Clear blue skies for this one and a bit warm in the afternoon. Starting from Garfias Wash TH we headed downstream and checked out Hell Canyon. As Bruce mentioned the cows have really done a number on the landscape mostly in the wash area. Still the geology is cool to see and enjoyed the section in the cool morning shade. Eventually made our way up Horse Creek and over to the off trail portion of the hike.

We ascended the north slope of Highpoint 3651 along the ridgeline. On paper it might look straight forward but there are some obstacles like 3397 that made the ascent more adventurous. Once around that rock we continued on ridge to the summit and took a nice break. Great views on top of course but still a bit early for lunch so we descended backtracking a little before dropping down to the trail on Burro Flats.

On Burro Flats and before the second summit ascent we took lunch break in the shade. It was getting warmer but breezes did help especially higher up on the ridges. Our approach to 3392 was not the best with some very rocky, steep and loose scrambles to the summit. Views on 3392 were better than the highpoint but we didn't stay long because there was not much room to sit.

Different way down off the northwest side of 3392 and it turned out to be really good route and the most direct way back to the trail. From there we followed the trail back to road. Finished up with 2 miles on the road back to Garfias TH. Great hike in the Hells Canyon Wilderness!
