I have never been out to the Goldfields before and I didnt feel like going to another I-17 party this weekend. Was not overly impressed with the area, until I saw a 500 ft cliffside that looked like a mini Battleship Mnt wanting to be climbed. I took an approach from the NW and made it up with just a little scrambling - no problem. There was a small rock pile up there and looks like you could go up and down the whole ridgeline up top. I only went to 2 different points and then came back down and continued on. The trail was very easy to follow the whole way with next to nothing elevation gain wise. After I got to Willow Springs Basin Tank, I decided to make a loop with Rough n Ready Canyon which was a lot of uncomfortable sand walking, but after a while it goes into a really cool area with a lot of close up rock formations. Very secluded back there, it was a little creepy. Also I wish I was in a Jeep instead. Spotted lots of tiny pieces of tire, reflectors, scrape marks, and other random car parts. Also saw a spot where someone rolled and there was window glass everywhere. After wearing the same model of shoes for like 6 years, I thought I would 'upgrade' to some new Newbies and they weren't working out too well, so I decided to ditch the sand walking and cut across back over to Willow Springs Canyon. The crosscut trail reminded me of Bull Pass area in the Supes. Might be a while until I come back out here.
