Ascent Trip Report

Visiting this area after a few years absence from Arizona. Needed to sort out the peaks I added here in person. Decided on an East Ridge as well as splitting the main summit area into East and West Summits. Access to all these was via the Bursera Trail. Overall it took about 30-45 minutes to get up and visit the three listed peaks, then a fast 30 minute descent back to the 19th Street TH. GPS shows my route from the TH, an easy trek on a well maintained path with obvious side spurs up to each of the three summits.
