I've been wanting to do these two summits for a long time and was fortunately offered the chance by Devils Mountain-- a true off-trail professional.

We too Tortilla Creek to Peters Canyon and eventually started ascending out of there. We planned taking Devils normal route up to the top of Malapais but decided at the last minute to try a different ascent. It was a bit rough at times but fun. We made it up Malapais and hung out with some amazing views.

It was now time to go bag Geronimo Head so we headed back down the route of the original plan which was much easier. Then we headed up towards Geronimo Head. By this time, most of our ascent was done but this is a heck of a long day. We made it up to the summit and found more great views.

We headed back down which is mostly easy going. I ran of water a half mile from the car but that wasn't really an issue. This is a solid hike for sure-- definitely one of the hardest 10 miles I've done. Big thanks to Devils Mountain for leading me up there! :)
