Matt and I left the Finger Rock TH shortly after 7, but the humidity was heavy. I was totally wet within a half mile. I appreciate Matt not running off and heading up the trail, but we made good time anyway. The trail is in the shade for much of the way up to the the sharp turn to the right. From there, it's a pretty easy finish up to the saddle, which is a short spur off the main trail which continues up to intersect Pima Canyon Trail on the way to Mt. Kimball.

Matt gave me permission to post the Official Track for this hike, which is a great one. Note that my track includes the short scrambles up to the adjoining peaks to the southwest from the saddle. Nice addition to the basic hike, but beware that some class 3 rock scrambling is involved.

Good water in the wash.

Great day of hiking.
