Silver Bell Peak
December 30, 2016

Silver Bell Peak in the early morning

Hiking toward the peak. This is the southeast edge of the high ridge, not the summit

We went up the ramp that leads to the lowpoint just to the left of the"high" peak seen in this image

The saguaro give a sense of how steep this section was

Now on the ridge, the summit is visible

Scott and Matthias weave through the rocks along the ridge

The summit as seen from the saddle below it

Suddenly, we were there. Here's me

Look back at the ridge we had to traverse

View northeast at Ragged Top, then Picacho Peak and Newman Peak farther back
