Great pics. Another thing to add to my list. I could probably make it to Pyramid, if not the others.

Nice!! I've been spending some time in that area and looking at that very route, so it's cool to see your report! I wasn't sure about the terrain above Pyramid Peak towards Rosa.

I was out a few weeks ago and saw three sheep above the rock tanks. Ocotillo is starting to bloom...

Another great TR, Ziphius. Great pics. Hand drawn maps?? Suppose your gps is the "backup" to your compass? Really nice.

Nice. I have done a similar loop a couple times and it is one of few hikes I have repeated. Sure can be a long day. Rosa Point has the best view of the Salton Sea.

Tommy, yeah if I'm going somewhere new with complex terrain, I've decided to spend some time sketching features ahead of time - forces me to immerse myself in the route. I had a GPS with me too. smile

Great trek. I've always thought of doing that route. Nice photo perspectives. I see you had the rock tanks noted. That's as far as I've gone on that trail. Did the tanks contain water?

Rockhopper, yep at least one of the tanks had water. We viewed them from the ridge above and didn't go down to them.
