“El Escorpion Peak can be accessed directly from the neighborhood below, or via a trail that runs along Bell Canyon Road, or via a trail off of Vanowen at Valley Circle. The latter trail goes up the valley past the Cave of the Munits (or Shaman's Cave), and up the ridge line above and behind the cave to the peak.
A hike up to the peak and back down to the valley floor makes for a 3 1/2 mile out-and-back, but entails at least class 3 rock climbing at the peak.”

“On 2/8/16 it was cold enough at the peak that my water bottle froze in under half an hour after pulling it out of my pack. This is in contrast to the ~38 degree weather that Mountain-forecast projected for the day. There was enough snow and ice to need crampons / ice axe. Gusts of wind felt stronger than 20mph.
I hiked from Shorty's Well at -240 ft to the peak. Snow started around 5,000 or 6,000 feet, and was up to waist deep in drifts along the ridge near the peak, with most of the peak having ~2ft of snow.”

“On November 18th, 2015, I completed a solo summit from the ADK Loj. The hike was beautiful and a relative walk in the woods until the last mile and a half or so before the summit of Wright Peak. Even at this point, the trail had become coated in ice but micro spikes served as sufficient traction. During the last 0.4 miles of ascent, the trail became a scramble up an absolutely ice encrusted terrain, during which I regretted not bringing crampons and an ice ax. I had noticed the wind picking up during this time. Upon emerging from the treeline, I was struck by the force of wind. Traveling from the treeline to the summit, approximately 300 yards by my rough estimate, took a full hour. During this time, I scrambled and still fell during outstanding gusts. I am an experienced backpacker with over 150 nights of camping, a frequent rock climber, and a collegiate rugby player, but the power of this wind was incredible. This was only my 3rd time peak bagging, but that's probably obvious since I had not checked the weather at the peak. This peak, as I learned later, has a reputation as one of the windiest 46ers. Enjoy the ride.”
