This is the longer east approach that meets up with the official trail just below the summit. I parked off Shadow Canyon at around 4230 feet, intersection with Moonshadow Lane. You can cut more than a mile each way if you continue on and park at the start of the climb. The road was starting to get a little sandy though and I baby my little Kia (sometimes... haha). This route is sun exposed pretty much most of the way, which was nice on this cool day. Some areas of the road are quite rocky, but nothing that bad. Very nice views and I was quite pleased with this hike. I didn't see anyone else out there. I will definitely be back again.

After hitting Aspen Peak, I went over towards the spire east of the bench. From the base on the west side, I headed down the chute and into the brush, trying to work around to the north side. I then worked up from the north side, but there was a vertical overhang of 30 feet or so. Based upon a visual inspection of the rock, it appears water flows down this. I don't think there is an easy way up the spire.

It is my first ascent of Hualapai Peak this year, so I figured I would publish a triplog. I took the east fork of the loop on the ascent, as well as for the return. I started around 4:30PM and the car said it was 82 degrees. I jogged most of the flats and downhills on the ascent. The pathway for the last bit of off trail is the most defined I have ever seen it. It seems someone completed some maintenance up there as the vegetation was pretty much cleared. I didn't come across anyone else on the trail, though there were maybe 6 or 7 vehicles in the lot when I began. Ideal temperatures for me, not too warm and not too cold for the duration of the hike.

This was my 3rd attempt to climb this and I was finally successful. The first two tries I was in the wrong chute. I was able to stumble upon information online which clued me that I needed to veer more to the left in the first third. There were two guys (non-hikers) checking out the foundation and mine shaft near the beginning. A few quick comments back and forth as I was heading up and continuing on.

I breached the first hump of the ascent and decided to stay to the right and head up to what appeared to be a mini saddle. Once there, I wrapped around a touch to the south side, but it looked too cliffy to me, so I retreated the approximately 150 feet or so back down to see what other options were present. As I was heading back down, I was surprised to see another guy further up, coming down. I raised my hand in a wave gesture, but he didn't react, so I am not sure if he saw me or not. I didn't see him again after that (until I was finishing up the descent), so we either somehow missed each other (not much area up there, so not sure how that happened) or he went down a way which I had inspected and deemed improbable.

I investigated the option furthest to the left adjacent to a platform of smoothed rock (cool area) and came upon a chokestone climb. It didn't look too easy, so I opted for the rock directly to the right. One or two steps to cross over with some exposure and not great holds, but it seemed better than the stone. From there I was in the area beneath the summit block. I stayed to the left and, with minor scrambles, I was on the summit.

It is nice that I was able to figure out a route for this. It was not nice that I stepped on those golf sized cactus balls multiple times. They were all over and simply unavoidable. My gps track was all over the place, but this is certainly less than one mile and about 1500 feet of gain. I will definitely be back again soon!

Quick hike up to the base of the summit slab of Unnamed Peak Contour 3772. Things seemed more green than the last time I was here a couple months ago. My route elevations went haywire around the base. Great views as always and a fun, steep hike.

I headed west on the continuation of Camelbak Road to the saddle. It wasn't my intention to go off trail, but Bull Mountain looming above was tempting me. I started up and quickly found that this route is much more manageable than going up the east face. The footing is more stable, less vegetation and not nearly as steep. It is also very nice. There are some cave like formations in the rocks once you to get to the ridge. I think I like the views from this end of the mountain more than the east side. This feels more like a hike, while the approach up the east face kind of beats you up a little bit. The ground was nice and soft from the rain this past Saturday, which made the off trail descent quick and fun. Continuing further along the south ridge of the mountain would enable you to complete a loop, so I will have to check that out another trip.

Over 70 degrees in February... I will take it! At the first rock band, I usually veer to the left and across it but decided to stay in the chute to the right. This totally kicked my butt today and I had to briefly stop a few times. I enjoyed this chute, there was rock a lot of the time to grab onto and also quite a nice red rockish section. Topping out to the right means you get a nice 0.05 mile walk before negotiating the very minor boulder section, which is fun. I went to my usual location and found a great place to rest, complete with back rest and foot rest. I failed to walk over to the true top because I didn't feel like it. I mostly returned the way I came and took another 20 minute break at the saddle. The recorded elevations on my route were jumping all over the place, so I adjusted the stats.

I had to take advantage of the warmer weather today and get a hike in before it turns colder next week. I went up to the lower tower first, then wrapped around to the ridge and headed up to the higher towers. It was quite windy as I got higher, so I was glad I chose the pants and long sleeves option. Went around to the back side and scrambled up the chute, which takes some precaution as it is quite steep and slick with a lot of loose rock. The views are great up there, but it was windy, so I didn't stick around as long as I would have liked to. Back to the ridge and the road, where I did the last bit again to get in some additional aeg.

I don't like the descent on this as the road is slick, but I stick to the edges where it is softer. The steepest section basically has small sand dunes where the road was cut in, which was fun and I was thankful for. Some options for wandering south from the ridge or going off road part way up and towards the other ridge/peak in close proximity to the towers.

I got started at 3:24PM so I wasn't quite able to make it to the peak and back before dark. My destination was the saddle, which is only about 0.25 miles and another 150 feet or so from the peak. The forecast called for sunny skies and I was disappointed that it was kind of overcast out with some cloud cover. The sun finally started to break through at the Bull Mountain saddle and stayed vibrant the rest of the hike, which was awesome.

I stayed on the utility path the whole time, instead of dipping into the drainage for the short section, which is what I did last time. The drainage felt several degrees cooler last time (not what I want in February), but would be a good warmer weather option. The utility easement goes up and then down to meet up with the drainage, so adds a bit more aeg. A lot of the descent was nice and moist from, presumably, the moisture earlier in the week. That was wonderful and I will always try to hike this shortly after some storms. I got a little off track for one part, but just kept heading down. Actually some nice rock in the little detour.

I heard gun shots (people like to shoot around Bull Mountain) that sounded quite close. Perhaps they were up at the Bull Saddle, I thought. I returned to the saddle to find that my cached favorite water bottle had been taken, which had 16 ounces of fluid in it. Morons. Lesson learned though to hide my water better. I rarely see anyone out there, so didn't think it would be an issue to leave it in plain sight.

I really enjoy this route. The views are very nice a lot of the way. I was eyeing Cerbat Peak, but that looks like it might be best tackled from the road north of Bull Mountain.

It was a warm winter day today and I wanted to check on the conditions at the Hualapais. To my knowledge, I think it has been some time since it has snowed up there. The trailhead area was completely clear and I began my hike up the road. Some patches pretty quickly on the road, which was a little disconcerting. About 0.65 miles in, the road was completely hard packed with snow/ice. If it was crunchy or soft that would be one thing, but I decided to turn around because it was hard and an ice skating rink. Not my idea of a good time.

I headed over to the Dean Peak road, which has been on my interest list for some time. That road appears to be completely in the sun, so a perfect day to check it out. I started through the RV parking lots and eventually made my way to the road. I didn't have the oomph in the legs today... some days are like that. I like the road, it is quite nice, with wide open views back towards Kingman. The road turns into the forest and ends at a junction between two radio towers. I proceeded left to the higher radio tower first. Tight switchbacks up. The sign on the locked fence said Getz Peak. I didn't know there was a Getz Peak, but now I do. I got a good look at the ridge that leads to Dean Peak... it looks like a bit of an effort. Went back down, then to the right and up to the other tower. This is more shaded, so there was some patches of snow/ice, but nothing that couldn't be negotiated. This tower is at the start of the ridge to Dean Peak.

I am glad I found a colder weather option for a steep trail and I'll investigate the off trail to Dean Peak in the near future.

I had to take advantage of the warmer weather prior to the cold of next week. This has turned into my go to hike during the winter months when it is too cold for the Hualapais. The dogs at the last house on Camelbak Rd. must recognize me now because they do not bark at me any longer :) I failed in recording the route for the ascent (we will call it operator error), but got one for the descent. At times, I went down different ways than I came up, which usually seems to be the case on this one. The route recorded my upper elevation around 5,060 feet, but looking at the topo map, there is a 5120' contour.

This was my first time in Palm Springs. I got started at 7:20AM local time and began ascending. I had worn a winter long sleeved shirt and another short sleeve over that, since it was in the 50s and I was cold. Well, that didn't last very long. It was amazing how fast the rising sun quickly warmed things up. Made it to the picnic benches where I cached a water bottle, then Rescue 1, where I did the same thing.

Trail traffic was very mild today. There were two people near the very beginning and a woman coming down about a mile or so up. I was following another guy who started before me and we flip flopped a couple times. I last saw him at about 4,000 feet where I took a brief rest to drink. I think he might have been heading for the tram. There was one trail runner and four other hikers on the descent. Then a handful of people close to the trailhead.

It felt like the trail was shaded for a good mile or so around mile 2-3. To me, the trail was getting a little squirley above 4,000 feet, with it leveling off and going down in places. I simply hate it when an uphill trail goes down as it makes things confusing and counterintuitive. It seemed like I went up, down, up a little crest, then back down when I came to the Palm Springs 5 mi stone with a left arrow? Left? Huh? I had come down to it! Okay, I guess this is going to be my turnaround point because I don't know what is going on. I looked around a little, still confused. Luckily, this hike was the first time I ever used route scout. I had only looked at it briefly once to confirm if it was working or not. Now, when I really needed it, I was able to see that the official route went around to the left, while I had continued to go up and then down the crest. Great, I am where I should be, so I went and sat down in the shade, ate and hydrated.

I headed back to the trailhead, with route scout helping me on a couple occasions when I had gone a bit astray. My phone battery died with 3 miles remaining. I came across some folks coming up just past the picnic benches and they asked if I had left a blue water bottle at the bench, which I thought was a bit odd. I had stashed it in the bush behind the bench, but someone had moved it on top of the table in the sunlight. Strange, but at least they didnt drink any of it.

I thought I had a chance of making it to 6,000-6,500 feet today, but it wasn't in the cards. It was warmer than I thought it would be and I would have needed more water to make it to that elevation, so it was good I turned around when I did.

I was pleased with my effort. Much props to those hazers who have done the whole thing!

This is a few miles outside of Oatman. It is very steep and a very ominous place to be hiking. The first time I was here, I turned around at the smooth rock climbing section in the chute. I wanted to take a look at it again and still was not comfortable. I made it up the first tier, but there was another tier ahead and it still looked steep beyond that (but it appears the route might turn left). So, I turned around again. I went back down towards the mine shift and went left to explore the other side of the mountain. I started working my way up from there, negotiating a couple small scrambles. It is perhaps doable, but looked pretty darn cliffy ahead, so I headed back down to safer ground. In order to save face, I did a quick ascent up the radio tower road on the way home :lol:

Hiking prior to noon is not really my thing, so I had to make some modifications to my morning food regiment. Linda was using route scout, which was my first exposure to it. I really like the stats and the calculation of aeg, so I will hopefully be trying it out soon. Gradual climb at the beginning, with some dips and through some pools of water. I enjoyed the rocky sections higher up and once the peak was gained, there were very nice 360 degree views, including the intriguing resort beneath. A rescue helicopter passed through and we could see it hovering in the distance, further up canyon. We took a look at Salvation Peak afterwards, which might be doable starting from nearby to the resort. Nice to meet Linda and hike a new trail.

I started a little after 2 PM. I was hoping for a little warmer temperatures hiking in Phoenix, but no such luck. It was gloomy, 54 degrees and windy, which means cold for me; I wore two long sleeved shirts, plus my winter head gear. It drizzled a bit on the way to the basin and when I got to the basin, I stopped to evaluate. The rocks were wet and slick, with water flowing in the flow line, which is the easiest path of ascent/descent. I was wearing my trail runners, which do not have the greatest traction. I decided to just wait for a bit and ended up hanging at the bottom of the basin for around 40 minutes. The rocks were dry by now, so what the heck, might as well start heading up. Crap, away from the flowing water, off on the slope to the left, this seemed steep and slippery to me! It's been several years since I hiked this and I didn't remember it being this challenging. It kind of bummed me out because I was going to power uphill, but instead I was searching for hand and foot placements. I went up some and sat down for several minutes. Went up some more and sat down again for several minutes, still indecisve. Ah, it looks better off to the right, so I'll head that way. Pretty good, gained momentum, I remembered why I love this trail so much and soon enough I was off to the races.

Nice to hit the peak again as this is definitely one of my top 3 hikes.

This was my first visit to Lake Pleasant. I had just enough time to hike to the point and back in the last hour before sunset. It was windy and a little cold. The view from the point was very nice. Nice little trail.

I took a more direct route on the last half this trip, which was steeper and required some scrambling. I liked this better, so I will keep going this way in the future. I started up the south face of the large summit rock, but quickly turned back. It does look doable, but not something I will ever attempt as the difficulty appears to increase the higher up you go. There is another peak just around the southwest corner so I might check that out next time.

The hike begins at Black Joe Mine Rd., which is at milepost 6 on the 93. It is about a mile south of the large parking lot for the Arizona Hot Springs hike. Mt. Wilson stands at 5,456' and is the second highest point in the Black Mountains. It's neighbor to the north is Fortification Hill, which is the more popular hike in the area. The most common route is to take Black Joe Mine Rd. for 2.5 miles, then head up the west ridge for 2 miles until you reach the peak.

I went as far as I could in an hour and 5 minutes, which put me about 0.6 miles into the ridge and at the 3,884 foot high point. Super steep ridge and I loved the ascent. To that point, there was one minor section of scrambling. As much as I loved the ascent, I did not enjoy the descent. It is pretty slick and I stayed on rock as much as I could. You would think it would be easy to follow a ridge, but all the "pathways" look a bit similar going down and I was kind of all over the place. Much easier to follow going up... just keep going up! I kept veering left and down towards the drainage and had to course correct back to the ridge. What took me 25 minutes to go up, took over 40 minutes to go down. Kind of pathetic.

I will be back again and go further next time. My initial assessment of this hike is that it is Mt. Humphrey summit trail on steroids. I couldn't take any photos because my phone battery is dead (need a new one). The views of Lake Mead start just a short distance up the ridge. Very nice.

I was here a few days ago but didn't have time to make the top prior to sunset. I went back today and completed the task. It seems each time I have done this, I go a little bit different way each time. Today, I went down a different chute than I went up and I was pleased I could follow that for the whole descent, with no cliffing out. It was about 40 minutes up once off trail from the road and 50 minutes down. Always slower down for me as I am more cautious with my steps. Some butt sliding as well. There was one woman in a quad on the road looking for her flashlight which she said she had lost earlier this morning. I totally freaked her out when I caught up to her at the side of her vehicle (she was driving ridiculously slow to search). I still need to do this from the west side, but that is a longer approach, so I am not really a fan.

I went one mile on the mine road to the east approach and up that ridge to about 4650', just past the second band of rock. The vegetation has greatly dissipated, which is very nice. When I started up this a few months ago, I turned around because progress was slow going and I didn't want to deal with it. Made it back just before sunset.
