Good to get back to Bronco after 11 years. Not as steep heading up as I recall. Fabulous Salt River Corridor views make this one a winner. We took a stab at the un-numbered peak just NW by the MCSO relay. Decided it's doable in a pinch but not worth the risk. The holds are crumbly and unstable. The rock sounds hollow when you tap on it.

From there looked down and thought it would be a shortcut to head straight down to the highway maintenance yard. There is one cool slick rock type formation. Overall too brushy, the regular route is quicker too.

Most of the cars on the Apache Trail had Cali plates.
