Ascent Trip Report

Group of 10 hikers went to Anniversary Narrows, then up the wash to a point north of a notch or saddle with Anniversary Narrows Peak on the south. Climbed to the saddle, a steep loose climb, then gained the summit. There's an anti-vortex near the summit, a place where very warm air was flowing out of a hole in the rocks. From there we hiked down to the Bowl of Fire, following the easiest and obvious route. A quick jaunt through the Bowl of Fire and a couple miles in a flat wash on jeep road back to the cars.

Looked over Lake Mead and Fortification Hill to Mount Wilson (AZ) which I climbed yesterday. Welcome 2010! So far, so good.
