Needed to climb this peak after years of staring at it out the window going down I-17. It was calling me.
I brought HAZ'er Cara, grabbed a permit, and we made our way out.
Parking at Deems Park is a good place to start, although some cars were parked at the dead-end of Stetson/51st Ave right by the canal. I wasn't sure that was allowed, but then again, what do I know? We did see some people hiking and biking near Pyramid. My partner asked if people had a permit to be out here. :o Funny. :lol: Not many people otherwise.
The terrain is similar to Scarlett Canyon just East of here, rocky like Camelback, just not crowded.
No trail to speak of, except the track on my phone. A bushwhack/climb the whole way up. A couple of false peaks and good/solid holds the whole way. Mind you, it took some time, but we made it to the top. The views were great all-around. There was a small metal box with a band-aid and pencil, but no paper to write on; no summit register. Surprised me there was an American flag standing tall and proud with some solar lights attached. Took the obvious selfie and made our descent very slowly. I'm glad I finally nailed this obscure peak! :y:
