Weather: 76°, bright sun
Time to summit: 25 minutes
About this hike: I pushed it hard and was disappointed that my time was just under 25 minutes (24:56). Mountain was crowded today, as to be expected now that the weather's getting perfect. I had to park in the surrounding residential streets--something I haven't had to do in a while.
At the end of my hike most of the PHX Fire Department was showing up...so apparently a mountain rescue was about to go down. Gratefully my hike was otherwise uneventful.
