Hike time: 35 min. up, 20 min. on summit
Weather: 101°, sunny, hot!
About this climb: Arrived just before 10am expecting parking to be a non-issue. Was very wrong! However, I was fortunate to be the only car circling Echo Canyon at the time and a car in front of me backed out. Got a great spot in the main lot!
Summit was absolutely beautiful, no swarms of flying ants like two weeks ago. I spent 20+ minutes enjoying the view before heading down.
