Ascent Trip Report

We followed the trails, then up an east ridge, where I almost stepped on a snake. The BM "Tonto" is cemented into a rock outcrop on the west edge of the summit, about 3 feet lower than the highest point over on the east edge. Went down the north slopes back to the trail. Suggestion: don't do what we did going up.
