2012-06-29 - Peak 2765 - Mineral Mountain Quandrangle   8 Photos   Jun 29, 2012
 
First climb of another three-summit day in the Mineral Mountain Quadrangle. With another scorcher forecast, I began the day with Peak 2765, which was the shortest and easiest climb.
 
2012-06-24 - Bell Butte - Mineral Mountain Quadrangle   28 Photos   Jun 24, 2012
 
My third and final ascent of the day. Although 106 degrees by now, the humidity was very low so I was far more comfortable than during the first climb of the day when it was 90 degrees with 48% humidity.

The second of three summits I'll successfully reach today was just a series of steep ups-and-downs all the way.
 
2012-06-24 - Dromedary Peak   34 Photos   Jun 24, 2012
 
This was the first climb of another three-summit day of peak bagging. It was already 90 degrees when I began before 6 am and with 48% humidity the conditions were quite oppressive!
 
2012-06-22 - Peak 3950 - Mineral Mountain Quadrangle   10 Photos   Jun 22, 2012
 
Already 103 degrees by time I started the climb, Peak 3950 would be my third and final ascent of the day.
 
2012-06-22 - Peak 3595 - Mineral Mountain Quadrangle   15 Photos   Jun 22, 2012
 
Peak 3595 will be the second of three summits I'll reach today. I didn't know it when I planned this day but the peak was part of a 208-acre fire a few weeks earlier. I was able to avoid the burnt area on the ascent.
 
2012-06-22 - Peak 3464 - Mineral Mountain Quadrangle   35 Photos   Jun 22, 2012
 
This climb was the start of my task to summit as many peaks in the Mineral Mountain Quandrangle as possible using no climbing gear, just my limited climbing skills. Limited mostly be a fear of heights. Peak 3464 was the first of three summits on the day.
 
2012-06-19 - Granite & West Granite Mountains   55 Photos   Jun 19, 2012
 
Due to the distance and 105° forecast I only planned to climb Granite Mountain, but being only an extra 2 miles I bagged West Granite Mountain as well. The end result of hiking the extra 75 minutes was that I lost 7 lbs.
 
2012-06-16 - Black Mesa Loop   34 Photos   Jun 16, 2012
 
Not having done Black Mesa Loop in a few years it was a good choice close to home. With a forecast high of 105 we hit the trail before 5 am and completed the 9-mile loop before 9 am at a 'cool' 92 degrees.
 
2012-06-14 - South Butte   36 Photos   Jun 14, 2012
 
South Butte would be the last of three summits I'd reach today. This climb the longest, steepest and hottest of the three, 105 degrees when I reached the summit at 12:30 pm.
