Was looking at the Goldfield area for a hike and stumbled on to this destination, had not been here before so downloaded the official route . For some reason I couldn’t get it functioning. I concluded user error and quit checking it. Had recalled bits and pieces from the written instruction to go left when the road goes right , go to south and west side to go on the main peak and look for saguaros with arms to return. Fortunately for me highway 88 remained in view during this expedition. After turning left down the wash I grew impatient with floundering around the vegetation in the wash and went straight up to a low saddle , on review looks like I should have continued in a more straight direction than turning left. After going over a couple of peaks continued on to the peak that I thought was the one to approach from the southwest, wrong, ended up being able to explore it’s northeast side too as this side was much easier going.After finding this was not the peak with the register and after doing a circumference of this peak continued on to what turned out to be the main peak , found the jar with its rusted top, by the way could use a replacement and new log book. I thought the best views were from here. Onward to LFP , the next peak was a short scramble and the next a steeper scramble. Then turned back toward the saddle approaching the main peak where I followed a game path to the left and above the wash after passing 3 saguaros with arms. Neat area , enjoyed the different views here, would not be a good warm weather hike. Would be tempted to take the down route up and go to the main peak just call it 2980 summit hike and skip the others if I come back again. May have set a record time for this one, longest time to finish. Completed the day since it was nearby stretching my legs on the easier Treasure Loop trail ,also I could get a distant picture of LFP.
