kingsnake
kingsnake posted somewhere that he was planning to hike some prescott peaks, including tritle and maverick
kind of invited myself to tag along if he wanted company
we started out around nine, and headed up kendall camp trail
at the top of that, you can go west to maverick or east to tritle
we decided on maverick first
stayed on the trail to just south of the peak and began the off trail up a draw
steep and loose and had some sticker bushes at times
near the summit the terrain became more brushy
wandered around making sure to find the highest point
lots of ladybugs
started down the ridgeline, trying to follow the orange ribbons, but soon got diverted into a route down the south face, ending up in another draw just east of the one we came up
sounds like joe and bruce found the ridgeline a little more difficult
not a big payoff on this peak, and in hindsight we should have just gone for tritle first and called it a day
kingsnake simply wasn't feeling the first big hill on the way to tritle, so he very generously offered to wait for me while i hit the peak
three good climbs, one of them giving me fits coming back down
lost some elevation a couple times that had to be regained
no benchmark at the summit, and it took awhile to find the register, which was under a tree near some large cairns
good views, especially toward the west, but also of nearby peaks if you moved around a bit
a nice peak
met back up with preston and descended trail #65 through the pine forest
cool enough in the shade or with a breeze
something different, two peaks, and good company
it was nice to meet your wife, preston
thanks for the hike and for driving :)
