Ascent Trip Report

Accessed the peak from a pull off along Kinney Road (K22) almost north and perpendicular to the highpoint. Rather than starting at the end of the mountain where the trails began I ended up hiking in to the lower trail, crossing it, and then crossing up to the ridge trail from there. Would have been easier just coming in off the eastern end straight up to the ridge trail. Still a pretty easy hike and always a pleasure to be out among the Saguaros.
