Hadn't done this one for a while and decided to to it. We didn't start at the main trailhead because we drove the Model 3 so we wouldn't need to get gas, and the wife won't take this car far down any dirt roads. We parked shortly after turning off of 60 and dropped down into a wash; picked up the AZ Trail to the trailhead, then proceeded to the summit.

It's a bit of a slog on the last part up near the final big push before it begins leveling off. After reaching the summit I wanted to explore a little more on the top, since this is more like a mesa up here. Went to the North-West summit and spotted a box with some ashes of someone (See photo). Also spotted a small window/Arch(see photo) near this summit. Then headed over to the South-West summit to check out the views there. No real trails to these other summits, but easy enough to pick your own path.
