First off I would not recommend doing this hike alone. I was in Bullhead city for work, and decided to come back to this area. I will hike in the area again, I just wont summit to the top of Spirit alone.
Besides the wind, the hike started out great. After about 60 minutes into the hike, i saw, what I thought was the summit. I was thinking i would be to the top in about an hour. 2 1/2 hours later I was at the top :? There is a lot of thorn bushes and cactus you need to look out for. I am cut up from bushwhacking on this hike. Gaining elevation can be tricky also. I had to drop some elevation at one area. Pictures 10 and 11 are of the same rock formation. The snow and ice added some difficulty in some areas. There where 8 inches of snow in some places. Overall it was a fantastic hike. I am sore from head to toe.
I did start the trail about 2 miles north of the coordinates listed on this hike.
