Getting There

The path to Delta wasn't really changed by the 2020 fire. It just cleared out some jungly stuff and burned up deadfall. The firefighters actually used the old Delta trail to build the 2020 firebreak. 

Park at Marshall Gulch picnic parking. Go earlyish on a weekend or you may get aced out of a parking spot. Take the Aspen trail SOUTH out of parking. NOT the sunset trail, NOT the streambed, NOT the Marshall Gulch trail. Follow the ASPEN trail for 10 or so minutes until you hit the wilderness boundary sign. At this point pick up the path heading east into the 2020 firebreak. After about 100 yards you will be on the ridge crest. You can see Ireland way across the canyon to the east. There is a big stump here with a cairn on top. This stump marks the turnoff south to the Steep BTW.

At this point you are very close to Echo. If you keep heading east for 100 feet, and THEN turn south, you will be there in about a minute.

For Delta, keep heading east (more or less towards Ireland), down the slope, until you get back into actual forest again. Then swing south, following cairns, paralleling sabino creek, slowly dropping down to the crag.

It takes 15 min to get to the ridge crest near Echo, 20 more to get to Delta.

It is also POSSIBLE to get to Delta from Raycray, but I leave that to the student.
