linda invited me to skip work and join her, bruce and joe for an ascent of north peak
nice opportunity for a new peak and a new trail in the mazzies
we got going around nine or so from mineral creek trailhead
mid 50s, mostly cloudy - good weather for a big uphill
steep hike up to a more moderate grade along a little ridgeline
we hiked all of north peak trail to the mazatzal divide trail
backtracked to start our ascent from the west
steep off trail with loose rock, other hazards included agave, manzanita and brush
probably should have worn pants
eventually topped out to great views
took a snack break, then started down a ridgeline to the northwest
it wasn't horrible, but glad i had a hiking pole
the remaining three miles on trail were all downhill
enjoyable day with this crew
thanks for inviting me :)
