That's Phoenix behind me. From the top of Camelback Mountain. Photo compliments of the Happy Hiking Buddy -- © 2005.
Described here, the seven summits. Simple problem; climb each of Phoenix's seven summits. No sweat. Easy. The farthest of the lot is 7 miles to the top of South Mountain and back. I've already done Camelback.
But that's pretty casual. Just to make things interesting, let's do it all in a single day, especially since I am not really close by.
Here are the details:
|Shadow||1 mile||440 ft climb||Moderate|
|Shaw Butte||5||670||Moderately Strenuous|
|20.3 Miles||5999 feet uphill|
Seems like it might make for a compelling hike. Some time in March, while it's still cool. Care to join me?
