Started from the east side of the Belmont Mountains, off of Aguila Road around noon. I had my Civic so I only drove a short distance off road. Walked an old road leading up to a high, open mine. I say open mine because I could see the tailing piles and where they blasted away at a wall but no shafts, adits or pits. There's a bunch of copper ore spread around. From there I headed for the ridgeline and followed it, more or less, all the way to the high point. This range is pretty rugged and was more difficult than expected. Quite a few exposed sections on the ridges made me consider turning around. Glad I didn't.
