This one has been on my radar for some time. I pass by it when taking the Safford/Globe route back from my New Mexico Chile runs. It has a cool profile and a pointed spire up top. The mountain reaches 8282 feet in elevation so it is the High Point of the Northern Santa Teresa Mountain Range.

I didn't expect to be able to drive up the approach road as far as we did. It shortened the hike considerably but that was okay for this trip since there was snow on the ground. I am not a fan of the cold or snow which is why I call Arizona home. Overall this wasn't too bad, but there is some bushwhacking followed by some light scrambling.

Up top there are 4 poles and evidence of a prior fifth. I'm not sure of their purpose but they are there. Under the large mound of rocks in the middle is a register. Just be sure to bring a pencil or pen as there isn't one. I did my best to use a tootsie roll as a crayon and write HAZ on the sheet but it didn't work out so well. Guess I will just have to go back up and sign it sometime. :)

The views from up top are worth the drive not to mention it makes a fun little get away.

Permits are required and run $10.00 for the day. We got ours at the Express Stop in Globe which is located next to the Pizza Hut.

Good times and good company!
