The double-bypass

The double-bypass

We did the double-bypass on Sunday. The route starts by climbing up Windgate Pass from the Scottsdale side.  At the top is this view, which is looking to the east.  Unfortunately my saddle is blocking the view of 4 Peaks:

After this climb, you head down the back side, then loop around and climb up to the even higher Bell Pass. It’s a tough climb the whole way, with copious amounts of walking for me, but a great view from the top of each pass.  This is the top of Bell Pass, looking Southwest toward Camelback and Squaw Peak.  We started down there, where it looks kinda flat.
