Did this from Cholla lot at Lost Dutchman State Park in a counterclockwise direction. Probably not a good idea doing this after it rained. In spite of the slipping and sliding, this hike was exhilarating.

Played tour guide on the way up. Picked up one guy standing on the sidelines at the basin. It was Freddie's first time to the top and it turned out he was in the same air group I was at Camp Pendleton, USMC, albeit 30+ years later. Met another group while I was on my way to 5024 and took them to the top. Matt, Amir and Alex were also first timers.

And then I had things all to myself for a time as I made my way down the mountain to Massacre Falls. It was wet and slippery and steep. I had a few slips and falls and a couple of fun butt slides down some slick rock, but no harm done.

Picked up the Massacre Falls trail at the bottom of the mountain and immediately decided I wanted off of that. I know a couple of routes that take you back towards the fins, so I took one of them. When I reached the turn where I go up towards the fins, I decided instead to go north on the Silverlock Prospect trail towards the Crosscut TH for a few extra miles.

A short while later, I caught up to Amy returning to the Crosscut TH after a hike up Silverlock Prospect trail. We hiked together until we reached Jacobs Crosscut trail. From there, I headed back to Lost Dutchman.

Excellent day. Overcast at the start and all the way up Siphon Draw. Not too busy, even with the late start.
