The Ridgeline (need I say more?)

  • Feb 11, 2012 · 7:00 AM

SUPERSTITION RIDGELINE - Carney Springs/ West Boulder Saddle / Flatiron - off trail 

Saturday, February 11th
                        Leader:  Steve Desrochers                    

 Length:  +/- 12 miles  **

Rating:  Strenuous A+ Arduous 


Elev. Change:  +3980 and -4220

Phone StevieD for time.

FEES: Park entry fee will be split among participants - Also, if you are not current on your $15 annual membership the hike is $5.00. Please bring  ca$h.

We will shuttle some of vehicles to the Siphon Draw trailhead and drive approximately 22 miles to the Carney Springs trailhead. From the trailhead we will hike to West Boulder Saddle, and away we go, following the ridgeline to the Flatiron and down Siphon Draw. Some scrambling and bouldering.  The high altitude changes the local weather patterns. Rain, hail, sleet, and low clouds are always a possibility. Since the weather is unpredictable, bring a gallon of water, food, sunscreen, rain gear, warm jacket, and gloves. Long pants recommended.
Don’t forget the camera! 

**Hike mileage is one way as this hike will involve shuttling vehicles.

Spectacular views of the Superstitions!

    As most of us know, the hardest part about being a good hike leader is dialing in the weather. StevieD sure did THAT in spades! This was a great group of energetic, capable hikers.
    Slight mishap on the Siphon descent for one of our crew - but the other members of the gang pulled together and the 'patient', a trouper by all accounts, is on the road to recovery.
