MusiscaWarm February Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2012
One report I saw was of someone who did the summit 2011 in Feb. For anyone who is interested in a winter summit and is more of an avid hiker than hardcore mountaineer I would say consider the recent precipitation, temperature and bringing a good dose of common sense with you. If it has been warm with little/no snow, a winter summit is very reasonable. It was still very cold and windy at the summit, so be prepared. I used Yak Trax and found them critical for my summit. Great hike. My first winter alpine summit. Thanks to the REI guy in Phoenix to recommend the Yak Trax as well as for suggesting hitting up Diablo Burger after. Yum!

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2011


great weather, great hike, millions of bugs forced us off the summit down quite a ways before we could sit and eat. Wish there was 60mph winds to blow to bugs off! counted about 275 people that signed in the trail register at the bottom this day.

A perfect day on the trail, a bit of snow, little wind, and a cloudless sky.

A nice hike up, but the lightning on the way down was crazy! The ridge buzzed like an electrical plant.

Beautiful crisp fall day for hiking! Started up around sunrise and got to the summit early with only a few other people at the top. Passed a lot more people on the way down.

RickOShea82An adventure  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2011


Rain, lightning, thunder, sleet, temps in the 30's, and strong winds when combined with almost zero visibility above the tree line made this quite an adventure. Also, being from Louisiana, I was affected by the altitude at around 11,000 ft. Awesome day though all in all. Very beautiful hike and so different than the rest of Arizona.

voxnihiliLong Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2011


Left St. George, UT around 1:30 am in order to be at the Grand Canyon for sunrise. Due to possible thunderstorms the next day, we left the Canyon and drove to Humphreys to do the hike that afternoon.

I didn't get to experience the famous Humphreys' winds; just bugs and sunshine.

TJ311SUPER WINDY!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2011


This is the windiest summit I've ever encountered. It was unbelievable! I'd have to guess that winds were at 60 mph+ on the last little rise of the summit ridge. We had to scramble the last 100 feet due to the wind picking us up off our feet. We made it though.

colinrHumphrey's Peak Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2011


It was very windy on top and there were lots of people on the trail. There were areas in the shade that required walking on a few feet of snow, but the going was easy and the trail obvious due to the volume of people that had alreay been on the trail recently. The views and overall experience were great!

Hiked to the top of Humphery's Peak for the first time Saturday afternoon. A great hike, with amazing views from the top. It was definitely windy once we got out of the trees, but all the wind aside I would highly recommend this hike!

chrisbrownGreat time with my bro  Sucess!


Hiked this with my brother in early June of 2008. Was a great time and we had beautiful weather! There was still snow on the top which was nice. We started our hike around 3:30pm and descended at night. We also had a pretty scary run in with some bears on our way down. We were passing though on motorcycles and camped that night in the parking lot.

Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2010


Did this one as a nice alternate route on the AZT with Lady Wawa. Kachina Peaks Wilderness, I'm sure, was superior to the unfinished "official" AZT route.

So many people warned me about how windy and cold it would be at the summit but it was beautiful and I didn't need my coat. I did this as a side trek off the Arizona Trail thru-hike coming up from Snowbowl and then going down Schultz Pass.
