1st trip
Fun route, fun day. Originally I hadn't expected to actually do the full crest line as planned. I thought for sure at some point we'd find an excuse to cut it short. But it started to become apparent that we were destined to go to the top - especially because Kim had never hiked to the top of Wrightson, let alone any of the peaks on the crest.

We started out quiet. But as we got to Roger's Rock we started to get into our adventure. At times, we were a very rowdy bunch.

McCleary came and we took the route to the summit. It's always fun to see how many people had signed in since my last trip. Not too many...

From there, we took the trail to the Crest. The trail near Armour Spring is getting pretty bad. There was one section that had washed out.

We reached Pine Saddle and ascended 88 Mac. Then for my favorite part, going up the unnamed peak on the other side of Pine Saddle! The views of Mt Wrightson from there are always stellar!

We continued along to Rice and Ian. From there we joined the trail again and hiked up Wrightson.

We spent a considerable time on breaks - whoever can ascend peaks without taking a break on top to enjoy the views is absolutely crazy! HA!

We celebrated with margaritas in Sahuarita at Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant.
