Really enjoyed this hike. Climbed up Finger Rock and down Pima. Took me 5:48 total time. Had no trouble route finding on the way up but did have some trouble staying on the trail going down Pima at the top, especially around the saddle. Had to back track about 25m a few times. Watch for the cairns left by others to help with staying on course. Trail isn't too well travelled at the top. Would like to do it again and go back out on Finger Rock to see how that goes, steeper but much shorter. Started late at 9:00 and took lots of water. An earlier start would probably offer some shade on the climb.
We need to add trail markers. Especially on the return. At least three times three of us got off the trail and spent too much time bush whacking to find it again. Ninety (90) degree weather. One 911 call. Pima County Sheriff rescue. Third time I have lost the trail.
