Ascent Trip Report

Started at the Sandero Esparanza Trailhead on Golden Gate Rd, and diverted off of the Hugh Norris trail on the way back down from Wasson Peak. Found a clear-ish path through the brush and jumping cholla. Mostly unpacked sand dotted with some steady boulders. Took a few minutes to reach the peak from the trail. Beautiful 360 view from the top, I enjoyed hanging out with the lone saguaro cactus that lives at the summit.
