Topo and GPS tracks for todays outing from Christmas Tree Pass.  ~5mi with 2600ft of gain.  My first trip to Spirit (when I mistakenly tried a ridge traverse) is here.

Driving toward Christmas Tree pass from the highway.  I took it nice and slow- having ripped off my skid plate on my last trip (and not yet having time to get it replaced)

Spirit Trailhead.  There was another guy parked at the trailhead.  He headed out shortly after me and I'd see him on my descent.

The first quarter mile or so followed an old mining road.  (And from the tire tracks, folks were ignoring the posted signage)

Leaving the mining road and heading for the dip in the nearby ridge.  Picked up the DPS trail and would manage to stay on it for most of the route.

Looking back to the south.  One of those communications towers on the southern peak was a cell tower- reception was quite good today.

Approaching the dip in the ridge, lots of cholla and yucca and the occasional juniper bush.

Up to the ridgetop for the 1st good look at Spirit.  Had to dip down a bit, cross a couple of washes, and then head up slope to the climber right of Spirit.
