john had the day off, so we met up at the 32nd and lincoln trailhead for a hike in the preserve
i wanted to go up on black toes' ridgeline 6
we talked about doing that with peak 2429, but instead did a loop with two of my favorites, voaz and irregular loop
8A - 302 - irregular link - 1A - voaz (with a visit to the lookout) - 304 - 8B
from the 8B saddle, went south and up along the ridgeline
fun scrambling with good views of the park
pretty obvious trail most of the way
didn't care for how we dropped off the end, and in looking at my track i can see why
if anyone is interested in doing this, load black toes' track and descend toward the southwest rather than the south
back on 202 and 8A
a nice alternative from 8B for a loop instead of a lasso
thanks for doing this with me john :)
