Ascent Trip Report

Approached from south, coming up Mormon Cyn from Sycamore CG. Tried connector depicted on topo from Spot 8762 toward Cima Park. On north side of Chiricahua, trail is obliterated by dense brush and treefall. Day's lesson (repeated later): if a sign does not indicate a trail, then that trail no longer exists. Although started to improve a little as it turned north, I bushwhacked straight up to Junction Saddle to rejoin the others.

South side of South Flys is generally open country. Heading for Flys, we dropped off the N to NE side. Big mistake; total mess of dense brush plus treefall. Recommend trying SE to pick up the trail going around the E side to Round Park.
