My brother and I make it out to AZ once a year and we decided to do Picacho Peak this time out. We started around 9am or so and it was a little cold, but it would quickly warm up. The trail to the saddle wasn't too bad. Going down the first cables was a bit terrifying at first but then it became fun. There are a few cable sections throughout the hike that you need to be pretty motivated to make it to the top if you have any fear of heights, but it's definitely worth it. We had the peak to ourselves for about 15 minutes or so. Coming down, there was a jam waiting for a few small groups to come up the cables so we had to wait. I would imagine doing this hike at the beginning or the end of the day would be best to avoid waiting for other hikers to ascend and descend the cables.
This was definitely the most fun I've ever had hiking. Coming from PA, we have nothing close to this. Can't wait to do it again next time I'm in AZ
