first visited the huachucas with @rwstorm four years ago
we hiked carr peak and made an attempt on ramsey peak
late start and stormy weather cut that short, but ramsey has been on my list ever since
joined linda and nick, with dallin and his friend alex meeting us at the trailhead
we set out around 0830, heading down comfort springs trail, then up pat scott canyon trail
hit the intersection with the crest trail, which was as far as randy and i got last time
took the ridgeline back to the north, hitting pat scott peak on the way (at least that's what the topo says)
off trail to ramsey peak, with some bushwhacking as we tried to stay on the ridge
summit views were obscured by vegetation except for the dropoff to the south
very windy at that point, but sheltered just below for a snack break
ramsey looks better from below than from the summit, but still a worthy peak
found a better route down, avoiding most of the bushwhacking
retraced our steps, especially enjoying the ascent back up comfort springs trail
fun to see the huachucas again - love the southern arizona sky islands
miller peak now goes to the top of the wish list :)
clear skies, good temps, a stiff breeze and a nice crew of south mountain regulars for this effort
nice to hear a little about dallin's pct hike, meet alex, and hike with nick again
another good peak with linda, too
