Ragged Top Peak
Ragged Top pokes out of the desert floor in the Ironwood Forest National Monument between Picacho Peak and Tucson. From a distance, the hike up to the top appears technical, but the most difficult part of the climb is avoiding all of the spiky plants and loose rock. Off trail in the desert, every step must be taken carefully- cholla buds, cactus limbs, and cat claw branches are scattered across the landscape. Here are two of my favorite panoramas from near the top of Ragged Top.
