A distant view of the peak

Closer in...

... and closer, where the angle has changed a little

The breach in the first set of cliffs

The upper cliffs and summit

The upper cliffs as we approach

The breach in the upper cliffs becomes more evident

North view from the top: Aztec Peak is to the left, Lake Roosevelt is seen in back and Black Mesa is also visible in the center

Northwest view: Four Peaks, Lake Roosevelt and Redmond Mountain to the right, I think that's Klondyke Mountain in the mid-center

South view, Pinal Peak in back, and a cross on the summit

Summit rocks and east view, Haystack Butte in to the far left

Southeast view, Apache Peaks

The upper cliffs as we descend

Approach the lower cliffs from above

Matthias as we hike toward those lower cliffs

Coming down that breach in the lower cliffs

The lower cliffs in better light

Montage: Me, the becnhmark, the name "John Monarrey (?)" on the cross and Matthias on the summit from near that cross
