Got to the saddle but did not go north up to 2429 summit. Instead hiked up to the two smaller peaks on the south. By my GPS, the closest one is 13 feet higher, at 2,368.' Surprised to see the rock south of the saddle is slabs of gray granite, fractured and weathering beautifully. The rock north of the saddle, including 2429, is that dirty reddish-brown rock. Hadn't noticed that before. I thought the second peak south is the prettiest with a small palo verde on top and numerous red-spined compass barrel growing through cracks in a large granite slab on the east. And there is a nice unobstructed view to south along the other peaks in the chain. All that but no comfortable place to sit. Plan to go on south to the other peaks when I have more time. It was well after sunset when I got back to the 40th Street parking lot.
