DescriptionOBJECT: All 4 of the Peaks in a day. This is a great adventure for anyone that wants to scramble 4th and easy 5th class for a day. This is also not to be taken lightly. The Four Peaks are rugged, and committing. Most parties go without ropes, in order to save time, thus falling is not an option, and there are locations where falls will most likely result in death or serious injury. The best approach is to hike around to the south via the Amethyst Mine trail and up the gully between peaks 3 and 4 (1 being Browns, and 2, 3, 4 going south). Once on top of 4, look north and plan out your attack. Head north up and over peak 3, up and over peak 2, and up and down Browns Peak back to the car.
Route finding is the name of the game. Very satisfying adventure. For more information check out www. hikearizona.com
