Sun_hiker and I had plans to hike this in January but I had to cancell due to my sons accident. March is so much nicer on Mazzy anyways. The plan is to take the Y-bar and summit and either take an off-trail route back or loop back on barney. This is a tough hike with some scrambling,climbing, and off-trail. The climbing can be bypassed. The plan would be to meet somewhere in Fountain Hills at 6amish. Remember you and only you are responsible for yourself...if you decide to join. I'll also carry a radio and have an extra. Most questions can be answered my looking at the description and the diferent gps tracks. As the date gets closer, I'll give a few options of the actual route depending on the dynamics of the group. If anyone is interested. There may be an option to hit some other peaks in the area.

Law school is finally on spring break. :y: I decided a couple hours ago that I'm going to try this walk tomorrow morning! I printed off a GPS route, I'm thinking about just doing Y-bar up and back. I hope that last steep part is not as treacherous as it seems. I hope there is not any unmanageable snow/ice or anything like that. :)

I have to cancel. I'll be in the area doing an overnight and would love to do this summit but I don't want to slow everyone down since I'll be lugging up my big pack. I hope to run into you folks, though. :)

I look at the Mazatzal peak from my backyard, was just up there the other day orI'd go, before the latest snow storm (16inches) which now is mostly all gone, always enjoy the view of Horseshoe lake and Humbolt Mts radar dome or Enjoy! ;)
