Good weather for this adventure starting at 44 degrees. Began and ended in Lost Dutchman Park , proceeded up Treasure Loop trail , then to the base of Praying Hands, saw 4 hikers and 4 dogs on the way . Then took the path toward the Massacre Grounds until the dry waterfall, actually not completely dry right now, passed by a single hiker with his dog and saw no one else until reaching 5024. After turning south up canyon there is a barrier of boulders on the west side of the drainage ,upper weekes wash, I argued with myself for awhile whether to drop down in the drainage or climb above the boulders. After probing up and down this for about 30 minutes I never found an easy way to suggest. I did come across some graffiti , date says 6/28 / 1938, not a time of year I would want to be here! Finally climbed over the boulders taking roughly the same route I took for the 4102 loop a couple of months ago ,from here saw a feasible way to cross the drainage ahead, may try staying in the drainage next time. Found a few cairns where I crossed above some pooling water . After this continued on trudging up through the vegetation in a southeast direction, warning looking up here may be discouraging, intersected a trodden path coming up from the Massacre Grounds and so followed it until the goalposts were in sight,felt like I had been kicked over them. Some melting ice remains in small patches on this side near the top. Made my way over to 5024, someone had a hammock swung between 2 rocks ,unfortunately it was occupied. Took a break below the summit to be out of the wind.Decided not to join the crowd on flatiron. Uneventful trip down to Crosscut Trail and back.
