Went out for a quick hike this afternoon/evening and this one was a perfect fit. A little warm in the sun at first, but as the shadows got longer, it got much nicer. Had a nice breeze up higher to keep the evap going and keep the gnats away too. Loved the views of the Ridgeline, Weavers Needle, and First Water Canyon from here. Hit Peak 2980' first, then explored the Little Four Peaks.

I realized afterward (and after reading the description a little more closely) that Peak 2980 isn't technically part of the "Little Four Peaks," so I stopped after three of the rockier, fun ones after hitting 2890', thinking I'd done 4. I saw another little outcropping to the south, pretty close to the 3rd (the highest of them) and looked to be of similar terrain to what I'd just done. Fun scrambling getting to where I got though. So cool being up there near sunset. Headed back home and hit the car just as the sun was going down.
