Good vigorous hike. Started at Lincoln & 32nd with my dog, we ascended the peak just to the southwest of the bench on the saddleback in about 1 hour. Fantastic view, nice breeze on the top. Better wear hiking boots if you're going to climb the peak; sharp rocks will tear up your ankles if you're not careful!

Went up Ruth Hamilton (8B) late yesterday. About 110. First did the easy Nature Trail (304) loop west to east and then swung over to the 8B on the way out. I call the 8B moderate at best, verging on hard, given the steep, narrow, and Rocky trail. It's a bit of a climb with a handy park bench waiting at the top. 8B travels between Piestewa Peak Park and Quartz Ridge right next door. Not a bad little side trail.
