WOW...NOW THIS WAS A HIKE! THAT SCREE CHUTE IS AWESOME. THE DRIVE ON 143 WAS A SAFARI WITHIN ITSELF...GREAT DAY THIS WAS, SUNNY WITH FEW SCATTERED CLOUDS AND PROBABLY MID TO UPPER 90'S. HIKE WAS SHORT, IT DOESNT TAKE TO LONG GET TO THE SUMMIT, BUT LOOKING UP THE CHUTE LOOKS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FROM BELOW UNTIL YOU GET AT THE FOOT OF THE CLIMB. THERE IS ALOT OF NICE FOOTHOLDS AND PLACES TO GRAB A GOOD HANDLING, SO IT'S REALLY NOT ALL THAT BAD...AND IN THE CASE OF THIS TRAIL IT SEEMED GOING DOWN WAS EASIER THAN GOING UP... BUT THATS A SCARRY SITE LOOKING DOWN ONCE YOU MADE IT TO THE TOP....GREAT VIEWS FROM AT TOP OF THE PEAK...OF LAKE ROOSEVELT AND THE SUPERSTITIONS ARE THE 2 BEST VIEWS...THE ANGLE OF THE OTHER 3 PEAKS THOUGH BLOCK THE VIEW FROM SEEING WEAVERS NEEDLE AND BATTLESHIP MOUNTAIN...SO ITS NOT A COMPLETE 360 VIEW.. NOT LIKE SUPERSTITION PEAK OR HUMPHREY... THIS TURNED OUT TO BE A NICE BREAK FROM HIKING THE SUPERSTITIONS...THOSE SUPES ARE TOUGH...ITS A HARSH ENVIRONMENT FOR SURE. A BIT COOLER AND BREEZY UP HERE...THANKS FOR SHOWING ME THIS ONE CASS! REALLY ENJOYED THIS HIKE!
I WOULD PUT THIS ONE NEXT TO BATTLESHIP MOUNTAIN... THERE IS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO, AS BATTLESHIP IS IN THE UNFORGIVING SUPES, AND IS A LONG STRETCH OF HIKE...AND THE ROCK WALLS TO CLIMB ARE MORE SPACED APART INSTEAD OF BEING JUST ONE BIG ONE LIKE ON BROWNS... BOTH ARE DEFENATLY TEST IN BOULDERING SKILLS...
