southpawaz needed a special hike to get me out this direction to go to this geocaching "mega event" in yuma (on sunday). there wasn't anything about that event that made it sound appealing, other than his presence. but this hike sounded like an interesting way to spend a saturday. from the "don't go alone" from mel8 to the photos and description from redroxx. i do love a desert scramble. this hike did not disappoint. the first couple of miles were a mellow up the wash walk. then we started up. and up. and up. then it got to a steeper scramble and we ditched our poles for full use of all of our limbs. this hike was certainly worthy.

other hikers: we ran into a couple of "white hairs" (for lack of a better term) who had done the peak from the front face. they said it was a bit more exposed - and that this was their ninth year to make the climb up this mountain. i can't even imagine, but wow. what amazing hikers/climbers! we also ran into a couple of marines on their way in the morning. i'm happy to be among such awesome company on that summit register. this is one i'll do again for sure.
