Nice day out. Saw maybe a half dozen people out on the trail, mostly senior couples with :wlift:

I did the Finger Rock - Ventana traverse this morning. Started in the dark at 5:15. Gnats still really annoying above 4,000 feet or so. I guess we need a good frost to kill those !@#$ers off. The trail from the saddle below Kimball over to the head of Ventana is really overgrown at the moment (although not hard to follow because of the, shall we say, "thorough" job someone has done cairning it). I'd recommend long pants or gaiters for this. This is the first time I'd ever been in Ventana canyon above Maiden Pools. It's really pretty: a pretty smooth, well-worn trail winding through oak and juniper. Was out by 11:45, and went over the Loewe's to call a cab to get back to my car.

I lead this hike for our club at least once a year (4 yrs in a row), and wanted to note that an increasing number of folks are finding this hike (the Guard, not the finger itself which requires technical climbing). There are sufficient cairns and the trail is more visible now. It was very faint in spots 4 years ago. Three places to watch for. The cutoff Finger Rock Trail down into the canyon is just before the sharp right turn at the last 1/2 mile or so to Linda Vista Saddle along the Finger Rock Trail. Second, at the saddle between Kimball and Finger Rock, take the left most trail at the saddle camping spot. The straight through leads over to Finger Rock itself. Don't get antsy, you still have about 400 feet of climbing left. Third, a 20 foot rope to get through a rock chute near the top may help some be more comfortable. You won't have much trouble if you're fairly nimble. Also, watch for the huge rocking boulder at the very top. It moves an inch or so and it feels eerie if you sit on it. Definitely some pucker potential at the top. I've had some very experienced hikers bail near the top.

Save some energy for the 200 ft climb out of the canyon to rejoin the FR trail on the way back. This is a great hike except in summer because it's not high enough to be much cooler than the valley below. The climb up the saddle is very steep. Our RT AEG was about 4000 feet. Good luck.

Dropped a car at Ventana and started out at Pima Canyon at 12pm- hiked to the second dam and took a break for it to cool down before the climb to the spring. It was the first couple of days in the high 80's and I am not used to the heat yet. Looked longingly at all the off-trail hikes that can't be done yet because of the bighorn sheep closure. Camped at the spring, but the campsites were a little too close to the spring for my taste. The next day, hiked up to Mt. Kimball and had the summit all to myself for two hours while I took in one of the best views in all the Catalinas. After lunch, I hiked over to Ventana Canyon on the Finger Rock Trail. Great views of the backside of the Finger and Guard. Someone has cairned the pumpkin out of the Finger Rock Trail, so much so that it was kind of annoying. Gorgeous piece of trail with great views. Reached the Ventana/Esperero junction and it was still early so I decided to take a siesta where the trail crosses the creek to let it cool down a bit. There was a nice pool at the last crossing before it climbs up the hill to the junction. Ventana is one gorgeous canyon! After the pools, at the bottom of the switchbacks met a couple, the only people I'd seen all day who thought they were almost to the pools. Good thing I told them to turn around, as it took them until almost the last light to hike back from where they were. Combined with my trip from two weeks ago, I have gotten to see the whole front-range ridgeline from Pima to Sabino. Incredible stuff so close to town- I feel so lucky. I am training for a Grand Canyon trip and was thinking about all those people who live in the flatlands who have to train for the canyon by walking up stairwells or bleachers with a loaded pack. :yuck:

Second time doing the Finger Rock/Ventana Canyon traverse. Had some thin clouds keep us out of the sun as we slogged our way up Finger Rock. Then when we began to drop into Ventana Canyon the clouds dispersed and we were treated to a nice breeze.

We did a Finger Rock to Ventana Canyon traverse. Beautiful day. There was still a little snow on the backside of the mountain after the saddle when heading over to Ventana Canyon. We had the trail all to ourselves until Maiden Pools.

I hit the trail just before 7:30am and began to work my way uphill. I had been dreading the steepness, but I felt fantastic and made great time. I spent 20 minutes exploring the turn off at Linda Vista saddle and still made it to Mt. Kimball in under 3 hours!

After taking in the view for a couple minutes, I returned to the trail and headed back down to the Pima/Finger Rock junction and took a left turn, heading for Ventana Trail. I had never done this portion of Finger Rock and took my time. This section of trail is obviously not well traveled, but is well Cairned and easy enough to follow if you pay attention.

Just before I hit Ventana Trail I encountered a man from Connecticut working his way to Mt Kimball (definitely not the most common route to Mt. Kimball). After chatting for a couple minutes we went our separate ways. Less than 5 minutes later I reached to junction with Ventana and took a right turn.

I had the trail to myself again until I reached Maiden Pools and encountered a group of three hikers. After working my way down the final set of switchbacks I jogged the remaining 2 miles back to the parking lot.

I almost forgot to post this one. Lots of snow above ~5500. Ran into a crazy old guy who said he nearly "Froze to death" overnighting up there. From the state of him I doubt it was hyperbole...Ran back into him on the way down and he was still going strong ;)

This might just be the best hike in the Tucson area! We were treated to views of Finger Rock, Finger Rock Guard, Mt Kimball, Baboquivari, Kitt, Wasson, Safford, Panther, Mica, Rincon, Mt Lemmon, Window, Cathedral, Samaniego, Thimble, Blacketts, and many more!

We took the entire Pontatoc Canyon trail. Continued past the "End of Trail" sign up a ridge to a great view of the Window. From there we hiked, crawled, and scrambled up the ridge to Little Kimball. We were only only people in 2010 to do the peak according to the peak register! From there we got to Kimball Saddle where we joined up with the Finger Rock trail. From there we continued on the Finger Rock trail to Ventana Canyon. We went down Ventana Canyon to finish the hike.

Note that 3 miles of this route were off trail bushwacking. Don't try to do this hike unless you are really good at route finding. Even the section of trail from Kimball Saddle to the Junction with the Ventana Canyon trail can be hard to follow.

Did Mt Kimball from Finger Rock Trial today and went about 1.5 miles down the other side towards Ventana. Very much like bushwacking after the summit , make sure to put your long pants back on before proceeding. Then I decided to head back the way I came and made it just before sundown. Great weather for December! Nice and cool but still warm enough to break out the shorts and soak in the sun. Saw a tarantula , A blue bird of some sort, and several hikers that unknowingly hiked to the top in search of the access to finger rock :( . A very tough hike up and back. Still no water or snow so take what you need.
This is my first post to HAZ and looking forward to more!

It was a day full of bushwhacking fun in the front range today. Went up Pontatoc Canyon trail. The upper sections are much more overgrown than the last time I was there, and I had trouble following the trail as it climbed the side of the canyon after the crossing. Saw 2 young javalina in this section (no sign of mom).

Continued past the end of the trail up to Peak 5783, which was definitely the highlight of the trip. I've been wanting to climb to this peak for a couple of years now, and I've been reminded of it every time I drive down Sunrise in the Craycroft area. It's one of those lovely little peaks that has amazing views in all directions and probably sees almost no visitors... very close to the city and a trail, but also very isolated. There was a deer near the peak that didn't even seem to mind that I was there.

Continued up to the ridge overlooking Ventana Canyon at around 5960' for a nice view of the Window and the Maiden Pools area. The 1980 Rainbow Expeditions map shows the Pontatoc Canyon trail going out about this far, so I guess it was shortened at some point with that scenic "end of trail" sign that exists now. I did find quite a few cairns on the way, but no recognizable trail or route even.

Made my way back down to the official trail and then remembered that I had researched a route some time ago from this area over to Linda Vista saddle and decided to give it a try. Figured the bushwhacking was going well and it probably wouldn't be too much worse than trying to navigate the upper sections of the bloody Pontatoc trail (which sort of turned out to be true). I found my way across the shindagger-infested hills trying to follow game trails, ridge lines, and rocky paths as much as possible. Climbed over and around a few drainages and navigated a crossing of the only decent-sized canyon between the two points. Finally, I made it to the saddle and was very happy to see a real trail again by this time!

Came down the Finger Rock trail. Hadn't been on this trail before and was quite impressed with the canyon. Descending through the towering cliffs was a perfect way to end a great day on the trails, not-quite trails, and not-even-close-to trails.

Mileage and AEG estimated from maps.

I had big plans for today. I have been planning on hiking the Finger Rock Trail to Mt. Kimball for a Grand Canyon training hike, and last week's cooler weather gave me some hope. While on Pusch Peak earlier this week I figured if I started early enough, I could probably get to the junction with the Pima Canyon trail and find a camp in the shade before it got too hot. I'd hike early, set up camp at a cooler elevation, spend the night, and hike down early the next morning. Unlike my hike up Pusch Peak, I would have to carry enough water for a dry camp, along with my backpacking gear. I got everything ready the night before so that I could get started as early as possible, went to bed at a reasonable hour, and set my alarm for 4:30 am. I awoke refreshed and ready to start my day. I packed 2.5 gallons of water into my pack and went to put it in the car. I didn't weigh my pack because I didn't want to know.

Wow. That's heavy. I paid it no mind, because after a while, my body adjusts to heavy loads. I drove to the trailhead in the dark and was hiking just as it got light enough to see without a headlamp.

Wow. It's a lot hotter than it was even a couple of days ago, and man, all this water is HEAVY! I started up the trail, thankful that the Finger Rock Tr. gave me a flat mile before the real pain began. What happened to the cool mornings? I figured my discomfort was just my body loosening up at the start of a hike. After I got hiking for a bit, I'd feel much better.

Only I didn't. I grunted and groaned, not a good indication on this flat part of the trail. My hips ached with the strain of all the weight. I'd done my best to pare down my backpacking gear to a minimum, but all the water at 8.35lbs/gal was seriously cramping my style. My plan was to hike up to the campsite in the early morning, but not only did I have to carry water for hiking 3700 ft. uphill but also enough water to spend the day, and cook and camp at night. The hike down the next morning would take hardly any time or water at all, comparatively, so it didn't make sense to cache on the way up. I felt like a family of cows had somehow slipped into my pack.

I was nearing Finger Rock Spring, when I noticed the sun starting to hit the top of the canyon. I reached the bottom of the trail where it starts climbing wildly and assessed my situation. I was already hot and sweaty, grunting and swearing against the weight of my pack. I hadn't even started climbing yet, and I realized that today was not going to be the day. I turned back around and hiked back to the car. It must have been an awful hike, because I didn't take a single picture. Not of the beautiful sunrise- nothing. I drove back home and contemplated taking the day off and relaxing, but after an hour at home it seemed to be a shame to waste a fully-packed backpack and a day and a half off.

Where to go? I didn't feel like going up to Mt. Lemmon again. I was getting too late a start for anything with a lot of climbing. The main reason for this backpacking trip in the first place was to see how my new Merrell Moab Ventilators were on a backpacking trip before I take them into the Grand Canyon for 12 days. Carrying around all that water in a hot, dry place in the morning made me want to go the extreme opposite: where could I go that would give me a variety of terrain to test my shoes, but with a lot of water so I could hike in the heat of the day without a ridiculous drive?

Only one answer fit the bill: Aravaipa. I checked the website and was extremely pleased to see that there were no permits issued yet for today from the west entrance, and only two for the East entrance. I would be guaranteed solitude, water, shade, and incredible surroundings. I gladly paid my $10 for the privilege of spending the next 24 hours in this desert paradise.

Nice hike to the sound of rushing water. Went 1/2 mile past the Linda Vista turnoff where the snow became more than Sun_Hiker and I wanted to deal with. Stopped at Linda Vista on the return trip and also caught some nice shots of the waterfall across the canyon below.

I signed up to hike this before I knew I was hiking 28 miles the day before. I couldn't bail so I ate well Friday night and went for it. Originally we were going to the Finger Rock Summit and ended up on Mt Kimball. On the way back down we took a spur trail which ended up being an off trail adventure through the over growth between Mt Kimball and Finger Rock. After an agave attack and black tailed rattlesnake viewing we broke through to the Finger Rock Summit spur. The hike/climb up is exciting with ample exposure to keep the adrenaline flowing. After gaining the summit we took the spur trail back to the Finger Rock Trail and strolled down. The trail is easy to find but keeps you honest with many rocks and steps. The morning clouds kept it cool for July and it didn't warm up until we were heading down.

I wanted to hike the entirety of the Finger Rock trail to get on that section of trail after the takeoff to Pima Canyon and Mt. Kimball, to see what the eastern slopes of Kimball and that part of the Pusch Ridgeline would be like. My dad wanted to climb the Window for his birthday deathmarch. So we put the two together and went up Finger Rock to the Window then down Ventana for a 14+ mile, 5000 foot throwdown.

The seldom visited section of Finger Rock is otherwordly. The views east into Pusch Ridge and towards Mt. Lemmon are so ridiculous. Crossing over the head of Ventana Canyon is also cool.

This is a very tough alternative way to climb the Window, actually giving more total gain than coming up Esperero because of the drop down to the Ventana divide, before climbing 1200+ feet all the way back up to the Window.
