Route Scout Route Recorded  on Route Scout Popup | MapDEX
Met Tom at the Wolverine gate at 0800 and we headed up to Dome Mtn. Zero traffic on the road portion, so that was nice, and it seemed like no time at all before we reached the actual trail.

Easy uphill up to the saddle. I noticed a few red arrows. Not sure why someone couldn’t have just built a cairn if they really felt the route needed more definition, but hopefully the red paint is cheap and washes away soon.

At the saddle, we turned left and headed up the steeper section up to the summit. Quite steep in places, with ball bearing type gravel on the trail in a lot of places. A pole makes both the ascent and descent much easier. Took a snack break on the summit. Views were a little hazy, especially towards Phoenix. Warm, no breeze. A few minutes before leaving the summit, a group of four arrived. Saw two other hikers on our way down, and that was it for the day.

Tedious hike back down to the saddle. I wouldn’t do this hike in the rain. At the saddle, we decided to head over to 3134. Fairly easy route up, well defined, steep in only a few places. Similar views as Dome. Easy hike back down. Saw only a quad and dirt bike on the road on the way out.

I’m glad I wore pants and not shorts, since there were a few brushy spots. I think my kids would like both of these peaks, although I would drive to where 1356 makes a sharp right turn and park there so my kids wouldn’t be on the road. Thanks, Tom, for joining me on this one, even though I was whining about the warm temps.
