Superstition Peak
January 30, 2016

The summit is the point to the left of the cliffs, as seen from the trailhead in the morning sun

Walking up the old road. We ascended the canyon to the right

The high saddle

We're almost at this high saddle. Hoodoos start to become more abundant

From the high saddle, the summit is still a ways away

Now a little closer, but not much

Now much closer

And even more closer

And yet closer still

The final scramble to the top

We made it

Weaver's Needle looks so puny from here

Looking northwest at No Name Peak and the Flatiron area

Descending amid the hoodoos

Ridge route and giant cliffs facing south

Descending back to the cars

Parting shot as we drove out

Montage: A delicate cairn, interesting hoodoos, spring-fed pools, and a shot of the summit
