Peak 4373, also known as Ridge Crest Peak, seen here, centered

A little closer

The trail goes up and over the ridge to the left. The off-trail segment goes right, cuts up and to the right and achieves the high ridge at the low point seen here

Now on the high ridge, the summit is up there somwhere

The highest point up ahead

At the top. The rock to the left is the very top

View north of Jeffords Peak, highest point of the Tortolita Mountains

Southeast view into the morning glare

The Santa Catalinas, with snow still on its highest points

The Alamo Spring Trail runs below the ridge to the right

Cool geology

In better lighting as I hike out, the peak is seen here in the distance
