I'd been in talks with both Linda and Dallin about this one, so we decided to combine forces. My last journey here was solo, so it was nice to have some good company. We met at the TH at 7am and started up Y-Bar shortly after. The roller coaster of rocks is a perfect little warm-up before the off-trail begins. The route to the summit seemed much easier this time. Some bushwacking, a few scrambles, a few scratches, but nothing miserable. We used teamwork to achieve the objective. Between my sharp eyes, Dallin's route finding and a bossy, backseat driver, we made good time. The summit was nice, as usual. Great central AZ views. We enjoyed a lunch and started back down the north facing drainage. Beyond the big waterfall, we were treated to a fall wonderland we didn't quite expect. The entire area was bone dry, not even a stagnant pool. Lots of fun climbing down this drainage, but we were happy to be back on trail, upon reaching Barnhardt. We cruised on back to the TH. Didn't see another person all day and weather was perfect and fall-like. Great day in the Mazzies.
