2020-05-16 Escudilla & South Mtn.

Well it's my first day up at my cabin in Alpine AZ and I decided to tackle one of the more difficult peaks, Escudilla Mountain.  It has a little more than 1,500 feet of gain but really not that hard except it starts at over 9,000 feet and goes up to almost 11,000.  What makes this one difficult is all of the fallen trees on the trail.  It gets worse at the top and I decided to go to the designated high point just to the north which was a massive pain in the ass.  From the time I got out of the car it was almost 7 hours of play.  I decided that 7+ miles of difficult hiking wasn't good enough so I drove up to South mountain for some more.  I'll stop here, and let you enjoy the video I put together.... with some screw-ups that I made during post-production.


The logbooks and loadout are below
