I started my hike at 7 AM at a bone-chilling 34 degrees at the El Camino del Cerro trailhead, since the Kings Canyon parking lot was closed for improvements.  I later met a group of hikers who started there anyway, and just parked off road.  3.5 miles of steady climbing on well-maintained trail to the saddle junction, then the wind picked up and never relented for the final 1.2 mile push up a ridge to the summit.  I was the first to the top, but I could see the other hiking group coming up the ridge and joined me for a group photo a few minutes later.  Very windy at the top but great sweeping views of Tucson and the surrounding desert floor.

Hike #5 in my quest to complete all #SixPackofPeaks in 3 days
