Weather: 92º, sunny
Time: 33 minutes
About this Hike: Been a while since I've had a weekend where I'm able to squeeze in a timed Camelback climb. Considering that it was fairly hot out, I guess 33 minutes wasn't terrible. I took just a few short pauses on the way up, usually for a quick drink of water. And, those pauses primarily came in the home stretch in that final, steep area of scrambling.
Neither the trails nor the parking area were very busy this morning. It's a great conundrum—cooler temps and busy trails, or challenging heat and quieter trails?
