Greenwood Peak
February 2, 2020

Greenwood Peak as seen from near US-93. We followed the entire south ridge shown here

A white steer stares me down

Start of the hike, lots of cactus, nice slopes

The pointy summit first appears

This is Peak 3750. We sidehilled to the west

This is Peak 3866

The summit again. Looks like a lot of cliffs. Not exactly sure how to get up the thing

The summit from a higher (and closer) saddle. Still looks like a fool's errand. I don't see a way up. Maybe I should bail now

Below the summit rocks

We made it! View east, with Grayback Peak to the right, and the Burro Creek Bridge on US-93

View west, toward ranges fronting the Colorado River

View southeast, US-93 heading to Phoenix

View northwest, the Hualapai Mountains to the left and the town of Wikieup somewhere down there


Matthias eases down the summit boulders

The long ridge as we descend

Gang of cholla await us
