a couple day trip starting in the desert just north of the high point and moving south as far as i could carry water for. maybe cache some around quartz peak...im going out tomorrow to explore another big segment of this area

lack of sunlight was our only issue. we didnt start til 830am and made it to the top of peaks 4,3 and 2 by sunset...opted not to also climb browns in the dark since we had all done it before...descended the nastiness on the west side between 1 and 2. prob still safer than continuing the route. 12 ho...
