This mountain is the stadium seating for everything good and wonderfully along the Gila River valley east of Florence. The position of this isolated peak is perfectly centered between North/South Butte and The Spine. Between these destination resides the Coke Ovens, Cochran, Martinez Canyon, The Rincon, Battle Axe, and the White Canyon Wilderness. This is one cool summit to sit on! That area north of the river has some of the best scenery in the state. The 360 effect on Grayback is awesome. This hike isn't just about the summit... There's a sweet granite bench along the way up that was a blast to explore. I love off-trail mountaineering. The terrain can be a little unforgiving at times, however your efforts are almost always well rewarded. The summit registry on Grayback has entries going back as far as 1985. The paper utilized for the older entries is heavily degrading from summer heat, but is still readable with care. It's interesting to see where people are from. You can find some surprising entries on remote summits. This is how I love to spend a Saturday!
