I wanted to get some hiking in during the brief break in the weather, so on Sunday Ted Markus and I headed out toward Anza Borrego. Our first two options seemed like weather might still be a factor, so we went for our third choice to hit some of the peaks Ted needed to summit for the 100 Peak Challenge.
First up was Red Hill.
We took the ridge route I had used twice before up to the summit. After signing the register at the summit, we opted to drop into the wash to the north and follow it out. It was a great choice!
I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
