A combo climb of Peak 3937 which was easy, and Peak 4202 which was pretty dang hard. The latter felt like real mountaineering. I had only one moment of doubt, the descent on Pk 4202 which required some serious Class 3 down climbing. There's also a pretty nasty chute that leads to the crux and toward the final summit push. I was OK climbing it but descending was a little hairy.

I made the trip with Cannondale Kid who was a GREAT hiking/climbing partner. His 4x4 skills are amazing. Surprisingly some parts which scare others in the Jeep, didn't even phase me a bit.

We cached some water in a bear vault along the Arizona Trail.

We met a AZT thru-hiker at the water cache area and that was pretty cool.

All in all, an amazing day!!!

Can't wait to get back out into this area again for more adventures.
