Hiked this one with my dad. We wore helmets in the chute. Not so bad, the drive in was the worst part.

JSteubsFour Peaks Winter Storm
Date Climbed: Dec 18, 2011
Our group of 7 planned on getting to the summit of Four Peaks but had to call it quits when we decided not to go any further with 3+ feet of snow and we weren't even to the saddle yet. We also had lost the trail because of the snow which had covered it. We were thinking that the summit probably had about 7+ feet of snow and that the chute would have been covered and very dangerous. It would still be a dream to do it in the Winter

Hike is great. Climbing can be difficult and cold in windy conditions.

The chute still had a lot of snow which made this a very interesting hike. Looking forward to attempting the other three hopefully in the near future.

Third time summiting Browns Peak. Exciting (and a bit unnerving) as always!

WaterGuyMain Chute  Sucess!

WaterGuy

Did this when I was 13. Camped at the saddle and the next morning me and some fellow scouts started climbing the chute without really thinking what we were doing. After some scrambling we were able to make it to the top but were a bit worried about going back down the chute. An adult leader followed us up and we were able to find a round about way back to the saddle without going down the saddle. I remember that I was a bit scared but that I also had a blast doing it.
Did it on Nov. 1999

radracerTraverse 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 16, 2010
I've climbed Brown's peak a few times. My brother and I tried to traverse all 4 peaks last year, but ran out of water on peak 3. This time we each started out with 170oz water and made it. Caution: the area between peak 2 and 3 is the most difficult. Do not attempt if you are not able to perform several pull-ups. Great to remember, but I will not try it again.

Excellent views. My first Arizona summit. Snow on the northeast slopes. None in the scree chute. I had the entire mountain to myself. Rewarding hike/climb.

Date Climbed: May 16, 2008

I know Humphreys is higher, but IMO Browns was much more satisfying. The scree chute is not fun, but not overly terrible and not too long. Not sure I'd want to try it with snow or ice. Someday I would like to try the traverse, probably in March or April before it starts getting too hot.

Climb went really fast, and the rock was much more solid than I expected. The chute would be a little more interesting if there were other folks in it at the same time.

Mike, Andy and I made the climb together. Mike and I attempted the climb last year but got turned around due to blizzard conditions on top. Great day to climb weather was perfect with a little snow on the peaks. Could see San Francisco Peaks from summit. Nice climb. If I did this climb again, I would take a rope and rappel down the chute...you don't have to but it would make things faster and a little more fun(imo).

We climbed this by way of Browns trail. The Scree chute was a challenge made more fun with some snow. My 10 year old and I enjoyed the summit about 11:30 am and the view was spectacular!

Saw Humphreys Peak, Lemon and many more!

cdogLadybug Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2005

cdog

climbed the ladybug route (5.5) with my girlfriend on Brown's Pk. This was a really fun, moderate climb. Unfortunately, we found the route ended and required a scheisty rappel into the north gully to reach the actual summit. And yes, there are actually ladybugs on the route.
On other climbs, I've made the summit of Pk 2, and also summited Brown's via the south face / brush route.

Everything you read about the Four Peaks Motherlode is true: exposed, difficult, treacherous, route-finding, etc. We went south-to-north, so went to Amethyst Mine and then up to Peak 4. Brush-bashing was annoying, but not awful. Peak 3 looks impossible, but there are routes that guide you through the cliffs if you're patient. The ramp up Peak 2 is steep, and the crux is as advertised: incredibly exposed and is guaranteed to get your adrenaline going. The rest seemed easier compared to that. Great day in the mountains and these peaks have some of the best views in AZ!

Did a few county hp's before & after the state highpointer convention in Flagstaff. This is a cool little hike, but the drive time was longer than the hike time! This is a remote peak. Went up the north face gully and I thought the crux was class 4 because I had to face in going down. Made the mistake of approaching the peak via Hwy 88 to Roosevelt Lake. Avoid that road as it took FOREVER!
