Mescalito Peak with Meetup


On Saturday, the 24th I led 14 hikers from Meetup.com to the summit of Mescalito Peak in Red Rock Canyon. Mescalito Peak was the first hike I every led for Meetup. I had so much fun on that hike I decided to become a member of Meetup. I met a lot of good people through Meetup and I have developed some great friendships.

Even though the rock was wet in places on today's hike, it was not slippery. We followed the original route, which is the southern route, to the summit. The route is in good shape and well cairned. There's a new sign-in book at the summit and the container is an ammo box.
