Entrance to the canyon

Ironwood tree

Partway up the canyon, a downward view

From the guzzler, looking up at the saddle

At the saddle, the summit is off to the right. The immediate slope is above us

The summit as seen from the false summit

The summit!

From the summit, looking down back at our ascent ridge and the saddle, plus lots of beautiful mountain scenery

Southwest view, with the Vopoki Ridge in the back

On the descent, looking down over the rocky maze we need to thread to get back to the saddle

Same vantage, now slightly right. The guzzler is barely visible below in the canyon

Scott and Tanya Kelley walking down from the saddle

The other Scotts checking out the guzzler

Scott, Tanya and Scott Peavy marching out.

My pants after two days of butt-scooting. Everyone got a free show!
