Quick hike our our way back to Phoenix. I figured Kelly would like this area, and it's a fun hike, so I was happy to hike this again after just being here two months ago.

Cool and breezy when we started. This one immediately starts climbing, and we made our way up the ridge. Took a break at the turn toward the west, hiked up the steep scree slope, then made the final scramble to the top. It's an easy walk across the top to the hightpoint, where the views are great.

The register was easy to find this time (I wasn't able to find it in February), so we signed it, then relaxed at the top and took a bunch of pictures. The skies were clear yesterday, so we had a nice view of Vegas and all the surrounding mountains.

Quick hike back down to the car, and we followed the wash for the last 3/4 mile instead of the ridge. Great way to finish out a fun trip!
