“This is a short but very intense route with two sections of scrambling involved.”— Niall Murphy
Once you reach the west side, you'll notice a very dry, dusty, and rocky mountain face where it is possible to lose the trail. Pay close attention to a few key saguaros that you can use as a reference along your descent. Once you reach the highest saddle, you'll encounter one last section of the journey where you'll need to scramble down a slope and then back up to the highest point on the south side.
There is an old ammo box with a log up here. Be sure to treat the log with care as many people just turn it into a scribble pad.
