This will be a relatively slow, fun scramble on a moderately challenging route. The route depends on the group and the weather but expect some good challenges. NO BEGINNERS. I will only allow people on this hike who I have scrambled with and know their skills or can convince me they are comfortable with class 3 scrambling. Please email me your experience if you have not been on one of my hikes. Expect some exposure. There are obstacles that require advanced scrambling skills and you must be able to lift and lower your body weight.

I am an outdoor enthusiast who would rather be on a backcountry backpacking trip than a stroll on the beach (although I do love the beach!).
Living in Las Vegas has afforded me the opportunity to easily explore the Southwest region of the United States.
A nature lover, I am often found at the end of the pack taking photos and videos of the wildlife found on the trails. Colorful flowers, desert animals, and unusual geological rock formations are often the majority of my photos.
