San Tan Mountain
February 5, 2017

San Tan Mountain in the early morning light

Getting closer, walking across the desert flats

The peak (right) from within the major drainage we followed

Higher up in this drainage, looking back at a conical peak and the pass below it that we climbed to, then down into the drainage

High up on the slopes, it was very steep

Two climbers relax below the rock pinnacle along the ridge

The higher summit as viewed from the northern bump

Looking back at the northern summit, the rock pinnacle, and the slope we climbed

Me on the peak. The Goldmine Mountains are in back

Two climbers also convene on the peak

Those same two guys kept following me down the steep drainage

Looking back at the top, now a thousand feet below

Walking back across the desert flats, one last look at the peak
