Perfect day for this one—not too warm, with some nice clouds at times. Met Kelly at the carpool lot at 0530 and we were to the trailhead by 0830. The trail gives you a short warmup, then wastes no time heading uphill. Steep, with some loose rock, but generally easy to follow. I like the walk across the ridge along the top mile. Great views on both sides, with some fun easy scrambles. We took a snack break at the peak, then headed down. Generally easy hike down, with some slow progress through the steep section. Missed a turn on the trail in the exact same place I missed it last time. I’ll add a waypoint to my track at that spot for future hikes. Some moron was playing with a drone, and flying it a little too close over our heads at times. If I hadn’t been in a National Monument, I may have been tempted to try some target practice. Saw quite a few hikers in the last mile. The desert is much greener down there right now than it is around Phoenix. Fun day, great company, and a perfect 100th peak of the year.
