Ascent Trip ReportMy brother was out visiting and my best friend had just moved to AZ (due to me coaxing him into coming out) and we wanted to check out some cactuses and get a good view of Phoenxi area. Walked Big Butte Loop around these Buttes and climbed up both "Little" and "Big" Buttes. Some areas where a little sketchy but luckily no one fell!
