Bob and Patrick and I had some unfinished business on Red, but unfortunately Patrick wasn't able to make it. I decided to make it social and invited a few others who had previously expressed interest in bagging these peaks. After a quick cuddle with one of the lame SSOs this morning, we piled into my truck and headed north.

In celebration of an anniversary just a few days away, we decided to bring a bunch of beer. AZWilderness style. :DANCE:

Ken let us figure out the way up, without guidance. Bob led the way on the one overhung climb and managed it ok, but didn't want to go down. JJ went up the crazy way, and also didn't want to go down. I explored two other routes, before settling on the one that Scott led and made it seem ok. The rest of the group followed, and we all descended the same route. After us, the previous catclaw obstacle has been obliterated. :)

We took a long break on the peak, enjoyed some Big Gye Rye and some Signal Mtn Stout because the symbolic red was no longer on tap when I filled the growlers. I left a complaint with the owner. :(

We traversed across to White, had another break there, and headed down to the dirtbike track that makes for an easy ride back to the mine, where of course, we took another break and listened to a little football on the radio thing.

Good to meet Ken and see the rest again. A great day out in the Hieroglyphics.

Short video here. BobP and JJ on the violins. http://youtu.be/DClIzK9l0qo
