Climbing the gully to the summit of Browns Peak

Description 

Brown's peak is the tallest and northern most of the four peaks. Fractured rock with lots of holds and places for pro, but also plenty of loose rock. There is also a scramble to the top of Browns peak so expect plenty of hikers on weekend days.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for Four Peaks Wilderness to the Lone Pine Saddle trail head. Follow the trail up the railroad ties on a good trail which wanders up towards the peaks for 2.5 miles or so. A trail continues to the base of the class 2 Hikers gully. Plan on at least 2.5 hours from central Phoenix to the base/start of the hiker's gully.

The Ladybug 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Brown's Peak
This route climbs the buttress to the right of the hiker's gully. The first pitch is okay and pretty short. The second pitch is great and the highlight of the climb. The third pitch is a little sketchy and not that much fun. Also, you should note that this route does not take you all the way to the summit of Brown's peak. When you get to the top of the Ladybug you then have to rap down to the hikers gully or to the southwest where you can scramble over to the gully.
